There are basically two options I am considering, a 4 year Physics course and a 4 year Math+Physics course. I want to be able to do theoretical work (i.e be competent in the mathematics that a theoretical physicist would be) but I don't want to throw out experimental work altogether. If I choose the Math+Phys course, there wont be any experimental modules. But I don't know whether the Physics course has all the math that I want to do. You can find course outlines of both here : Physics ( MPhys ) http://www2.warwick.ac.uk/study/undergraduate/courses/depta2z/physics/f300/ Maths and Physics (MMathPhys) http://www2.warwick.ac.uk/study/undergraduate/courses/depta2z/physics/gf13/#modules If any of you theoretical physicists/physicists can tell me whether the straight physics MPhys course will disadvantage me too much (from learning the math necessary to be a theoretical physicist), I would be grateful.
