Hello everybody! I am about to finish high school and I want to study Physics at uni. I am more interested in the theoretical aspects of this subject rather than in the experimental ones and I appreciate pure Math as well. For these reasons, I applied for some Theoretical Physics and joint Math&Physics courses. I live in Italy and some universities in my country are well known for such subjects (such as Rome, Bologna or Pisa), yet courses are known to be structured in a really traditional way providing mainly frontal lectures with hardly any stimulating and alternative experience. Italian unis also lack modern equipment and structures due to their low budget. UK universities seem to offer more "avant-garde" teaching methods along with new and efficient structures. Student unions and similar organisations, almost non-existent in Italy, have a great appeal on me too. Therefore, as I mentioned, I applied for some courses through UCAS and I've been offered a place by Warwick (Math&Phys) and Manchester (theoretical Physics) so far. Exploring websites such as QS Rankings I found out that the former has an excellent reputation for Math (25th place) but not for Physics (151-200), while Manchester is regarded as a very good uni for both subjects (Math:50; Phys:28). Although, I also find the Warwick course appealing because it seems to give the opportunity to choose a career as a Physicist, a Mathematician or in business/financial sector/etc. Is this assumption correct? What do you think the best choice would be, considering both academic level and career opportunities?
