**1**

Sem 1 - Physics

Sem 2 - Calculus 1, Mechanics, Electromagnetism and Thermodynamics

Sem 3 - Calculus 2, Materials and Thermal Physics, Optics and Radiation Physics

Sem 4 - Mathematics for Physicists, Electromagnetics and Quantum Physics

Sem 5 - Quantum and Statistical Physics, Applied Physics

Sem 6 - Photonics and Nuclear Physics, Solid State Physics

Pros: Convenient (transport + already been there for a couple of years), more likely to have a job in science when I graduate

Cons: I'm not sure if you can minor in math because it's a different dept, the course seems pretty half-***ed

**2**

Sem 1 - Physics 1, Calculus 2*

Sem 2 - Physics 2, Linear Algebra

Sem 3 - Quantum Mechanics and Special Relativity, Thermal and Classical Physics, Vector Calculus

Sem 4 - Electromagnetism and Optics, Real Analysis with Applications

Sem 5 - Quantum Physics, Electrodynamics, Complex Analysis

Sem 6 - Statistical Physics, Physics Lab A

* or Calculus 1 depending on your HSC score

Pros: research focused

Cons: Not as close to as I'd like, hey require you to take one extra subject which isn't related to your course, so nothing science-related (IMO, a waste of time)

Assuming I do well, I intend on pursuing a Master's after I graduate at the second Uni (or interstate) and later down the track, maybe a PhD as I'm interested in doing research

So basically, does it matter which of the two I go to for my undergraduate degree?
