Undergraduate Admissions


In the second year, there are 17 lecture courses, and a computational project.

Students decide how many courses to take: unusually (maybe uniquely) there is no fixed number for examination purposes. Students generally study more courses than they prepare for examination, to give themselves a good grounding for the third year.

At the end of the year, there are four three-hour examinations, and reports are submitted for the computational projects course.

Examples of course topics

There are more courses in:

  • abstract algebra
  • analysis
  • mathematical methods.

There are new courses, including:

  • geometry of curved spaces
  • quantum mechanics
  • electromagnetism
  • probability and statistics.
