The Faculty of Mathematical and Physical Sciences
encompasses the logical, experimental and mathematical study of our
Universe. The Faculty is an internationally renowned centre for both theoretical and applied research and a centre of educational excellence.
Front-line research feeds directly into our teaching programmes, and our students benefit from access to first-class laboratory facilities.
The faculty's flagship degree
programme combines science subjects to reflect the high-quality, internationally-leading research undertaken at UCL. Students can investigate a wide range of subjects under guidance from experts in their field.
Find out about the broad range of single-subject science degrees at undergraduate level covering: Chemistry, Earth Sciences, Mathematics, Physics & Astronomy, Science & Technology Studies, Space and Climate Physics, Statistical Science.
The faculty offers a broad range of single-subject science degrees at postgraduate level covering: Chemistry, Earth Sciences, Mathematics, Physics & Astronomy, Science & Technology Studies, Space and Climate Physics, Statistical Science.
Eight colleagues including Matthew Scroggs (UCL Mathematics) and Professor Andrea Sella (UCL Chemistry) have been commended for teaching excellence through UCL’s annual awards which recognise and reward outstanding contributions to the learning experience and success of our students.

How cold can it get? That depends how long you are willing to wait. The third law of thermodynamics, conjectured in 1912 by the Nobel laureate Walter Nernst, states that it takes an infinite time to cool a system to absolute zero – the coldest temperature possible.
