UCL Mathematical & Physical Sciences


About the faculty

Encompassing the logical, experimental and mathematical study of our universe, UCL Faculty of Mathematical & Physical Sciences consists of departments highly rated for research excellence. 

The faculty also provides a base for a number of research centres and institutes: these facilitate in-depth and interdisciplinary research through collaboration between experts within MAPS, and in related areas in Engineering Sciences and Life Sciences.

In addition, the faculty has its own interdepartmental undergraduate degree programme: Natural Sciences.

Front-line research feeds directly into our teaching programmes, and our students benefit from access to first-class laboratory facilities. All departments in the faculty are involved in teaching. The faculty offers an array of three-year BSc and four-year Masters-level MSci degrees in emerging as well as more traditional academic areas.  

For graduate students, the faculty offers programmes ranging from one-year taught MSc degrees, through MRes (research masters) to 3-4 year PhD and EngD doctoral research degrees.

The faculty is part of the BEAMS School, alongside the Bartlett Faculty of the Built Environment and the Faculty of Engineering Sciences.
