Students must take a total of 60 ECTS only (Mathematics and Physics combined). ECTS may be split 30:30, 35:25 or 25:35 between Mathematics and Physics modules. A cross-faculty broad curriculum module may be substituted for a 5 ECTS option module in either Mathematics or Physics (but not both). Students may choose to do a project in Mathematics (which counts 10 credits). Unless indicated Mathematics modules are 5 ECTS units.

All module choices are subject to them being possible within the timetable.
