External Topics
Topics from another School / Department: While it is generally not recommended, occasionally, a student may want to select a topic external to the School of Physics and Astronomy (for example, from Mathematics). If you wish to do this, check the box below, and select less topics from above (depending on the number of external topics you are thinking of selecting) - note: it would be very unusual to be allowed to do more than one external topic. To proceed with this option will require discussion with, and approval from, the Honours Coordinator.
