Council of the University

Establishment of the degree of Master of Mathematics and Physics

Corrigendum

When the changes in regulations reflecting the establishment of the degree of Master of Mathematics and Physics were published on 25 April and 2 May, the word 'Philosophy' was erroneously used in place of 'Physics'.

In regulation 2.1 of Council Regulations 22 of 2002, delete both references to 'Mathematics and Philosophy, Master of Mathematics and Philosophy' and replace with references to 'Mathematics and Philosophy, Master of Mathematics and Physics'.
