Physics is the most fundamental of all sciences. It observes and explores the physical laws and principles that govern the nature of the universe. Astrophysics encompasses study of the exciting arena of planets, stars and galaxies. This course allows you to explore astrophysics from your very first week.
On this course, you’ll develop thorough knowledge of core physics, from thermodynamics to quantum physics. You’ll also study a broad range of astrophysics topics, such as star and planet formation, stellar structure and evolution, and cosmology.
During your project work you will have access to data from some of the world's premier telescopes, such as the Very Large Array, the Atacama Large Millimetre Array and the Very Large Telescope.
You’ll learn advanced astrophysics observational techniques of spectroscopy and interferometry, as well as utilizing large astronomical databases.
For your final year project, you’ll work as part of an internationally recognised research team and get involved in real research.
You will have the opportunity to apply for a funded summer research placement at the end of year two, which will provide eight weeks’ paid employment actively pursuing research in physics.
You’ll have access to our specialist teaching and laboratory facilities.
