About Astrophysics at Liverpool John Moores University

If you are excited by the thought of studying one of the most challenging and fundamental of sciences in one of the best physics departments in the UK, the MPhys Astrophysics degree provides an excellent grounding for a career as a research physicist or astronomer.

You will be taught by world-leading academics and benefit from specialist facilities at both universities, including a purpose-built astrophysics teaching laboratory. You will also have access to a number of observatories so you can perfect your skills in astronomical measurement and experience using state-of-the-art detector technology. In the second year you can spend a week at the Tedie Observatory on Tenerife or alternatively undertake a week-long project at the Astrophysics Research Institute.

In your final year you have access to the largest robotically controlled telescope in the world – LJMU's own two-metre aperture Liverpool Telescope, which is sited on La Palma in the Canary Islands. You will also have the chance to use our own city-centre observatory equipped with a 12-inch computer-controlled telescope.

In Level 4, you will cover core physical and mathematical techniques and the main strands of physics but there is the flexibility to specialise as the course progresses. If, at the end of Level 4, you decide that astrophysics isn't for you, you have the option to transfer to another of our physics programmes.

Notes about fees for this course

The fees quoted are those for the 2018/19 year as information for 2019/20 is not yet available. The Department for Education (DfE) have recently announced that they will be freezing tuition fees for the 2019/20 academic year. However, this is still subject to the normal parliamentary approval. Once 2019/20 fees are confirmed we will update our web pages accordingly.
