Course Summary

Our Physics with Astrophysics programmes focus on the core of mainstream physics, but also provide a balanced understanding of modern observational and theoretical astrophysics, from planets and stars to galaxies and cosmology. You will apply the fundamental laws of physics to some of the most remarkable environments in the universe. Observational astrophysics is taught using our recently upgraded teaching observatory.Our BSc degrees are three-year programmes that give you a sound education in physics and astrophysics, and lead on to a wide variety of careers. The four-year MPhys degrees take you further and give you a great opportunity to undertake research in our world-leading astrophysics group. Both the BSc projects, and the PhD-style MPhys research projects are often based on data from world-class ground and space-based facilities and state-of-the-art computational codes for theoretical astrophysics.Normally students can transfer between any of the programmes during the first year. All our programmes can lead naturally on to PhD-level research or towards a more specialised qualification such as an MSc, and all are accredited by the Institute of Physics.
