Course summary

Explore the extragalactic with our world-leading faculty. Our research interests focus on:

  • testing cosmological models
  • physics of the early universe
  • large-scale structure: galaxy surveys and numerical simulations
  • very high-redshift galaxies and reionisation
  • galaxy formation and evolution.

Supercomputers and overseas telescopes – whether you’re a theoretical astronomer or work on an observational project, you’ll have access to world-leading facilities, international collaborations and a full combination of theoretical, numerical and observational techniques.

For an MPhil, your work is an independent piece of research but in less depth than for a PhD. You’ll graduate with the degree title Master of Philosophy. You might be able to change to a PhD while you study for an MPhil.
