Course summary

**Course Overview**- Do you ever wonder how our universe came to be? Our MPhys Astrophysics Foundation Entry Degree provides you with essential training to help find the answer.- You’ll gain an understanding of how to apply physics to the stars and galaxies which make up our universe, whilst developing skills in scientific methods.- During your MPhys (Hons) Astrophysics course you’ll have access to specialist laboratory facilities for the study of nuclear physics, mechanics, optics, quantum physics, laser physics, spectroscopy and astrophysics. And our Physics Teaching Laboratories have benefitted from an investment of over £40,000 in new equipment.- Foundation Entry degree courses are ideal if you don’t have the necessary formal qualifications to enter directly onto your chosen Honours degree programme. They’re a great stepping stone to a full degree.**Why study with us**- You’ll develop your mathematical skills, and benefit from a state-of-the art learning environment for practical analysis, interpretation and modelling of astronomical data.- You’ll gain excellent observational, mathematical and logical skills as well as problem-solving abilities.- These are all skills that make you particularly attractive to employers, not just in astrophysics, but in a wide range of fields including oil and gas, and medical physics.**Further Information**- Progression onto our MPhys programmes is possible from any of the BSc (Hons) programmes in Physics and Astrophysics, subject to suitable academic performance. An MPhys degree is a highly employable qualification.
