Course summary

The MPhys Astrophysics is delivered collaboratively by acclaimed experts from the University of Liverpool and Liverpool John Moores University. An Astrophysics degree has the unique potential to provide students with an understanding of the most up-to-date discoveries in the Universe.
Programme in detail

During the programme, students will be introduced to all aspects of physics and astronomy from quantum mechanics to cosmology. In Year Two, there is a week-long field trip to the Teide Observatory in Tenerife, where students make astronomical measurements at a professional observatory. The two-metre aperture Liverpool Telescope sited on La Palma in the Canaries, which is the largest robotically controlled telescope in the world, will provide you with unique access to observations from a major research facility when you undertake a research project in your final year.

This four-year Astrophysics degree will equip students with skills relevant for further study of the universe at postgraduate research level as well as for jobs in a wide range of careers.

Year abroad

This degree programme now has a Year Abroad option (Astrophysics with a Year Abroad MPhys, UCAS code: F522). The Year Abroad is an incredible new opportunity to spend one academic year at one our partner universities expanding your academic and cultural horizons. You’ll spend this time abroad in between your second and third years of study and your degree will extend by one year.

During the Year Abroad you’ll take a variety of modules. Some modules will be related to the culture, history and society of the country you’re living and others will be discipline-related modules. This mixture means you have a fantastic opportunity to learn in-depth about your host country as well as learn new and exciting knowledge that will complement your degree studies back in Liverpool. Research from Universities UK tells us that students who spend time studying abroad during their degree programme are more likely to be in further education or employment 6 months after graduating, earn higher than average salaries and are more likely to graduate with a 2:1 or First Class degree.
