Course summary

Astrophysics applies physics and mathematics to understanding astronomical objects such as planets, stars and galaxies, and to the universe as a whole.Understanding the origin and evolution of the universe is one of the most exciting and challenging problems in modern science. In this programme you’ll use practical and theoretical approaches to explore the evolution and properties of astrophysical systems. You’ll apply the methods used by astronomers to determine the composition and distance of other stars and galaxies. And you’ll develop an understanding of the role played by dark matter and dark energy in the large-scale structure of the universe and its accelerating expansion. Specialist modules focus on cosmology, galaxies, stars and planetary systems and are taught by active researchers in those fields. Extra option modules provide scope for you to explore topics beyond the core syllabus, providing you with a rounded physics education with a specialist focus. You’ll develop practical skills in lab work and programming that can be applied in commerce, industry or research.In your final year, you’ll further develop your own interests through the completion of an independent research project, supervised by one of the School’s astrophysicists.
