Course summary

In this degree programme the study of physics is particularly focused on astrophysical phenomena: from stars and planets to galaxies and cosmology.

Astrophysics provides a natural laboratory in which to explore the laws of physics, and in certain astrophysical objects: such as pulsars, quasars and black holes; to test those laws under extreme conditions. Astronomy lectures are complemented by our observatory, planetarium and telescope facilities.
