Course summary

Apply the full breadth of physics to a wide range of astrophysical phenomena, including physics at its most extreme and the evolution of the Universe.

This course will provide you with a solid grounding in physics, along with in-depth specialist knowledge of astrophysics. You’ll explore a range of astrophysical phenomena, including star formation, black hole growth and the expansion of the Universe.

You’ll learn how to combine evidence from stellar and extragalactic astronomy to build consistent theoretical models of the evolution of galaxies. There will also be opportunities for you to carry out both observational and computational astrophysics projects.

Topics covered include exoplanets, galaxies, cosmology, stars and stellar evolution, general relativity and high energy astrophysics.

Prepare for your future

A physics degree will enable you to work within a wide range of careers such as scientific research and development, engineering, finance, IT, telecommunications or renewable energies. Many graduates also go on to postgraduate study in preparation for academic or industry-based research careers.
