Course summary

At Keele University, we’re proud to be consistently ranked in the Top 3 UK universities for student satisfaction, which is testimony to the safe, supportive and welcoming campus we hope you’ll soon call home.Astrophysicists seek to understand the universe, from its smallest constituents to the largest possible scales. The language of the universe is physics and mathematics; Physics with Astrophysics students study these, along with computational and statistical techniques, and apply their skills to tackling problems as diverse as stellar interiors, galaxies, black holes and the evolution of the universe itself. You will gain an understanding of the fundamentals of physics and the essential ability to plan investigations, analyse results and present your work. Regular laboratory sessions, including access to our on-campus observatory, enable you to investigate unfamiliar phenomena and develop valuable transferable skills such as scientific writing and programming. We operate an open-door policy giving excellent and flexible access to staff in seeking advice and feedback. Our Single Honours programme builds upon, and then goes beyond, the core topics defined by the UK Institute of Physics to provide breadth of study, modules informed by the international research of our astrophysics staff, with additional emphasis on mathematics and computing as tools for (astro)physical problem-solving.A Physics with Astrophysics degree from Keele will prepare you for many different careers. Employers value numerate, versatile graduates who can analyse, investigate and communicate. You could take up roles as a research scientist, medical physicist or enter the space, telecommunications or nuclear industries. Or instead, you may find employment that is not directly related to physics or astrophysics, such as a science writer, chartered accountant or IT consultant. Single Honours Physics with Astrophysics is also ideal preparation for further study; many of our graduates go on to (astro)physics-related master’s degrees or perform research at a doctoral level.
