Hello everyone, this is my first post on the student room. I am starting at sixth form in September and would really like to take an astronomy course online alongside my 3 a levels. Even if it's just an as level course. I have no idea if it exists however I know that there is a GCSE course. Thank you!

There isn’t an as or A level

There are short courses you could attend eg at the royal observatory
The open university has a number of options for part time study as well as free resources

The GCSE is an interesting course that covers stuff which isn't in the physics A level

Mooc providers run free online astronomy courses e.g. https://www.edx.org/learn/astronomy

local astronomy groups might run public lectures by academics

if you're in London, Gresham college runs some astronomy lectures (among other subects) https://www.gresham.ac.uk/attend/

IOP and RAS do some astronomy events (IOP website seems to be having maintainance)
