A flexible programme, ideal for the keen astrophysicist who wants to carry on studying other areas of physics.
In the first year you'll build a solid foundation in theoretical and experimental physics. You'll take core astrophysics modules over the second and third years, from a list including cosmology, planetary systems, stars and the physics of galaxies.
You're free to take your study of astrophysics further, but can also choose modules reflecting the School's full range of expertise across physics and astronomy – mix and match to suit your aims and interests. You'll be taught by active researchers in these fields, giving you unique insights into higher-level topics.
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 an independent research project, supervised by one of the School's astrophysicists.
Electric and Magnetic Fields
Mathematical Techniques 1
Mathematical Techniques 2
Professional Skills for Scientists (including introduction to programming)
Introduction to Energy and Environmental Physics
Assessment depends on the nature of the work being carried out. For example, if the module involves practical work only, the assessment will be based on laboratory reports. For non-practical modules you may be assessed by weekly coursework, termly assignments and an end-of-year examination.
