A degree in Physics with Astronomy gives students a wide appreciation of the varied astronomical phenomena in the physical Universe.
From the formation, evolution and deaths of stars – involving planetary systems, nucleosynthesis and supernovae – through structure of galaxies to the evolution of the Universe itself, the degree structure introduces the physics involved in the cosmos. At the end of Year Two the week-long field trip to the Teide Observatory in Tenerife introduces students to professional observatories. Delivered in conjunction with the Astrophysics Research Institute at Liverpool John Moores University, the three-year Physics and Astronomy degree will equip students with skills relevant for jobs in a wide range of careers, from education, research, finance and the city to industry.

I was so surprised by my time in Liverpool! I wasn’t expecting such a culturally vibrant and exciting city! I’m a theatre nut, so having the Everyman on my doorstep was an incredible opportunity to learn and expand my horizons. The scousers are also incredibly warm and friendly, and between the vast numbers of students and locals you’ll make loads of new friends. The course was hugely enjoyable, with varied and dynamic lecturers who are constantly pushing you academically, and the SU helps students out in a myriad of ways.
