Qualification type:
  • MPhys, Full-time , Duration: 4 Years
Course Summary:
Astrophysics has a special flavour. With the arrival of space-based instrumentation and gravitational wave detection, some of the most exciting discoveries in your lifetime are likely to come in astrophysics. However, we can’t conduct experiments on stars or galaxies as they’re too far away and too big. Instead we need to piece together explanations of what we see. This involves understanding the fundamental physics – mechanics, quantum theory, relativity, thermodynamics – and trying to work out what they imply for exoplanets, galaxies, stars and the universe as a whole. The course covers all the important principles of physics together with a structured series of modules on astrophysics. In your first year, you will study the classification of astrophysical objects and how we observe them. During the second year, you will study the solar system and stars in some detail. In the third and fourth years, you can study a range of topics including cosmology, exoplanets, the physics of compact objects (black holes, neutron stars and white dwarfs), general relativity and our Sun.

Located within beautiful woodland scenery, Warwick is often described as being 'in a field'. Although this is true (and you'll appreciate the beautiful streams and open space), the campus is a short bus ride from Coventry city so depending on what you fancy you can really get the best of both worlds. The social events are fantastic once you're on-board, and there's plenty to do if getting drunk midweek isn't your thing.

    Considering that Warwick is a top level school for Economics, studying Econs here is expectedly tough. But great support from the staff and friends make a huge difference! Plus I'm quite career oriented, thus having JP Morgan, McKinsey, PwC all targeting Warwick grads means I come out as a competitive hire.

    Simply: I would rate it 5 stars, see aforementioned reasoning.
