Physics with Astrophysics with Professional Placement - University of Bath

Gain in-depth specialist knowledge of how to apply physics to understand the origins and evolution of the universe. During the course, you'll learn about the fundamental physics describing the intertwining of space, time, matter and energy. You’ll study physical systems under conditions that exceed anything we could conceivably create on Earth, such as extrasolar planets or the extreme end states of stellar evolution. You’ll also learn how to assemble evidence from astronomy to build theoretical models of the cosmos. Topics covered include exoplanets, galaxies, cosmology, stars and stellar evolution, general relativity and high energy astrophysics. The Master of Physics (MPhys) degree gives you the opportunity to enhance and deepen your knowledge compared to BSc courses, particularly in topics at the forefront of research. You’ll study master's level units and carry out a major master's level research project, giving you ideal preparation for postgraduate study or a career in research.
