Physics is the most fundamental of all sciences. It observes and explores the physical laws and principles that govern the nature of the universe. Astrophysics encompasses study of the exciting arena of planets, stars and galaxies. This course allows you to explore astrophysics from your very first week. On this course, you’ll develop thorough knowledge of core physics, from thermodynamics to quantum physics. You’ll also study a broad range of astrophysics topics, such as high energy astrophysics, stellar structure and evolution, and cosmology. Moreover, on this course you’ll get involved in real research via several routes, such as through our group industrial project module and your final year research project. We offer all students the chance to apply to do a summer research placement, where you’ll work with our researchers and be paid a salary. As well as advancing you as a physicist, these opportunities allow you to develop transferable skills that can help you achieve your aspirations.
