An Astrophysics degree has the unique potential to provide students with an understanding of the most up-to-date discoveries in the Universe. During the programme, students will be introduced to all aspects of physics and astronomy from quantum mechanics to cosmology. In Year Two, there is a week-long field trip to the Teide Observatory in Tenerife, where students make astronomical measurements at a professional observatory. Offered in conjunction with the Astrophysics Research Institute at Liverpool John Moores University, this four-year degree will equip students with skills relevant for further study of the universe at postgraduate research level as well as for jobs in a wide range of careers. This programme is available with a Year in China. The Year in China allows undergraduate students the opportunity to spend one year at our joint venture, Xi'an Jiaotong-Liverpool University (XJTLU), following XJTLU's BA China Studies degree classes. XJTLU is a fully English-speaking university, located in Suzhou. If you wish to study this programme with a Year in China please put the option code YC in the Further Choices section of your UCAS application form.
