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. 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.
