Course content

Research Strategies:

We pursue leading-edge research
programmes in the observation and
modelling of astronomical objects. These
programmes are aligned with the University's
strategy for research excellence and with the
UK scientific priorities.
The Astrophysics Research Centre studies
the local Universe (our Galaxy and other
nearby galaxies) and makes extensive use
of international 8m-class ground-based and
space-based observing facilities. We also
build specialised instruments to take high
cadence images of the sun and stars. These
programmes are supported by external
grant funding of over £4 million, including
a large STFC Rolling Grant and a European
Community EURYI Award.
