The MSc in Astrophysics is a one-year taught programme run by the School of Physics and Astronomy. The programme is intended to provide an entry route to astrophysics research and potentially PhD programmes for students who have taken an undergraduate BSc degree in physics, mathematics or an equivalent cognate discipline.
- Students are able and encouraged to use the University Observatory and the James Gregory Telescope, the largest working optical telescope in the UK.
- Students may also have the opportunity to take part in a remote observing trip at the Teide Observatory on Tenerife, Spain (this option is still to be considered).
- The programme prepares students to undertake astrophysical research at PhD level.
- Modules provide transferable skills which enhance employability in and out of academia.
