This structured two-year programme offers you the opportunity to learn about the universe and apply your knowledge of physics in a vibrant and fast developing area of science. The first semester is spent on core astronomy courses, including high energy astrophysics and dynamics. In the second semester, you will begin work on a degree project under the supervision of internationally well regarded professors, and this project continues over three semesters. You will also take four more courses broadening your knowledge of the most exciting areas of modern astrophysics such as exoplanets and the early universe.
Although many of our students go on to do a PhD in astronomy, we aim to teach skills that are also of broad use outside academia.
To give an idea of the possibilities open to you, we can mention that some of our former Masterīs students are doing or have done PhDs at the University of Cambridge, Heidelberg University and the European Southern Observatory. Former alumni work at Sony Ericsson, the Swedish Defence Research Institute (FOI), as secondary school teachers and on developing the next generation of instruments to image the retina in the human eye.
