Astrophysics is the application of physics to understanding the Universe at large. Our Physics and Astrophysics programme is for those who are fascinated by astronomy, and are looking for an in-depth treatment that also gives a good grounding in physics, with a correspondingly wide range of employment opportunities after graduation. In addition to a wide variety of lecture courses, highlights of the programme include a special Astro-laboratory in Year 1, and group projects dealing with the nearby and distant Universe in Year 3. The University has a purpose-built Observatory, on the outskirts of the city, equipped with a grating spectrograph and cooled CCD detector. Students use this for their own projects, to study the properties of stars and galaxies.
