Physics-with-Astronomy (M.Phys): a 4 year course with 7 astronomy options, a 3 month astronomy dissertation and a 6 month astronomy project. In addition, there is a 2 week field trip to the island of Tenerife. A 100 pound contribution towards the cost of the field trip is required.
Astrophysics with a year abroad (M.Phys): This is the same as the above MPhys programme BUT with the 4th year spent at the SAO (a member of the Harvard/Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics) in the United States doing Astrophysics Research. A financial bursary for the year abroad is provided.
