Physics with Astronomy BSc (Hons)

You will be taught by world-leading academics and benefit from specialist facilities at both universities, including a purpose-built astrophysics teaching laboratory. You will also have access to a number of observatories so you can perfect your skills in astronomical measurement and experience using state-of-the-art detector technology.

In the second year you can spend a week at the Izana Observatory on Tenerife or alternatively undertake a week-long project at the Astrophysics Research Institute.

In your final year you have access to the largest robotically controlled telescope in the world – LJMU’s own two-metre aperture Liverpool Telescope, which is sited on La Palma in the Canary Islands. You will also have the chance to use our own city-centre observatory equipped with a 12-inch computer controlled telescope.

In Level 4, you will cover core physical and mathematical techniques and the main strands of physics, but there is the flexibility to specialise as the course progresses. If, at the end of Level 4, you decide that astronomy isn’t for you, you have the option to transfer to another of our physics programmes. You can also transfer to the four year MPhys at the end of Level 5.
