Further Astronomy Course
Starting on the 1st February 2017 this six week course is designed for more advanced students. While building on the foundation provided by the introductory course you do not need to have completed this course to take part but a basic understanding of astronomy is assumed. The aim of the course is to provide a good overview of modern astronomy and astrophysics. It will discuss how modern science is applied to developing our understanding of a wide range of astronomical objects and other, more exotic astrophysical phenomena, and how these fit together into processes currently believed to be operating in the Universe. There are limited spaces available so book early to avoid disappointment.
