Comments about Master Astrophysics - At the institution - London - Greater London
The aims of the taught postgraduate programme in astrophysics are to provide you with a knowledge and understanding of a broad variety of advanced topics in modern astrophysics. Recent technological and theoretical advances have led to significant leaps in our understanding of the universe. You will have the opportunity to learn about these fascinating discoveries while being taught by researchers who are leaders in their fields.
Entry Requirements For the MSc and Diploma a first or secondclass honours degree (or equivalent) is required in astronomy, physics, or mathematics, or in a subject with substantial mathematics or physics content. The Postgraduate Certificate in Astronomy and Astrophysics may also qualify you for entry on to the MSc.
These programmes are taught by staff in the Astronomy Unit. The programmes offer the opportunity for students with a range of backgrounds and interests to study advanced material from a variety of topics in modern astrophysics. For many students who progress to the MSc from their undergraduate degree, the programme provides a useful stepping-stone to research work. Part-time students include teachers and other professionals who wish to upgrade their qualifications, or those who are studying for their own interest.
You take eight units of modules, which will normally include the following subjects (subject to some changes):
* Stellar Structure and Evolution
* Accretion Processes in Astrophysics
* Relativistic Astrophysics
* Solar System
* Research Methods in Astronomy
* Astrophysical Fluid Dynamics
* The Galaxy
