Course summary

Learn to analyse the nature of the universe and model physical systems. Taught by research-led academics, our Astrophysics and Mathematics BSc programme will arm you with the transferable knowledge and skills to follow a variety of career paths. Why choose this course?

  • 15th in the UK for Mathematics (Guardian League Table, 2024)
  • Professional accreditation pathway available in Astrophysics
  • Develop your practical skills in Keele's state-of-the-art Central Science Laboratories (CSL)
  • Tackle an open-ended, research-focused astrophysics project in your final year
Studying a combined honours in astrophysics and mathematics will provide you with a breadth of knowledge and a wide range of skills across two fascinating and deeply interconnected subject areas. In astrophysics you will apply physics to understanding how the universe works and potentially explore questions like 'Is there an Earth-like planet around another star?' 'Is there a black hole at the centre of every galaxy?' And 'Why is the expansion of the Universe accelerating?' The mathematics modules on the programme will carefully explore the core areas of mathematics, including calculus, algebra, probability and analysis. We will train you to think logically, construct rigorous proofs, introduce useful mathematical structures and think in abstract terms. To help develop the skills employers are looking for, you will also learn the programming language Python and understand how mathematics is used in a professional environment.
