Course summary

Astronomy is the study of the physical universe, from the Earth and the solar system to galaxies at the edge of the cosmos. Astronomy lectures are complemented by our observatory, planetarium and telescope facilities. You will learn about the latest developments in astrophysics from research leaders. We have close links with the Glasgow Science Centre, home to one of the UK’s best planetariums. Mathematics is a vast and ever-growing subject which incorporates successful explorations of numerical, geometrical and logical relationships. Our ambassador scheme gives students the chance to spend time in schools, experiencing teaching at first hand and developing vital workplace skills.
