Astronomy is one of the most interesting and exciting subjects to study,
and explaining the beauty of the night sky is deeply rewarding.
Being based on a firm mathematical and physics foundation, it prepares a
student for many careers both inside and outside of the field.
UCL gives students an advantage by offering an integrated astronomy and
astrophysics programme, rather than merely extending a basic physics
degree with a few astronomy modules.
Topics such as spectroscopy, thermodynamics and quantum theory are taught in an
astronomical context. One of the key areas that makes UCL stand out is that
in-depth practical work takes place at a telescope at UCLO, breeding a
familiarity with instrumentation and methods.
