Astrophysics is a branch of space science that explains the birth, life and death of massive objects in the universe by applying the laws of physics, creating physical theories for the small to medium sized structures in the universe.
Modules and topics covered on a space science and astrophysics programme will include the life cycles of stars, galaxy clusters and dark energy and matter cosmology, and students will benefit from learning from internationally renowned teachers in the areas of astronomy. As a student on a UK astronomy, space science or astrophysics course, you will also have access to state-of-the-art observatory equipment, including solar and video telescopes.
Astrophysics and space science graduates find employment opportunities in highly valued sectors such as government space agencies, electronics, environment, teaching, aerospace, civil services, energy and other science related fields. Graduates may also go on to pursue research in physics, astrophysics, cosmology and space industry.
Please note that entry requirements vary for each UK university.

My consultant was very helpful and motivating. She helped me every step of the way, even when the deadline was so close. I feel I could not have done it without her. I'd highly recommend this service to any and all of my many friends interested.
