Astronomy Research (MSc)

Programme structure

The Astronomy Research specialisation includes various advanced astronomy courses that you can choose from each year.

Programme outline

The Astronomy Research master’s curriculum consists of one year of course work, and two significantly different research projects supervised by different staff members. The First Research Project will typically start early in the first year. You conduct your Master’s Research Project concluded by the master’s thesis during the second year.  Courses and research projects run simultaneously. This way, you can directly apply your experience and knowledge from research in courses and vice versa.
