Physics and Astrophysics (TR071)

Students take the Science course in first and second years, choosing Physics and Mathematics as two of their three options. The Physics course in these freshman years includes introductory Astrophysics lectures. In the final two (sophister) years students take a variety of specialist Astrophysics courses and core Physics courses. Astrophysics projects are offered in the final year, though the School does not guarantee to provide one for every student taking Astrophysics.
