Study Details

PG Dip 2 years Part-time, distance learning

***Please note that this programme requires sufficient student numbers to run each year.***

This is a part-time, postgraduate-level programme delivered wholly online in a fully-supported learning environment. This programme will offer home astronomers, who may have graduated in subjects other than physics, the opportunity to gain a formal postgraduate qualification in Astronomy and Astrophysics, and is designed to give students a robust and up-to-date background in these areas. Over the course of two years, we will explore the solar system, stellar physics, infra-red, radio and high energy astronomy, as well as discussing the foundations of cosmology.

Entry Requirements

Students will be expected to hold a Bachelor's Degree in a related subject area. CLL will also favourably consider any student previously awarded a BA/BSc in any subject, and with evidence of recent HE level study. Previous maths skills, to A-Level or equivalent standard, are essential.
If you are a non-native English speaking applicant you must provide evidence of your English language ability. You need to show enough fluency in all aspects of English (reading, writing, speaking and listening) to the required level of the course you're applying to.
