All of these courses require you either to have been given a one-time enrolment key or to have been properly listed in Websurf as attending the course (if you are a student).
Astronomy 345HM presents an integrated and in-depth overview of the physical universe. Mathematical methods and physical concepts are harnessed to yield a quantitative description of modern astrophysics. Training and experience in the practice of astronomical observation and data reduction are also given.
- The Physics 3 class is the first Honours year leading to a 4 year BSc Honours degree or a 4/5 year MSci degree, for a range of Single, Joint, and Combined Honours degree courses. As such, these courses aim to provide a major part of the general and professional education of physicists and those who work in related disciplines.

Physics 4/5 aims to provide a major part of the general and professional education of physicists and those who work in related disciplines. The courses aim to prepare a student to contribute to the many different areas of industry, commerce, education and research that rely on a knowledge of physics, its techniques and its applications. Recognising that new knowledge and developments in physics and its applications will occur throughout a person's professional lifetime, the courses particularly seek to provide a fundamental training in basic principles. From these basic principles our graduates can develop specialised abilities in their immediate post-graduate careers, and also the ability to respond to new concepts and techniques throughout their careers.
Induction for Physics 4 took place on 17 September 2012 from 11:00-12:00 in Room 320 of the Kelvin Building
Induction for Physics 5 and Exchange students took place on 17 September 2012 from 12:00-13:00 in Room 320 of the Kelvin Building
The Physics Honours Projects allows students to carry out a physics research project in collaboration with a partner under the supervision of a member of staff, give a short talk on the topic, write a report and present a poster of the work carried out.
The Physics/Astronomy M Projects are long projects lasting 20 weeks and is a 40 credit course offered during 5th year.
The BSc Projects are offered to Physics 4H students and are worth 30 credits for Single Honours students and 20 credits for Combined Honours students. There is also a 20 credit MLab Project for 4th year MSci Single Honours students and a 20 credit project for Theoretical Physics students.
Exchange students can choose to perform M Projects or BSc projects (or any flexible combination between them).
- Peer Tutorials -- Honours students tutoring first and second year undergraduates.
