Measurements flow in every day from satellites in space and from observatories all over the world. Students in the MSc in Astronomy programme are actively involved in research and in the discussion of new discoveries and theories. Students in the programme study new planets orbiting other stars, examine the structure and development of the stars through seismological studies, and explore the earliest stages of the development of the universe, working with computer modelling or measurements from state-of-the-art telescopes and satellites.
FOCUS ON RESEARCH
Teaching in the Astronomy programme is greatly influenced by research, both in the courses and in the thesis work, as the lecturers are active researchers. In this context students benefit from the down-to-earth, informal relationship between faculty and students. Each student is associated with a group of researchers for thesis work in year two, and there is wide scope for specialisation, both within the Department of Physics and Astronomy and (thanks to the department’s close collaboration) with researchers from the European Southern Observatory, the European Space Agency, and NASA.
The following Bachelor’s degrees qualify students for admission to the Master’s degree programme in Astronomy:
- A Bachelor of Science degree in Physics from Aarhus University, the University of Southern Denmark or the University of Copenhagen.
The following other degrees can provide admission to the Master’s degree programme in Astronomy.
- Another Bachelor of Science degree with subject components in Physics and Astronomy equaling 60 ECTS credits, as well as basic subject components in Mathematics and Statistics of at least 30 ECTS.
- Other qualifications can provide admission to the Master’s degree programme, provided the university assesses that their level, extent and content correspond to the degrees mentioned above.
Upon admission further requirements regarding composition of the degree programme may be stipulated
