Astrophysics

If you are interested in using quantitative physical methods to understand the building blocks of the Universe, and already have a good background in OU level 2 maths, physics and astronomy, then this is the module for you. This module focuses on the astrophysics of stars and exoplanets ? examining their properties, structure, evolution and the physical processes that occur within them. The OU's Virtual Learning Environment (VLE) and internet-based resources are used throughout the module. You'll experience real, collaborative astrophysical research, online with a small group of other students, to acquire, reduce, analyse and interpret data.
