Astronomy and Astrophysics courses

Building on our 20 years of experience delivering distance learning courses to astronomy students around the world we are pleased to offer a range of courses designed to take advantage of the modern internet and recent developments in astronomy.

These courses are written and supported by professional astronomers here at the Astrophysics Research Institute of Liverpool John Moores University and can be taken by students worldwide. These are purely distance learning courses which do not require any on-site classes, and are delivered by a combination of online course notes and video lectures.


MSc Course

We now offer a part-time MSc course, which is suitable for students who already have an undergraduate degree in a maths or science subject.

Short Courses

Our short Distance Learning courses are currently not being run. We hope to have them back again when we have sufficient staff to run them, but at them moment we do not have a timescale for that.
