The course normally extends over three semesters starting in the spring.
In the course you together with your supervisor will choose a problem in astrophysics, which you independently will study and solve. The task can be of a observational, technical or theoretical nature. It should preferentially be linked to a current research project at the department.
In the course you will get the opportunity to apply your previously acquired knowledge on a specific problem and to interpret and rate the results. You will also get training in reporting the problem, methods of investigation and results, both in written and oral form
