The Department of Astronomy and Theoretical Physics, together with the Department of Physics, offer education in astronomy and physics at the bachelor's and master's levels, as well as dedicated PhD programmes. 

The bachelor's programmes lead to a bachelor of science degree after three years of study (180 ECTS credits). A master's degree requires an additional two years of astronomy or physics studies on one of our master's programmes, including a master's project of 30 or 60 credits.

General information for new students can be found on the Department of Physics page for new students.

The PhD programmes at the Department of Astronomy and Theoretical Physics are carried out within one of the research groups and normally comprises four years of studies and research work.
