Astronomy and Astrophysics Postgraduate Courses

The astronomy postgraduate course is for first year PhD students in the Centre for Extragalactic Astronomy, the Institute for Computational Cosmology and for students from the Centre for Doctoral Training in Data Intensive Science who aim to pursue astronomy research projects. The course runs over the first two terms of the year. The astronomy postgraduate course comprises a broad range of (1) practically orientated research-skill workshops, including (amongst others) statistics, programming, data reduction, and high-performance computing, and (2) scientific lectures. The lecture series have been chosen to cover the range of astronomical research undertaken in Durham and for the most part their focus is the research in which the lecturer is currently involved.
