Bachelor of Science (Space Science and Astrophysics)

The University of Adelaide

Type of institution: University/Higher Education Institution
Level: Undergraduate
CRICOS: 00123M

Space science and astrophysics explores the universe from the upper atmosphere of the earth to the most distant regions. This underpins much of the academic and technological research into astronomy, studies of the solar system and the practical use of space. It is important in improving knowledge of the universe as a whole, and in enabling us to understand the environment within which space vehicles, and planet earth, must operate.


The program consists of core training in the disciplines of astronomy and space science, with a strong emphasis on physics. Students are given the flexibility to supplement this core with their choice of other science, geoscience, and mathematically based work. They will have direct exposure to professionals in the fields of space science and astrophysics, which enables them to form professional mentoring relationships. There are also opportunities to take part in project work with established scientists in the field.
