About

Explore cosmology and astrophysics at an advanced level, with an emphasis on theoretical cosmology. At University of Sussex our focus is on theoretical and numerical Cosmology in the pre- and post-recombination universe.

Overview

About this Degree

This Cosmology course at University of Sussex is one of only two MScs in this subject area in the UK. It’s for you if you have graduated from a physics- or applied mathematics-based degree with a substantial physics component and wish to learn how to apply your knowledge to cosmology.
