Lund Observatory is a part of the Department of Astronomy and Theoretical Physics. Astronomers at Lund Observatory focus their research on planets and stars in our Galaxy. The astronomers here are involved in space missions, designing new instrumentation for world class telescopes, as well as simulating the motion of stars in the galaxy, the birth of new planetary systems and much more.
Once you decide to join us, to study astronomy and hopefully pursue a career as an astronomer, you start by enrolling to the Bachelor programme in astronomy and astrophysics. After three years of studies you will have gained the tools that you need to understand both physics and astronomy, and you will be rewarded with a Bachelor of Science degree.
If you have already received (or are about to receive) your Bachelor degree, you can apply for entry into our Master program in astrophysics. The Master program takes two years and includes both courses and thesis work. With a Master of Science degree from Lund University you are fully qualified and ready to apply for a PhD position either here or at other institutions.
The Department of Astronomy and Theoretical physics offers both basic and more advanced courses in a wide range of subjects. Here you can find the complete list, information on when the course is given and what the prerequisites are.
