The planetarium is improving. We're refitting the planetarium and it will be closed from Monday 16 - Friday 20 April. It re-opens to the public on Saturday 21 April. See what's on and choose your next space adventure

We offer a range of astronomy courses tailored to the needs of individuals with differing levels of knowledge, from short introductory courses to one year courses for those keen to pursue their studies in more detail to two year courses for budding astrophysicists.

Our students get to study in a unique environment supported by a range of equally unique resources, including expert tutors, a state of the art digital planetarium and the country’s largest lensed telescope.
