Summer 2019 graduate, Tomáš Šoltinsky, shares his experience studying the MPhys Astrophysics degree, and the amazing opportunities he undertook during his time here.
The reason why I wanted to study in the UK was to explore new opportunities. And guess what? The University of Edinburgh provided so many of them! First of all, I should mention that the MPhys Astrophysics degree is quite flexible. I got to tailor my degree to be more theoretical, experimental or computational, and I got to choose courses ranging from General Relativity to Astrobiology. You can even change your degree like I did. (I started as a Physics student but changed to Astrophysics shortly after).
This summer, a big birthday bash will commence: the 100th birthday of the King’s Buildings campus!
In 1920, King George V laid the foundation stone for the first building, the Joseph Black Building, on what was formerly the site of West Mains Farm. 6th July 2020 sees the start of a year-long celebration of events and activities.
Studying at Kings’ buildings has become synonymous with constantly having to find new ways to get to class through the ever-evolving maze of holes in the ground and paths closed due to construction. But what’s all the construction for?
