Summer 2019 graduate, Tomáš Šoltinský, 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).
