UCL London Certificate in Astronomy?

Recommended Posts

You've missed the July 2018 deadline for the 2018/19 session, so you've plenty of time to decide!
If your career path requires this type of education, then why not. If its just for self satisfaction and a certificate, again, why not?

As your're local for London, that doesn't seem unreasonable - though committing to about £30 a week (assuming a bit over 40 weeks of sessions) is quite a bit at the outset. 

There are other astronomy courses that might be worth considering first.

Liverpool JM University run a series of distance learning courses that are shorter and less expensive ( £215 for 5 and 9 month courses). A friend has done an earlier high energy astrophysics course and enjoyed it.

Thanks a lot. This would be purely for educating myself more in the subject out of interest. I work in completely different field full time (although wouldn't mind a career change... as if :P).

The LJMU courses are meant for 'general interest' members of the public so don't have any pre-requisites for maths/science knowledge.
