Astronomy course for absolute beginners and led by an engaging tutor from the Royal Observatory Greenwich, the home of time and space.
We offer a wide range of adult courses related to astronomy, from short six-week introductory sessions via one year intermediate courses to modular two year advanced courses.
This six week course is for people with no prior knowledge of astronomy. It offers a basic introduction to the subject from historical, scientific and practical perspective.
Note:- This course will be run online via a Zoom webinar session until the end of 2020. This will be reviewed for courses beginning in and after January 2021 when on-site sessions may resume.
