Astronomy by Distance Learning courses

Building on our 15 years of experience delivering distance learning courses to astronomy students around the world we are pleased to announce the launch of a new suite of courses designed to take advantage of the modern internet and recent developments in astronomy.

These new courses are written and supported by professional astronomers here at the Astrophysics Research Institute of Liverpool John Moores University. These courses are multimedia distance learning courses which do not require any on-site classes, and are delivered by a combination of online course notes and video lectures.

Our courses are suitable for those who do not have any specialist scientific or mathematical background, and are available to residents of any country. 

You can find information on our current courses by clicking on the course title in the menu on the left of this page. If you have any questions, please email us at:
