Winter school

Australian and New Zealand undergraduate students have the opportunity to participate in exciting science at the ANU Research School of Astronomy and Astrophysics (RSAA) Winter School. During the week-long workshop, students will experience cutting edge research and take part in scientific observations on some of Australia’s most advanced telescopes.

The Winter School will be held over seven action packed days and includes real astrophysical investigations, special presentations from leading researchers, and night time access to research telescopes to participate in scientific observations. Participants will travel to Australia’s premier optical and radio astronomical observatories and will carry out their own observations using the ANU 2.3m telescope.

Winter School participants will:

  • Learn about stellar physics, planetary science, black holes & cosmology
  • Tour observatories and research telescopes, including a VIP visit of Australia’s largest optical telescope
  • Have the chance to accompany astrophysicists during scientific observations
  • Receive advice on coursework options, internships and scholarships.
