Starting Astrophysics degree this year. Advice.

  1. Apr 5, 2012 #1
    Hi everyone,

    I've recently accepted an offer to study astrophysics at Hertfordshire starting this September, obviously I'm excited, but after working for a few years in I.T then going back to college this year and starting university next year when I'll be nearly 22, I'm also in need of advice. Especially since I'll be moving 250+ miles to study there.

    Is there any advice anyone could give me on starting my degree?
    Any recommended reading lists that you lot could help me with?

    ANY advice would be very much appreciated.
    Thanks in advance.

    I self taught AS level physics and math curriculum and I'm currently doing a 1 year access course with chemistry, physics, math and further math A level equivalent.

    Not as much as most people, as like I said, when I left school I went into I.T and did numerous qualifications that sector and worked there until recently.
