This module aims to equip students with a basic understanding of the important physical concepts and techniques involved in astrophysics with an emphasis on how fundamental results can be derived from fairly simple observations. The module consists of three sections: (i) basic concepts, fluxes, temperatures and magnitudes; (ii) astronomical spectroscopy; (iii) gravitational astrophysics.
