SAAO - South African Astronomical Observatory

Introductory Astronomy Course

A part of the Southern African Large Telescope (SALT) project is the Collateral Benefits Plan which aims to maximise the benefits from the investment of public funds. A part of this plan is Educational Empowerment.

The University of Central Lancashire, as one of the SALT partners, is offering an introductory correspondence (distance learning) course in astronomy aimed at non-specialists, especially educators, and requires no prior knowledge of astronomy, but some school mathematics and physical science would help.
