About

If you're ready to take your knowledge and interest in Cosmology and Astrophysics into a postgraduate research degree, there's no better place than Portsmouth.

Overview

The University's Institute of Cosmology and Gravitation (ICG) – one of the leading cosmology and astrophysics centres in the UK. We're active participants in a wide range of international collaborations, including the Dark Energy Survey (DES), the Laser Interferometer Gravitational-Wave Observatory (LIGO), the Dark Energy Spectroscopic Instrument (DESI), the Sloan Digital Sky Survey (SDSS-IV) and Euclid.

The ICG is also a member of the SouthEast Physics Network (SEPNet), a consortium of nine world-class universities in the southeast of England. Our post-graduate students have the opportunity to engage with the SEPNet Graduate Network (GRADNet). By channelling this broad research expertise into one central, combined resource, GRADNet provides a wide range of postgraduate training opportunities, including specialised schools and student-led workshops and conferences.
