Naast de monodisciplinaire bacheloropleiding Sterrenkunde bestaan er drie combinatiestudies:

De combinatiestudies Sterrenkunde en Natuurkunde en Sterrenkunde en Wiskunde duren drie jaar en leveren twee bachelordiploma’s op (een van elke opleiding).
De gecombineerde opleiding Sterrenkunde en Informatica geldt alleen voor het eerste jaar en leidt alleen tot een dubbel propedeusediploma.
