Astronomy and Physics (double bachelor)

Naast de dubbele bacheloropleiding Sterrenkunde en Natuurkunde bestaan er drie andere mogelijkheden :

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.
