For Astrophysical Science concentrators interested in a semester abroad, the department is supportive and helps in recommending places that excel in Astronomy. Some astrophysics students have studied in the UK (Cambridge, Oxford, London), Germany, Chile, and in other countries. The department helps interested students with proper course selection as well as with independent research project selection.
Although most concentrators prefer to spend their academic semesters at Princeton to benefit from all the exciting opportunities the Astrophysical Sciences Department offers, students often do summer research internships at other places (e.g. Harvard, University of Hawaii, Arizona, California, Europe)--in addition to doing internships here at Princeton.
The Astrophysical Sciences Departmental Representative is always available to consult with interested students regarding the possibilities and best options for study or internships abroad.
In recent years, Astrophysical Science concentrators have studied abroad through the following program:
