What are gravitational waves and why are they important? What can neutrinos and other particles from space tell us about our cosmic surroundings? While telescopes measuring light in its various forms are the main tools of the astronomer, we do have some other ways of learning about what is out there in the Universe. Join us to find out what these methods have told us so far, and what the future holds for 'non-electromagnetic' (light-based) astronomy.


Unless otherwise stated, teaching and assessment for ICE courses are in English. Students whose first language is not English should refer to the Competence in the English Language Policy for further guidance.

Printable versions of our brochures are available to download from the Institute Publications page.
