Course description

The Cosmology Diploma Course begins with a definition of the subject’s parameters, its history, impact, and the different types of cosmology - physical, religious, metaphysical and esoteric.

You’ll explore cosmological observations - such as the cosmic microwave background, redshift surveys, gravitational wave observations, neutrino observations and dark matter sea. The course discusses inflation and the very early universe - delving into the flatness problem, the horizon problem, the monopole problem, the inflation solution and the physics of inflation. It also covers visible matter, dark matter in galaxies, and gravitational lensing, and explains what dark matter is.

Through studying the Cosmology Diploma Course, you’ll discover several cosmological theories that have been developed throughout history. These include the Copernican universe, cartesian universe, Anaxagorian universe, atomist universe, the partially heliocentric universe and oscillating universe theories.

We consider the various Big Bang models, with a look at the initial hypotheses of the Friedman model, the standard model, parametric tests, paradoxes of the standard model and non-standard models.

The Cosmology Diploma Course concludes with a look at fractal models - fractal geometry, fractal structures, multifractal properties of luminous matter distribution, and Newtonian fractal models.

By studying this course, you will:

  • Become familiar with various types of cosmology and the subject’s history
  • Gain a greater understanding of the Universe
  • Understand theories that try to explain the origins of the universe
  • Learn about matter and the physics used to express the universe

Outcome / Qualification etc.

The Cosmology Diploma Course will take you up to 150 hours to complete, working from home. There is no time limit for completing this course, it can be studied in your own time at your own pace.

This is a Level 3 course and will give you 150 CPD (Continued Professional Development) points.

Upon completion of your course assessments, you receive 2 certificates. A certificate from the Centre of Excellence and a CPD certificate displaying the number of CPD points earned from the course.

This course is endorsed by the Quality Licence Scheme. Therefore, upon successful completion of this course, learners can also receive a certificate of achievement from Quality Licence Scheme and a Learner Unit Summary, which lists the details of all the units the learner has completed as part of the course. (This certificate is optional and costs an additional £25).

The Quality Licence Scheme is part of the Skills and Education Group, a charitable organisation that unites education and skills-orientated organisations that share similar values and objectives. With more than 100 years of collective experience, the Skills and Education Group’s strategic partnerships create opportunities to inform, influence and represent the wider education and skills sector.

The Skills and Education Group also includes two nationally recognised awarding organisations; Skills and Education Group Awards and Skills and Education Group Access. Through their awarding organisations they have developed a reputation for providing high-quality qualifications and assessments for the education and skills sector. They are committed to helping employers, organisations and learners cultivate the relevant skills for learning, skills for employment, and skills for life.

Their knowledge and experience of working within the awarding sector enables them to work with training providers, through the Quality Licence Scheme, to help them develop high-quality courses and/or training programmes for the non-regulated market.
