Astronomy Seminars: these take place on Fridays at 2:30pm during term time. The seminars cover a wide range of topics of current astronomical and astrophysical interest. Full-time MSc students are strongly encouraged to attend; part-time students are welcome to attend if their schedules permit. Astronomy Seminars do not take place on the second Friday of the month (October - May) because of Royal Astronomical Society meetings on those days. See here for a list of upcoming seminars.

Postgraduate Astronomy Seminar: this takes place at 4pm on Fridays after the main Astronomy seminar, and is run and attended by PhD students in the Astronomy Unit; MSc students are very welcome to attend.

London Cosmology and Relativity Seminar: this takes place on Wednesdays at 3:30pm during term time. This is a technical seminar series run by our Relativity and Cosmology group, and is preceded by the cosmology journal club. See here for a list of upcoming seminars.

School of Physics and Astronomy Colloquium: this a forum for high profile speakers to present topics of broad interest to the whole School. The talks can be on cutting edge physics research, but also from other areas of academia related to physics, or from speakers with training in physics but pursuing careers outside academia. See here for a list of upcoming colloquia, including a list of past colloquia dating back to 1965.
