We are all interested in astronomy, which is really why we are here on this website! And yes, we have always wanted to learn more, but either it wasn’t the right time, or there were other commitments or it was too far … or all of the above. Now, Dubai Astronomy Group is bringing you a basic crash course of astronomy to the comfort of your home.
You can complete the program anytime within one year’s time at which point we will issue you a form of assessment that will show you more than anyone else where you stand. Please note that this is not a test or an examination and we encourage you to review the videos if you get stuck somewhere in the assessment. The type of assessment will be up to you to choose (you can find the 4 types of assessment below). Once you have cleared the assessment and are satisfied with your progress, Dubai Astronomy Group will issue you a certificate acknowledging the successful completion of the Astronomy Course.
