Prospectives Visit 2020

Welcome to the Prospective Grad Student Visit Info Page!

During your virtual visit, you’ll have the chance to meet with students, faculty, staff, and postdocs in the Berkeley Astronomy Department and take a “virtual tour” of campus. Even though we can’t host visitors in person this year, we’ll do our best to help you become familiar with our program. With luck, you’ll see campus in person soon when you start graduate school here next fall!
