- We loved so much this course that we bring a friend ! This is the best course I ever follow ! The subject is great and the teacher is really good !» (Excellent)
- Very clear lectures, focusing on physical understanding rather than mathematical aptitude.» (Excellent)
- The ectures are very good and the examination gives a very good summarization of who the information from the lectures work on diffrent aspects in the universe.» (Excellent)

14. What should definitely be preserved to next year?

- Everything ! The work group, the lectures, the material, the hot topics, the evaluation, the teacher, everything is perfect !»
- Everything»
- The exam format.»
- The group work was good, it should be preserved. Also, the form of the examination was very nice.»
- The examination allowing an in-depth study of a single topic was good.»
- Everything, especially project work.»
- The examination presentations.»
- the open athmosphere»
- Alessandro :) He is a very motivated and inspiring lecturer.»

15. What should definitely be changed to next year?

- This year, the lecture "Astrophysical dynamics" and "Modern Astrophysics" collide, and we were two folling both courses. Maybe something could be done.»
- Four hours of lectures in a day was difficult, but I do see the logic of the timetabling.»
- nothing really, maybe to not stress up to finish what was planned to give during the lecture. It becomes difficult to follow then as the speeds increases.»
- The presentations can be longer (30 min). Certain questions to the presentators could be sent to the course attendents, wich will make them more active under the presentation. The examiner should recive an e-mail pdf before the presentation and even the course attendents could recive this. All to get mor active course attendents.»

16. Additional comments

- I really enjoyed this course ! This is the best lecture ever ! Thank you and congradulation to Alessandro which did an amazing job with this course ! It is a rare talent to be able to bring physics to life and make physics so clear !! Well done !»
- Alessandro was the best teacher I have ever had on Chalmers. He made me think in a whole new way, and created a fantastic atmosphere during the lectures. Alessandro made very hard things possible to understand, and was never afraid of asking about things I didn"t understand. I have actually never asked so many questions and felt so welcomed than I have been in this course. »
- Some way to prepare better for the other students presentations at the day of the exam would be nice, the discussions would benefit from this. Unfortunately I don"t have any suggestion for the form of this preparation, but it"s worth thinking about.»
- It was a fun course.»
- Last part of course the tempo rised. I think this was a result of many interesting subjects to bring up during lectures, people asking about them and Alessandro getting stressed for lacking of time when trying explain. Therefore he needs to speed up to keep the time schedule. MIght be better to not bring up too many things (even when they are very interesting, as they are), as they become complicated to explain. I would appreciate if all the topics could be explained as in the beginning of the course. Which part I think was better understood and fully followed by everybody. However this forces us as well to study what we do not understand on our own. Which might be a good way of learning.»
- An excellent course even if you thought it would be this way.»
- Thanks for the course!»
