I don't know where to ask this question and I have found this site. If this is not the right place to ask it, please tell me and I will delete it.
I've been a computer engineer for 20 years but my true vocation is astronomy and astrophysics.
This autumn I'm thinking to start an astrophysics degree but I don't know if I need to do a transition year because I don't remember a lot of the mathematics and physics that I studied 20 years ago.
I'm interested in studying mathematics at university also, so I thought that I could start off studying mathematics first and then physics.
What do you think?
I ask it because physics has a lot mathematics and I don't know if it is better to study mathematics first and then physics.
In a nutshell:
I'm a computer engineer that has ended his studies twenty years ago (I don't remember a lot of things about mathematics and physics) and I want to learn astrophysics. Do I need a transition year or maybe I can start studying mathematics (that is something that I want to do) first and then astrophysics?
