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'm a computer engineer for 20 years but my true vocation is astronomy and astrophysics.

I'm thinking to start next autumn astrophysics degree at the university but I don't know if I need to do a transition year because I don't remember a lot of things of mathematics and physics that I have studied 20 years ago.

I'm also interested in studying mathematics at the university also, so I've thought that I can start first studying mathematics 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 first mathematics and then physics.

    $\begingroup$ There is no correct answer, it depends on your circumstances. Universities have admission tutors who's job is to advise on the requirements of the course. Contact the university. $\endgroup$ – James K Apr 4 '18 at 17:13
