Physics Experience Week

The Physics Experience Week 2015 on 29th June to 3rd   July 2015 is now closed.  The week is open to individual Year 11/10 students (no more than 2 at the most from any one school) who are committed to studying A-levels in Physics and Mathematics in following years.  We are looking to accept applicants who can communicate their enthusiasm for the subject and can demonstrate from their previous academic studies that they have the ability to apply themselves to university-level physics themes.  A supporting reference from your physics teacher is required.

Please note that we normally have more applications/requests than we can take, and selection is based on the references/information provided on the request form. We expect students accepted onto this event to commit to attend ALL FIVE DAYS FROM 9 – 5

See programme for 30th June to 4th July 2014 (PDF)

Each day (9.00am to 5.00pm) involves a mixture of talks, workshops and activities; interacting with Academic Staff and current students. Pupils taking part will be expected to make their own travel arrangements to and from the University and for lunch-times and other short breaks during each day.
