Physics Experience Week

Following the two Physics Experience Weeks held in 2012 and 2013, we are pleased to announce that we plan to make this an annual event.

Please note that the Physics Experience Week for Summer 2014 is now full.

The Phyiscs Experience Week 2014 will provisionally take place from 30th June to 4th July 2014.  The week is open to individual Year 11 students (no more than 2 at the most from any one school) who are committed to studying A-levels in Physics and Mathematics the following year.  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.

See programme for 1st - 5th July 2013 (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.
