Work Experience students & school visits to the Department

Sometimes, specific projects arise for interested Year 12/11/10 students.  If we have any projects we will post them out on this page and advertise them around the schools email contact list - teachers can join this list here.

Places on campus related to these projects will most likely require a teacher reference and may be allocated by interview.

In recent years, demand has been very high and we prioritise placements to those students who show a real enthusiasm for the subject and are seriously interested in progressing eventually to study Physics in Higher Education. We cannot guarantee that all applicants will be successful in obtaining a placement.
