The Birmingham Popular Mathematics Lectures are open to all members of the public and the University who are interested in the study of Mathematics. They are particularly suitable for those studying Mathematics at A Level and we also welcome advanced GCSE students. Young people are welcome on their own, with parents or with a school group.
The lectures are free of charge and in general there is no need to register. The lectures runs in the Watson Building (School of Mathematics) on the last Wednesday of each month, arriving from 6.30pm onwards for a 7pm start. Please note that the LMS lectures in September have different timing and you will need to register, see below.
If you are travelling by minibus please contact us to arrange parking, otherwise please see the University's general travel information which includes a campus map, where the Watson Building is labelled R15.
Please contact the Outreach and Schools Liaison Officer for more information.
In light of the recent and ever changing situation around COVID-19, we are in the process of arranging for the remaining lectures in the series to be delivered online. To find out how to access the lecture online please email the Outreach and Schools Liaison Officer to be added to the contact list to be sent further details.
Our approach to events is continually under review and we will ensure that we update this on our FAQ page. For further information and updates on COVID-19, please visit our FAQ page.
