Successful and popular residential Summer Schools have taken place in the School of Physics and Astronomy since July 2004. They are designed to give year 12 students studying Physics and Mathematics a taste of lectures, problem solving classes, laboratory work and the experience of an overnight stay and a chance to visit Birmingham city centre.
Please see the programme and report from the Residential Summer School 2017.
For the dates of the Summer School 2018, please see our Calendar of Events.
When dates are released, students are advised to:
1. Pay online (with the approval of their parent/guardian) and record the booking reference number.
2. Complete the application form, including the booking reference number.
3. Post or send via email the signed application form to Linda Rogers. Her postal address is: School of Physics & Astronomy, University of Birmingham, Edgbaston, Birmingham B15 2TT
Please be aware that for the Residential Summer School, we do not accept bookings from schools. Bookings must be completed by students themselves, with the approval of their parent/guardian. Closing date for receiving applications is 31st May 2018.
For 2018, we will unfortunately not be able to use the student accommodation (Halls of Residence) for the overnight stay because our university students will still be using it. A suitable, local alternative will be found.
If you wish to visit the Campus later this year, our Open Day dates are listed here.
