Taster Days


Back to Physics

Have you ever wondered what studying physics at university is like?

Open to both Year 12 and 13 students.

Join us as an undergraduate student for the day! You’ll attend a lecture, solve challenging problems during a workshop and complete an undergraduate-level lab session in the afternoon!

Our next Physics Taster Day will take place on Wednesday 21 March 2018.  Applications are now closed for this next event.

This is a great opportunity for students studying both Maths and Physics at A-level to experience university life and see what it’s like to study in higher education. Students must have permission from their teachers to attend the event.
