QMUL open day helper

Thinking again about where you'd like to study next year?

Join admissions staff and current students for a laid-back event designed to give you a second chance to find out about life as a student at the School of Physics and Astronomy at QMUL.

1.00pm - 3.00pm Thursday 14th July

As part of a university-wide event, we're running demonstrations, talks, tours, activities and taster lectures over two days designed to give you an insight into life as a physics student. We'll also be on hand to answer questions about applications, study options and talk about what a physics degree from QMUL can do for you

On 9th May 2016, we live streamed the transit of Mercury from our observatory. You can check the recording of this astronomical event here, but below is a screenshot during the transit.

The School of Physics and Astronomy is seeking to award a summer internship offering experience in web programming and particle physics. The Intern will contribute to the development of a prototype web app for enhancing science teaching delivery in secondary schools.
