Students & Pupils

Still at school? You can still get involved in university physics at Queen Mary! We offer workshops, taster days and work experience weeks for students aged 14-18 based on campus in London which allow students to experience physics research first hand.

Particle Physics Masterclass

The Particle Physics Masterclass presents year 12 students with the opportunity to talk with researchers at CERN, work with real particle physics data and attend fascinating lectures from experts in the field. This is a one day class culminating in students presenting their findings to physicists at CERN via video link.

Taster Days

University is very different to school, get an idea of what university physics is like with a QMUL Physics taster day! Taster days present an exciting and varied programme, including sample lectures, lab sessions and tutorials to present a rounded idea of what to expect from a physics degree at Queen Mary.

Physics Academy

A week long summer school at Queen Mary, the Year 12 Physics Academy allows students to undertake a group project under the supervision of an academic member of staff. Projects focus on topics in one of four subject areas including particle physics, astronomy and robotics, tackling questions at the forefront of physics research.

Work Experience

Queen Mary’s Physics Work Experience Week provides a rare opportunity for year 10 and 11 physicists to work in a university physics setting alongside physics undergraduates to develop and carry out their own research project.
