Work experience

We have a small number of work experience placements available each year for students in Years 10-12. This year we are offering spaces to join us for four days during the Easter holidays from Monday 25th March to Thursday 28th March 2024 (inclusive).

The work experience placement will provide you with a broad insight into physics and what it would be like to work in a busy university physics department. You will spend time with our highly skilled research and technical staff learning about real-life physics problems and working on exciting research projects.

You can see some example schedules of what the week may look like:
