Live chats for your students about university

Over the next few weeks, we'll be hosting live chats for your students on applying and studying at university. These will feature short videos on the topic, followed by the opportunity to ask questions. See our upcoming Live Chats below.

Registration will be opening soon.

Transitioning to university - Tuesday 14th July

This session will look at what it is like to study at a university and the differences you may find between A Level and University study. We will explore some of the following: what your days may look and feel like, what are student societies, commuting vs staying and how to navigate around a campus.

Choosing where and what to study - Thursday 16th July

This session will help you to narrow down your options of which course to study and which universities to apply to. We will look at how to decide on your personal priorities and where to find information to support your decision making.

Physics Journal Club

(For 6th Form and GCSE students)

The University of Warwick Physics Journal Club is an amazing opportunity for sixth form and keen GCSE students to engage with current research. Set as guided reading, each week we explore a new paper from the world of physics, exploring the universe at every scale from colliding black holes to the frontiers of nanoscience, from the philosophy of physics to experiments done in a researcher’s kitchen during lockdown! Students get the chance to link their understanding of physics from the curriculum to the wider world and cutting edge experiments. Schools all over the country (and the world) are already involved, exposing their students to the richness of physics, and giving them a crucial appreciation of the way science progresses in real life. An understanding of extra-curricular aspects of physics and the ability to read and synthesise new research are all much sought after skills for the undergraduate scientists of the future.
