Campus visits for prospective students
Come visit us at the School of Physics, Engineering and Technology on campus at the University of York. This day long event will give you the chance to tour our facilities, take part in lab work, meet our staff, and speak to current undergraduate students.
Dates of future taster days coming soon.
Online Nuclear Physics Masterclass
Join leading experts from around the world to explore cutting-edge research in nuclear physics. Explore topics from fusion technologies, to nuclear astrophysics, to medical physics.
This six-week programme is suitable for students studying Physics at A-level or equivalent. Each week includes three to five hours of content, with live webinars and an online question forum.
Nuclear Physics Loan Kit: Teachers
Borrow a set of practical equipment with accompanying resources for teaching A level, IB or equivalent nuclear physics. Includes Lego to build the first section of the nuclide chart, as well as a detector, Geiger counter, cloud chamber, and dice for modelling radioactive decay.
Email email@example.com to book a loan kit or for more information.
Join us for a specialised programme in physics and/or engineering for year 12 students and explore cutting-edge research and exciting laboratories and facilities. The work experience will take place from Monday 22 to Friday 26 July 2024 and consists of four days online and one in person at the University of York.
Applications are now open for the 2024 programme. The deadline for applications is 25 February 2024.
Nuffield Research Placements
Nuffield Research Placements are funded by the Nuffield Foundation and delivered by STEM Learning. They are engaging, hands-on research projects that take place in the summer between years 12 and 13. They are a fantastic opportunity to apply skills and knowledge learned at school and work alongside researchers using specialist facilities.
The School of Physics, Engineering and Technology offers a range of projects each year. However, please note that all applications must be made through STEM Learning and not directly to the University.
Physics Review is a magazine for physics students studying for AS/A-level, Higher, Pre-U, IB or equivalent qualifications.
Articles in each issue explore physics in situations ranging from everyday applications to frontier research, while regular features by teachers and examiners provide guidance on maths, practical skills and tackling exam questions. The magazine is published four times a year and is available only on subscription from the publishers.
