Clear evidence of a planet orbiting Proxima Centauri, the closest star to the Solar System, has been found by an international team of scientists led by astronomers at Queen Mary University of London (QMUL).
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
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.
