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.

The School of Physics and Astronomy student blog has picked up momentum since its launch in February.

Students enrolling on an MSc in Astrophysics in 2016 are eligible to apply for a new scholarship scheme for both home/EU students and overseas students.

The 2 amounts of £2,250 (home/EU students) and one amount of £4,500 (overseas students) and are open to students with a first class bachelor's degree (or international equivalent) in related field.

Today’s announcement from LIGO (Laser Interferometer Gravitational wave Observatory) concerning gravitational waves has rekindled excitement in the amazing predictions of Einstein’s theory of general relativity.

We're running a postgraduate open evening on Wednesday the 10th Feb from 4.30 - 7.30.

If you're considering an MSc in Physics or Astrophysics, this is a great opportuntity to find out more. Join us for an evening of talks and a chance to chat to academic programme directors and admissions staff. 

On the 28th and 29th of November we hosted a meeting to celebrate the 100th anniversary of general relativity. It was called Einstein's Legacy, and included plenary and public talks, as well as outreach events and a poster session. Around 500 people attended. Photos and videos can be found here.
