      Every year the University runs open days for prospective undergraduates and their parents. They provide an opportunity to:
  • get a taste of university life
  • see the range of teaching facilities available within the School
  • speak to both staff and current students
  • get a feel for some of the research being carried out within the School.

What to expect:

Within this school, the events organized throughout the day include:

    • Tours of some of the teaching and research labs

    • The opportunity to talk to admissions tutors and current students

    • Mini Lectures, typically in Astronomy and Nanoscience and Quantum Physics

Student Helpers Guiding Visitors

If you just want to have a look around you can come anytime (other than weekends and Bank Holidays), and have a wander round the campus; a lot of people do this before filling in their UCAS form. If you want to visit the School, it is best to telephone beforehand and we will try and have an admissions tutor available in case you have any questions.

If you put us on your UCAS form we will call you for a visit during which you will have talks on the course structure and student life, plus guided tours of the School and campus. Nottingham students will be on hand as well to give you the "inside" story.

We hope that if you are interested in a degree in Physics, you will be able to come along to one of our open days.
