Maths and Physics Summer School

Students walking on campus

Experience Maths and Physics at Lincoln

A Maths or Physics degree can open up a wide range of exciting opportunities. Here at the University of Lincoln, we want to give you the opportunity to experience what it might be like to study Maths or Physics at university. Participate in our virtual summer school event and join interactive workshops delivered by our academic staff, and be inspired by our former students as we chat to them about the careers that they have gone on to pursue after graduating. Use the opportunity to discover what we do in the School of Mathematics and Physics at Lincoln, our research, and what makes Lincoln a great place to live and learn.
 
Find the full schedule of sessions listed below with joining links for each day. Alternatively, find all talks streamed to our YouTube channel at the times shown. 

Please contact Dr Matthew Booth with any questions about the event.
