The Senior Physics Challenge (SPC) is a university access initiative directed at AS physics (or equivalent) in schools across the UK. With this summer school we aim to demystify, and make more accessible to a wider range of students, the transition to university physics in the UK.
This year the SPC will be held between 29/06/14 - 03/07/14. Applications are
now closed. We will let students know the outcome of their application
by email in mid-May.
Answers to several frequently asked questions about the SPC can be found here.
Among many activities during the 5 day summer school students participate in:
- General physics/research lectures
- Practical lab classes
- Evening entertainment (physics estimation)
- Admissions talks
- The contents of our Quantum Mechanics course and Chapter 1 are available here
Students will be accommodated as the
guests of a small number of Colleges. Intensive tuition will
emphasise developing problem-solving and experimental skills. The
group will eat together in various Colleges each evening.
