    UCL Physical Sciences Conference

    This is a non-residential conference for Year 12 students attending state schools. The aim is to give students a taste of university life and the degrees we offer in Chemistry, Physics and Natural Sciences.

    A scientific conference is a place where researchers present their work, to tell other scientists about the exciting discoveries they have made and to expose their findings to scrutiny, challenge, and further advancement. This 4 day event will give you the opportunity to take part in your very own conference.

    You will prepare for the conference throughout the week, with staff and research students guiding you. You will also have the opportunity to attend lectures by science experts, get some hands-on experience in the laboratory, and talk to current university students to find out more about student life.

    The conference themes are Chemistry and Physics, and so to attend you should have an interest in one or both of these subjects. Although chemists and physicists are often trained differently, many recent scientific and technological advances straddle the boundaries of these two classical subjects, ranging in scope from the quantum scale to the depths of space!

    What are the benefits of taking part in a UCL conference?
    To take part in conference at a leading university will look very impressive on your UCAS personal statement. As a conference delegate, you will develop your independent research, critical thinking, public speaking and academic writing skills, which are all essential for university. Alongside all the academic knowledge and skills you can gain, you will also get a taste for university life!

    When and where?
    The UCL Year 12 Physical Sciences Conference School will take place from Tuesday 5th to Friday 8th April 2016 on UCL's campus in Bloomsbury.

    You must be committed all 4 days of the conference.
