Royal Institution Masterclasses

Since 2012 the University has been working in partnership with the Royal Institution to run masterclasses for gifted maths and engineering students from our local schools and colleges.

We usually run masterclasses between January and March:

  • Maths for Year 12s
  • Engineering for Year 9s
  • Computer Science for Year 9s

Students visit the University for six Saturdays to attend workshops led by professional scientists, engineers and mathematicians who are passionate about their subject and able to communicate complex concepts to a younger audience in a fun and creative way.
