Work Experience Week

Each summer the Astrophysics Research Institute (home to The Schools' Observatory) runs a work experience week. In 2024 we will be welcoming Liverpool City Region students, from school year 12 (or equivalent), to the programme. This week consists of talks, workshops, and gives the students an idea of how professional research is done at a university.

We will be opening applications for 2024 early in the new year.

There is no charge for this work experience week.






Read what students have said about Work Experience Week

It was such an informative and hands on week that I would recommend to anyone considering Physics at university in the future, as it really helped to affirm my choice of doing a Natural Sciences degree at university.

All in all it was a really fun and interesting week, it provides a realistic insight into research jobs and student life at any university...I would highly recommend that all students apply to this, as it really was intriguing and provides amazing opportunities and a lot of information.
