Work Experience Week at the Astrophysics Research Institute

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."

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."

Thank you for applying for our Work Experience Week, running from Monday 6th July to Friday 10th July 2020. Each year we welcome students aged between 16 and 18 for a week long work experience program. The week consists of talks, workshops and an in-depth group research project supervised by professional astronomers here in the Astrophysics Research Institute (ARI). The week finishes with the students producing a report and presenting their findings to the rest of the ARI group and invited staff.

The application process is open from Monday 2nd December to Friday 28th February 2020 (applications received after this date will not be considered). Please complete all fields. If you have any questions about this form, or the application process, please email astro@ljmu.ac.uk and we will get back to you during normal office hours. We will let all applicants know whether they have been successful or not by the end of March 2020.

The work experience week will take place at the Astrophysics Research Institute, on Brownlow Hill in Liverpool city Centre, and students are asked to ensure they have their own accommodation and/or can travel to and from the venue every day during the week. There is no charge for this work experience week, and lunch will be provided on the first day. Unfortunately we are unable to provide or support any accommodation requirements.

A bit about you...
