Summer Physics Course Summary

The study of Physics aims to help us gain a greater understanding of the world around us and beyond us. The discipline studies nature and seeks to explain why the world behaves the way it does, exploring topics ranging from the study of vast galaxies, black holes, and the Big Bang, to examining tiny subatomic particles. Physics is a wide-reaching, incredibly varied field, responsible for some of the things we think indispensable to modern life, including medical instrumentation such as x-rays and ultrasound, satellite signals to watch television and use mobile phones; and is responsible for the Internet itself.

The Immerse Education 2019 Physics summer programme focuses upon providing participants with a taste of the topics covered in an undergraduate Physics degree, while encompassing some of the fundamental challenges and questions faced in modern physics. Due to the rapidly changing developments in physics, a lot of what is conventionally taught in schools can be vastly expanded on. Therefore, the Immerse Education summer Physics summer school programme aims to explore the very latest discoveries in physics and their exciting implications with the guidance of expert tutors from the world’s leading universities.

Immerse is an inspirational academic physics summer school programme for the intellectually curious

Topics Covered

On this exciting two-week physics summer programme, participants will dive into some of the most innovative topics in the field of physics. With a curriculum designed and taught by experts from the world’s leading universities, they’ll be able to explore how subatomic particles behave and interact with one another, use mathematical models to explain and predict behaviours in the natural world, learn about extensive and intensive properties of matter, and develop an understanding of the fundamental forces that govern the universe.

As well as developing a sound theoretical understanding of physics, participants will also be able to develop their study skill set by carrying out research and conducting practical experiments designed to test and explain behaviours observed in the physical world.

Below is a list of topics that participants will explore in detail during the physics summer school programme:

  • Particle Physics

  • Astrophysics Vibrations
  • Waves and Optics
  • Oceanic and Planetary Physics

  • Theoretical Physics
  • Properties of matter
