Transition Years

Transition Year Week 2021/2022

As I am sure you can appreciate at present, how the Physics Transition Year week for 2021/22 will run is uncertain, however, if you would like to register your interest and be notified if/when registrations are open please do so by contacting us at

To date the week had taken place in the Spring (usually the week of mid term break) and students attend the department in a group from 9.00am to approx. 5.00pm, Monday to Friday (start time on Monday @ 9.30am). 

The week includes:

  • attending lectures
  • labs
  • talks from technical staff in the workshops
  • talks from research groups
  • work in the library and
  • completion of an assigned project

For any queries please contact Aileen McCarthy/Nini Schwart (Job-share) at
