Who are we?

The Physics and Astronomy society welcomes anyone with an interest in Physics, Technology or just Science in general, to come together in both an entertaining and educational environment allowing members share their experience and interests with each other. We welcome undergraduates, postgraduates, academics, and any other Queen Mary associates into a cohesive network, engaging people from all kinds of backgrounds and levels of expertise.

 

What do we do?

We do a variety of enjoyable activities open to all members. These include:

  • Socials: From pub crawls to recreational activities, we have a range of events that surely will interest you. This is a great opportunity to make new friends and also get to know the other members from different years.
  • Academic: Every so often we host evening lectures by our academics on current affairs in the science world, from particle physics at the LHC to discovering new star systems beyond our Solar System. The academics at Queen Mary are at the top of their field, and it is a fantastic chance to see them and discuss any questions you may have. We also offer networking events, working alongside our department. Here, you can explore the different career paths available post-studies. With the help of our alumni or external workers in your desired field, you can gain an insight into the opportunities available to you, helping the transition from degree studies to the industry become smoother.
  • International trips: That’s right! Every year we set on an adventure abroad to places in their prime in science, whether if it is research facilities, or even just observing phenomena like the northern lights. What is better than this you say? We offer these trips to members at a subsidised rate!

Membership is only £5 for the year, so sign up with us!

Please note, although most of our events are subsidised, you might need to pay a contribution.
