Transition to University course for Year 13 students

Due to the recent period of school and college closures, the Advanced Mathematics Support Programme (AMSP) is delighted to offer Year 13 students access, free of charge, to their Transition to University course designed to support students who have studied A level Mathematics and are progressing to an undergraduate degree course in mathematics, engineering, physics or STEM related subject.

The course will consolidate essential A-level Mathematics skills and cover topics that will be encountered early in these university programmes. The course also includes suggested wider reading to explore these themes in greater depth.

The course begins on 28th June 2021 with materials for two topics being released each week. 

Access to the course materials will be available until 31st December 2021.

The course is hosted on the online platform Integral.

Access to the resources requires a free login – every student can create their own free account - please let your students know.

This two day, online event will introduce girls from GCSE to A level to the Geosciences through a mixture of activities such as mini lectures, workshops and virtual fieldtrips.

This event brings together women from industry, government bodies, academia and High Schools in order to highlight and promote the role Geoscience has in our society and its potential to be an exciting and worthwhile subject and career to pursue for women.

Girls into Geoscience has grown from an initial concept at the University of Plymouth, with events now present in Ireland, Wales and Scotland. It is a fantastic, supportive network that the University of Leeds is now a part of.

Registration for this year's event closes on 18th June, booking can be made by individual students here

Careers information survey
The Augmented CINCH project aims to promote and increase awareness of and interest in careers in the field of nuclear and radiochemistry (NRC). To this end we are gathering information about how young people are influenced and how they access their careers information to allow us to produce effective and useful resources.

By taking part in this short survey students will have a direct influence on the way we advertise exciting opportunities such as internships, placements and interviews with employees working in industries such as nuclear power, nuclear medicine, and forensic science.
The survey can be accessed here

Please forward on this survey to your students so that they can take part.
We are pleased to present a selection of online taster lectures from the schools of Food Science & Nutrition, Geography and Earth & Environment.

We also offer a number of workshops and taster sessions. Our latest one is called Seeing Earthquakes From Space.
