The Cambridge Particle Physics Masterclass

One of a set of masterclasses organised by University High Energy Particle Physics Groups within the UK during March/April every year, as part of the Institute of Physics National Particle Physics Masterclass programme. More general information can be found here.

The 2019 Masterclass will be held on Monday 25th & Tuesday 26th March 2019.

Bookings now closed.

The High Energy Physics Group of the University of Cambridge Department of Physics regularly holds 1-day events to highlight some of the latest developments in Particle Physics research. These events are primarily intended for those students taking A-Level modules or equivalent that include particle physics, but are also open to any physics student or teacher interested in studying or teaching the subject. The days are a mixture of short talks by research physicists and practical sessions. Our program will be announced nearer the time to remain topical.

Bookings will be confirmed as soon as possible, but numbers from each school may have to be limited and we will not be able to guarantee places of more than 5 students from each school.

If you would like to be put on the reserve list, in case other schools cancel, please contact Amelia Bloomfield at
