Visits and international travel

Students visit CERNLinked to a number of courses are chances to experience new cultures and environments, and to discover how you can apply your studies in real life contexts. We arrange visits throughout the year, both in the UK and further afield. In previous years, our students have ventured to Switzerland, Germany, Poland, Spain and France to name a few – putting their learning and knowledge into practice.

The Ogden Trust also provides specific grants for A Level Physics students to visit CERN in Switzerland at two year intervals, with funding allocated to groups of academies who work in close collaboration for the benefit of the students.

You will also be given the chance to visit some of the country’s top universities to get a feel for what to expect from an academic, personal development and social perspective.
