Undergraduate Summer Projects

Each year a small number of vacation projects are available to our students. For more information on the scheme please visit Vacation Projects in Physics

The CFSA is applies in February for scholarships directed at 3rd year undergraduates at Warwick who are pursuing a 4-year Physics or Maths-Physics degree. Those who may be interested in pursuing a PhD in plasma physics (fusion, solar physics, space physics) after their degree are particularly encouraged to apply.

Projects for Summer 2013

Preliminary interest to supervise a UG Summer project has been expressed by:
Dr Bogdan Hnat
Please contact directly a potential supervisor.
