School of Physics and Astronomy

Space School UK

Space School UK runs summer programmes at the University of Leicester for young people across the country with an interest in space, physics, astronomy & space science. 

As a result of the uncertainty surrounding restrictions which may be in place this summer due to the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic, we have taken the difficult decision to cancel Space School UK for 2021.    

We appreciate this is disappointing, but feel that it is the best course of action at this time. However, the team is taking this opportunity to review and update the programme. We plan to return in 2022 with an exciting new Space School UK that retains the best features from previous years, but with with some new elements which reflect the significant changes taking place in space programmes worldwide.  

You can find some examples of previous Space School events at our main page.
