Course Summary

The Physics stream focuses on the physics and mathematics of a central concept in the physical sciences.

The classroom-based programme is accompanied by hands-on sessions in our labs and computer programming workshops, where you will combine newly honed programming skills with theoretical knowledge to complete a team-based project.

In previous years, students have learned to look at a problem or physical situation using three different tools: the mathematics of calculus; performing experiments; and simulating the situation using a computer.

During the Summer School, you will stay in our Prince’s Gardens hall of residence on our South Kensington campus in central London. Staying on-campus means you’ll have the chance to experience life in real student halls, and be just a short walk to classes and a range of other campus facilities.


In part one you will join a learning stream: either engineering, medicine and life sciences, or physics and attend a range of focussed sessions delivered by Imperial academic staff. This will give you a real insight into what it is like to study at university. In part two you will take part in a team project working together with students from other academic streams to solve a real-world challenge. Led by the Imperial Enterprise Lab, the group challenge allows students to understand Imperial’s ethos of entrepreneurship, teamwork and the desire to find practical solutions to real-world issues.

Extracurricular Activities

Included in the cost of the Global Summer School is a full schedule of social activities and events, conducted under the supervision of our Pastoral Mentors. During these activities, you will have the chance to meet and socialise with other Global Summer School students from around the world.
