Maths Taster Days for A Level students

Every year we offer several Maths Taster Days for A Level students (or equivalent) alongside other University of London institutions.  These are a great opportunity to ‘try out’ a maths degree and get a better idea of what life as a maths student might be like before applying! In 2020 we will be offering the following taster days:

You must be studying A Level Maths or about to enter A Level Maths to be eligible to attend a taster day.

Queen Mary Mathematics Society Conference

The Mathematics Society at Queen Mary hosts an annual conference for students interested in learning more about the power of Maths. The event usually takes place in March each year so details will be available closer to the date.

Royal Institution Masterclasses

We work with the Royal Institution to deliver a series of six maths masterclasses for Year 9 and Year 12 students. Ri Mathematics Masterclasses are series of free workshops which are led by experts from industry, academia and education. They offer students in-depth investigations of topics in Mathematics combining theory with interactive exploration. Schools are invited to nominate up to 5 students to attend. 

Dates for the 2021 series will be available towards the end of 2020.

Teachers can nominate students for places on these Masterclasses.  More information is available on the RI website, or by emailing

Workshops, talks and campus visits

We are able to offer a limited number of workshops and talks either in school or on our campus, for school groups of GCSE and A Level students. If you're a Secondary Maths Teacher or HE Co-ordinator please get in touch for more information, by emailing
