Year 10 Enrichment Days

Our Year 10 Enrichment Days are organised in collaboration with the Advanced Mathematics Support Programme (AMSP).  These highly interactive events include workshops, talks and tours of our campus and are designed to engage and encourage students to continue studying mathematics at A Level and beyond.  These events typically take place in July and you can find out more about them and the FMSP on their website.

Year 12 Maths Taster Days

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 2018 we offered the following taster days:

  • Thursday 5th April: The Wonderful World of Maths
  • Wednesday 4th July: The Business of Maths
  • Thursday 5th July: The Wonderful World of Maths

We will update this page with our 2019 dates in October and they will be available for booking in January.

You can find all of the taster events offered at Queen Mary University of London on our taster course page.

Year 11 Maths Summer Schools

Usually taking place in July, the Summer Schools are designed for students with an interest in Maths and will give a taster of what university life is like at QMUL, as well the opportunity to take part in a mini-project to develop your understanding of Maths and its uses. For futher information, please click here.

Applications for the 2019 Summer Schools are expected to open in February.

Royal Institution Masterclasses

We host several series of Maths Masterclasses on our campus each year, in collaboration with the Royal Institution (RI).  Typically we offer two Year 9 series in the Autumn and Spring terms, with a further series for Year 12 students in the Spring.

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
