Physics and Astronomy

Public events

We run numerous public events each year, the full details of which you can see below. To access a PDF poster of any of our talks, simply click on the image.

For events at the University of Sussex campus, directions can be found in either our travel advice PDF document, or on our central University directions webpage, and while we recommend travelling by train or bus to the campus, car parking on campus is free after 5pm.

Members of the general public are welcome to attend both our Institute of Physics (South-Central Branch) & Sussex Universe series of lectures.  The Institute of Physics lectures are designed to be accessible and understandable to all (see our recorded lectures page to watch past talks), and while our Sussex Universe lecture series are organised by our undergraduate students for our undergraduates, they are also well suited to A-level students and the like. We usually get between 50 and 150 people attending all our lectures, with the audience consisting of some of our undergraduate students, practicing and retired physicists, and local school & college students.


Institute of Physics (South-Central Branch) Lectures

The IOP evening lecture progamme for 2019/20 will be announced in August/September 2019.

All our lectures for the 2018/9 season will be in the Fulton B lecture theatre on the University of Sussex campus (top centre of our travel advice PDF map), which is a short walk away from car parks P1/Science (to the east) or P7/Arts (to the west).
Please note that our lecture theatres are in great demand such that lectures are taking place right up until 7pm on the night. Due to this, we expect our lectures to begin at 7:05pm on each night.


 For reference, here is a list of the past talks in the IOP lecture series here at Sussex.

Sussex Universe Lectures
