Centre for Postgraduate Training in Plasma Physics and High Energy Density Science
Imperial College London, the University of Oxford and the University of Warwick have joined together to offer postgraduate students the highest quality training in plasma and high energy density physics, unparalleled anywhere in the United Kingdom.
The location of our Universities, close to one of the largest concentrations of National Laboratories in Europe (STFC’s Rutherford Appleton Laboratory, the Culham Centre for Fusion Energy and AWE Aldermaston) provides students with competitive access to the most advanced lasers, magnetic confinement devices and computer facilities in the world for cutting-edge research in high energy density plasma physics and fusion science. Students will also have access to many of the major facilities in the United States, the European Union and Asia-Pacific where our academics spearhead high profile international collaborations.
Students will be brought together regularly throughout the year to participate in:
- Autumn School "Introduction to Plasma Physics" at the Cosener's House, Abingdon
- Interconnected Pedagogical Lectures at Oxford by academics from Imperial College, Oxford and Warwick
- End of Year Student Conference Winter School in Computational Methods at the University of Warwick
- Easter School in Experimental Methods at the Rutherford Appleton Laboratory at Imperial College London
