University Links

The Ogden Trust has built links with universities across the UK via a network of Ogden outreach officers who are based in physics departments and are part-funded by the Trust.

Ogden outreach officers support local teachers, provide enrichment and enhancement activities for under-represented groups and support undergraduate and postgraduate students to work with schools.

They are the main point of contact for the Trust with the physics departments, providing a simple direct link and offering free opportunities for the schools in our programmes to access:

  • up-to-date physics knowledge
  • facilities and equipment they do not have in schools
  • information about applying to university and what physics courses are like
  • annual School Physicist of the Year events
  • free enrichment activities for all ages.

Schools wishing to find their nearest outreach officer and participate in the offered activities should visit the Ogden Trust map.

Applications for co-funding an outreach officer (with a September 2019 start date) are currently closed. All applications received are now being assessed.

Please see our Outreach Officers page for more information.
