University Student Network

The IOP University Student Network is a network to support physics and astronomy students throughout the UK and Ireland. They believe one of the best ways to do this is by supporting societies, as they are best placed to directly support students within their universities. The way that USN tries to do this is by bringing societies together to allow them to share ideas, network and improve.

They also organise various annual trips and events, including CERN, IAPS4fusion, which is a fusion energy and plasma physics trip with a visit to the Culham Centre for Fusion Energy, CAPS. CAPS is the Conference for Astronomy and Physics Students, help in a different universities each year. Plus many day trips and networking events. They also run a Societies Forum which is a chance for all society presidents and representatives to get together and share ideas for networking and collaboration.

To aid with all these activities, it's important that USN have contacts in as many universities as possible, so please do get in contact with us via this page or our email! Please, like our Facebook page @IOPUSN to stay updated on all events.
