Many of the lecture courses are followed up with one or two tutorials. Tutorial questions will be provided by the lecturers, and a crack team of experienced tutors will be on hand to help. Although the main focus of the tutorials will be on the material of the school, you are encouraged to ask your tutors questions about any aspect of physics, your PhD and the range of available leisure activities in the area.

To help you get to know your tutors, they will also be contributing to the series of after-dinner seminars.
