What is SEPnet?

SEPnet (South East Physics network) is a consortium of nine partner universities working together to advance and sustain physics as a strategically important subject for the UK economy and its science base in the South East Region of England. RHUL is one of the partner Universities; the other partners are University of Kent; Queen Mary, University of London (QMUL); University of Surrey; University of Southampton; University of Sussex; University of Portsmouth; University of Herts and The Open University.

SEPnet Summer Internships

The Physics Department takes the employability of its graduates very seriously. Research suggests that students who have completed internships during the course of their degree have a distinct advantage over other graduates. During the summer after your second year and third year (for non-finalists students), you will have the opportunity to participate in various summer internships.


All internships are awarded on a competitive basis and students are encouraged to maintain an up to date CV to allow applications to be made in advance of the closing date. 


Your SEPnet Employer Engagement Officer will circulate a list of paid internships with Physics employers at the start of the spring term. 2014 SEPnet internships for RHUL students included; NPL, Culham, Echo Group (Science publishing), AMEC, Accelogress (Programming solutions), Online Lubricants, University of Surrey and Ensilica.
