Are you interested in applying to join LIYSF and represent your country in science? Attending students receive a certificate.
All students attending LIYSF must meet our minimum requirements:
- Aged between 16 and 21 years old when LIYSF takes place – thus date of birth be between 24/7/1997 and 24/7/2003. If your birthday is later than 24/07/2003, you should apply for the following year
- Students must have a good understanding of written and spoken English
- Students must be studying science and have achieved or be in preparation for taking exam qualifications for university entrance
Participation fee is £ 1,995.00 per student
The fee covers the total cost of the programme over 15 days; all meals and accommodation, lectures and demonstrations, scientific visits and entrance charges, travel to all programmed events, certificate and the social programme. The fee does not cover; optional sightseeing tours and theatre tickets, visa, insurance or transfer (flight) to London.
Participants are responsible for seeking their own financial assistance to support their attendance at LIYSF – for advice click here. Participants are responsible for checking to see if they need a visa to travel to the UK and must apply for one, if required, in good time. LIYSF can help in your application by providing a support letter, once fees have been paid.
Applications are considered on a first come, first served basis and are open until 11th June.
Annually 500 students aged between 16-21 years old attend LIYSF from over 70 countries worldwide, many attending as self-nominated individual attendees. You can use the application form to apply as an individual, but you must supply an academic referee who can confirm that you meet our requirements. Once you apply, you will enter our application process and will be advised about your application, we will let you know if we need any more information from you. If you application is accepted you are required to pay a £250 deposit to hold your place.
Please complete the “Individual Application Form” on the right to apply to attend LIYSF. Submission of this form confirms your application and subject to our acceptance commits you to full payment of the participation fees. Only submit this form if you have the funds ready, if you are not sure or have questions please contact us first on email@example.com
If you are a coordinator or putting together a group of students to attend, please complete the “Group Application Form“. The completion of this form will make you the coordinator of the initial administration matters. Finance matters will also be directed to you, but in many cases organisations require individuals to submit payment, this is possible through a group application, but please advise us of this ahead of the application.
If you are making a group application, it is not necessary at this stage to know the names of the students; many schools and organisations select their students later.
Many students also attend as winners of international science competitions, as part of a small group from educational bodies, schools and colleges, some with scholarships or funding from charitable Foundations
