Suggested lectures for Sixth Form students

Many of our lectures are useful for A-Levels, and also for career and study decisions, for personal statements, for ‘stretch and challenge’ and to those planning to do Extended Project Qualifications (EPQs).

You can search on our archive, or see the links below to pages about particular subjects (work in progress). Lectures more than 5 years old may have poor video quality, though the transcripts may be a good substitute.

Booking free student places at our lectures (in-person lectures are currently suspended due to Coronavirus)

If you are from a UK school and want to bring a school group to one of our free lectures, please get in touch (email as we can usually reserve some places for school parties (most of our lectures are first-come, first-served).

At most lectures we can reserve up to 20 spaces, but occasionally we can do more. You can also sign up for updates about lectures here:

We also live-stream all our lectures and leave them online so you can show them again in the classroom or students can watch them in their own time.

Want to hear a speaker we don’t currently have?

Please do email us ( if there are particular speakers you’d like to see cover topics on the syllabus that would be useful for students in your subject at the moment – we are already planning the programme for 2020-21!

Want a speaker to come to your school?

Some of our Professors are signed up with the charity Speakers For Schools and give free talks in a few schools a year; others have their own initiatives.

Most are doing something so while we can pass your details on to them, we can’t guarantee they will be available.

Professors who want to do more work in schools, particularly state schools in London, include Maths Professor Chris Budd and Environment Professor Jacqueline McGlade.
