DESY Summer Student Programme 2021

News Dec 01 2020: due to the covid-19 pandemic situation there has not yet been yet a decision taken if a regular DESY summer student programme will take place in 2021. We are currently working towards setting up a programme with online and hybrid formats. Final decisions and announcements on the programme are expected for early february 2021.

News April 3: The DESY Summer Student Programme 2020 is cancelled, due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Each summer DESY offers undergraduate students in physics, related natural science disciplines or computing the possibility to participate in the research activities of the laboratory. Selected candidates join in the day-to-day work of research groups at the DESY Laboratory in Hamburg or Zeuthen (Berlin) and participate in one of these activities.
While the work in the groups is the main activity, there will also be a series of lectures (given in English) related to the research done at DESY. Visits to the accelerators and experiments are also included in this programme.
