DESY Summer Student Programme 2021

News Oct 1: At the moment it is not clear if a regular programme will take place in 2021, as soon as we know more we will add here further information. A final decision might be taken only in 2021. The tentative programme period is 20 July - 9 September, 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.
