Attend a SUMS enrichment day

We run SUMS Enrichment Days every year during the spring/summer terms. SUMS enrichment days extends the content covered in the SUMS magazine! SUMS Enrichment Days will develop students’ problem-solving and teamwork skills. They are also designed to encourage more female students to study maths.

We’re running days at eleven different universities to enable students from across the country to attend and to experience a university environment. During the day, students will get the chance to work on an extended problem in small groups, quiz current students about university life, and hear from young women who use maths in their jobs.
