Masterclass Applications

Application procedure for 2020 Masterclass places

To nominate your pupils, first check to see whether places are still available. If so, email marchant@liverpool.ac.uk  to tell us how many places you wish to request.
You must also provide a Purchase Order number (if required by your school) and the email address of your school’s bursar.
We will process your request and add your school to the list.
We will then email you a link to pass to the parents / carers of the pupils to apply for places on behalf of their son / daughter
A consent form will be emailed soon after to the parent / carer
Parents / carers then print the form, sign it and return it to the following address:


Chris Marchant, Mathematical Sciences, University of Liverpool, Peach Street, Liverpool, L69 7ZL
Faxed or scanned consent forms cannot be accepted.

Please note that the online form works in Chrome, Safari or Firefox or on most smartphones, but Internet Explorer and Edge can cause issues!

We are strictly limited by space to 60 pupils and places will be allocated on a first-come first-served basis. Act promptly to avoid disappointment. In recent years the classes have been over-subscribed.

Teachers may nominate up to four pupils from their school to take part in the Masterclasses, at a cost to the school of £20 per pupil. The pupils must be in Year 8 or 9 during 2020/21, and must not have attended a previous MEM Masterclass series.

Please do not promise masterclass places to pupils. We request that schools ensure that pupils understand that they are expected to attend all three of the listed dates, and do not nominate pupils who will have conflicting commitments on those dates. Schools are required to make a contribution of £20 per pupil towards running costs, and places are non-refundable and non-transferable. Successful applications will be acknowledged as promptly as possible to both teachers and parents.We may reach our maximum capacity of 60 before the deadline, so please don’t delay applications or returning consent forms.

Places are allocated strictly first come, first served, based on when signed consent forms arrive at our office. It is not possible to reserve places in advance for pupils and registration is not complete until a signed form is received.
There is an absolute deadline for returning forms of Friday 3rd October. However, please bear in mind that we may reach maximum capacity before that deadline, so we recommend that you don’t delay.
