Variety in Chemistry Education / Physics Higher Education Conference (VICEPHEC) is a national conference that brings together educators in chemistry and physics to discuss and share developments, ideas and good practice in learning and teaching at tertiary level.

This year we are pleased that VICEPHEC will be hosted by the Schools of Physics and Chemistry at the University of Bristol, on August 22nd and 23rd 2019.

The conference is open to academics, researchers, teachers and postgraduate students as well as those with an interest in chemistry and/or physics higher education (such as A-level teachers interested in supporting students’ transition into university).

On this site you can find out more about our programme including our keynote speakers, how to register for the conference, and information about submitting  abstracts for the different sessions during the conference. You can also find more information about us, VICEPHEC, and how to get here, but if you have any questions or want more details please do not hesitate to email us at vicephec-19@bristol.ac.uk.

We look forward to welcoming you to the University of Bristol in August.
