WITS Physics Careers Forum 14 March 2020. Postponed, new date tbc

9 March 2020

We are sorry to announce that we have postponed the WITS Physics Careers Forum this Saturday 14th March. As you are aware there is much concern around COVID-19 and many events around tDublin are being postponed or cancelled. We are very excited about this event and want it to be as successful as possible, so with regret we must postpone it until we can be sure that it will run smoothly. Once we have organised a new date we will inform you, so watch this space!
