UQS aims to provide a well-rounded inter-disciplinary education that will result in excellently trained and educated Ph.D students who will become leaders in Ultrafast Quantum Science. 

Wellbeing & EDI

In the Centre for Ultrafast Quantum Science we aim to create an inclusive and supportive atmosphere for students and academics alike. 

Our goal is to foster a positive and welcoming atmosphere for all staff and students regardless of their gender, sexual orientation, country of origin, ethnic background and mental or physical challenges one may encounter. The large number of female academics in our centre is evidence of our commitment to diversity and excellence.
