The MathsJam Annual Gathering has been honoured in the past to welcome international visitors from several countries. We like to try to make things as easy as possible, but we are limited as to the support we can offer.

Here is some information.

Travel

Most of our international visitors will be travelling by air, and so that page has information about airports and onward travel. You can also find out more about travelling by train, and about train tickets, always an adventure in the UK.

Payment

You can register for the mailing list, and then you will be taken to a page where you can make a reservation and see how much it will cost, and see details on how to pay.

If you have a problem making an international payment then you can try emailing us - MathsJam@solipsys.co.uk - but we don't have many options.

Visas

Regarding visas - we can offer no advice. Requirements vary from country to country and change constantly. We can't research all the options - that's up to you. We can provide documentation stating that the event is happening, but we can't sponsor you, or otherwise give any guarantees.

We believe that you can visit the UK on a visitor visa and then simply attend the gathering, but you'll have to confirm this for yourself.

Brexit

We don't know if or when Brexit will really happen, or what consequences it will have for EU citizens by the date of the Gathering. It might be wise for EU citizens to get passports instead of relying on identity cards being acceptable. It does now seem extremely unlikely that Brexit can possibly happen before the Gathering, but it still seems prudent to use passports.

English

There are some thoughts on providing Language Assistance for anyone who is a little worried about their ability in English. Click that link to find out more.
