Maths, Physics and Engineering Study Day - Mon 20 February

This will be a useful Study Day for any talented Year 12s who love Maths and Physics but don't know which subject to focus on at degree level. It will also be valuable in giving ideas for how students can engage with these subjects beyond school. There will be taster lectures from University College’s tutors as well as smaller interactive classes. This study day will also give attendees a chance to meet current students and explore the College.

Denys Wilkinson Building, Department of Physics, University of Oxford, Keble Road, Oxford OX1 3RH

This is an exciting opportunity to take part in an International Masterclass in Particle Physics. Students will get insight into topics and methods of basic research relating to matter and forces. They will perform measurements on real data from the ATLAS experiments at CERN and participate in an international video conference to discuss the results.

Who is it for?

The event is aimed at Year 12 students with passion and potential in Physics. Schools are invited to bring up to four students to the event and we encourage schools to invite an equal number of girls and boys.
