Aims

The Oxford Physics Masterclass is an event aimed at encouraging students to study Physics at university. The day aims to develop each student's confidence and problem solving skills within physics by tackling a range of examples from idealised problems through to real-world situations. Students will be guided through the problem solving process, and will solve a range of unusual problems with help and guidance. The day will include:

  • A problem-solving Isaac Physics workshop;
  • A talk about an area of current research in the department;
  • Advice on applying to study physics at the University of Oxford, including advice on the PAT and what to expect in interviews.

Target Audience

Students in year 12 studying Maths and Physics at A level (or equivalent) are invited to attend. Booking will open on the 5th of March and close on the 25th March. Places will be allocated on a first come, first served basis. Successful applicants will be informed by the 28th March if they have a place and will be sent some work they should complete before the masterclass.
