Schools

Welcome to the Oxford Physics schools pages

Oxford Physics has a series of highly active outreach programmes, reaching over 200,000 people in the last five years. Activities are delivered by staff and students across the Department and include research talks, workshops, shows, festival stalls, tours and competitions.

There are two main schools programmes:

INCREASING ACCESS TO OXFORD
We are committed to attracting applications from all students with the potential to benefit from study in the Department.

INCREASING DIVERSITY IN STEM
We work with local children from backgrounds that are underrepresented within STEM to help raise aspirations to study and work in physics.
