Venue: 
Online (Zoom webinar)
Audience: 
Prospective applicants

Are you thinking about applying to study Physics and Philosophy at Oxford? Maybe you are interested, but have some questions? Or maybe you want to get to know the "real" Oxford?

We’re going to be running an online Q&A with current Physics & Philosophy students on Thursday 3 September 2020 at 16:30-17:30. This is your chance to ask a panel of undergraduates what they think! You can bring questions about applications and preparation, or about studying Physics and Philosophy in Oxford, or student life, or anything you think you want to know.
