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.

The Oxford Physics Y12 Summer School is planned to run from 27th - 31st July 2020. Anyone in Year 12 or equivalent is welcome to apply. We will be constantly considering the summer school in light of arrangements for the coronavirus pandemic, but are currently planning as though it will go ahead.

This year, the Department of Physics are inviting you to design a poster all about magnetism!

You can create a poster for one of two categories:

  • An infographic style poster, telling us all about some aspect of magnetism, or
  • A research style poster, explaining an experiment that you have carried out yourself that explores magnetism

This competition is open to any students in Year 3 through to Year 13 and will be judged in age categories based on Key Stage.
