Are you thinking about applying to study physics 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 students on Thurs 11th June 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 in Oxford, or student life, or anything you think you want to know.
