The Department of Physics and St John's College are hosting the first British Physics Olympiad Masterclass for Year 12 students who achieved a Gold Award in the AS Challenge.

Through specialised talks and workshops, the event aims to broaden knowledge and experience of Physics and develop problem-solving skills.

You'll meet other top AS physics students from across the UK and get to experience life as an Oxford University undergraduate student.

The programme includes:

29 Jun 2016 (All day) to 30 Jun 2016 (All day)

Physics Open Days

Open Days - Wednesday 29th and Thursday 30th June 2016
We are open from 10:00 - 16:00

Due to anticipated building works our 2016 open day event will be much smaller than in previous years.

We endeavor to offer admissions talks, demonstrations, tours of the department and the chance to speak to current tutors and students.
