Admissions interviews for Oxford Physics are purely academic in nature and, while there is no formal syllabus, knowledge of the entrance test syllabus material will be assumed.

Please note: For 2020 all short-listed candidates will have virtual interviews (dates to be specified).

You are likely to spend the great majority of your time talking about physics or mathematics, rather than about any wider interests you may have mentioned on your application form. Interviewers may, however, choose to ask you about specific topics you have mentioned on your form, and it is wise to ensure that you are familiar with any topics you have mentioned.

Detailed advice about preparation for interviews can be found in the leaflet Interviews at Oxford; printed copies are available from the Undergraduate Admissions Office and it is also available on the University web site.
