Love science but not sure what you want to do at Uni? Talented at Maths, but want something less abstract? Thinking about or already doing Maths & sciences at A-level, but not sure where it could take you? Want to know a bit more about science degree subjects that don't often appear on the school curriculum? Heard of Earth Sciences, Engineering, Computer Science or Materials, but not really sure what they are? What about Biomedical and Biological Sciences? We are delighted to welcome year 11 students (final year of GCSE) to the "Lesser-Spotted Science Day". The day draws together science subjects from Oxford's Maths Physical and Life Sciences Division, and beyond, that aren't commonly taught in schools. During the day, participants will attend sample lectures, learn about the Oxford application process and visit an Oxford college. This event is open to high-achieving Year 11 students from UK schools who are thinking about, or already taking A-levels (or equivalent) in BOTH Maths, and science subjects.
