Planning on (or already) doing Maths & science at A-level (or equivalent)? Love science but not sure about university? Talented at Maths, but want something less abstract? Want to know a bit more about science degree subjects that don't often appear on the school curriculum? Heard of Earth Sciences, Engineering, Statistics, Computer Science, Biological Sciences, Biomedical Sciences, or Materials, but not really sure what they are?

We are delighted to welcome year 11 (final year of GCSE) students to the "Lesser-Spotted Sciences Day". The day draws together science subjects from Oxford's Mathematical, Physical, and Life Sciences Division and beyond, that aren't commonly taught in schools.

During the day, participants will:

  • attend some sample lectures — explore some new subjects;
  • hear about careers opportunities — find out where a Science degree can take you;
  • visit an Oxford college — find out what its really like to live and study at Oxford.

Speakers will be Oxford University lecturers and tutors, and there will be the chance to meet current Oxford students.
