The North West Science Residential is an opportunity to stay in an Oxford college and meet current undergraduate STEM students to understand what being an Oxford student is really like.

Participants will attend a range of academic sessions and a mini tutorial, to experience university-style learning and science facilities. Students will gain insight into a variety of different sciences available for study at Oxford.

Whilst on the residential, students will receive advice and guidance about making a competitive university application. The residential is an opportunity to meet other students from the North West who are also passionate about science!
