Discover your new favourite topic with our Springboard videos, bringing you cutting-edge research from Oxford's graduate students.

We've asked our students to share their research, from climate change and colonialism to microbiomes and mathematical logic. Browse the wide range of topics below - we hope they'll be the first step in your own exploration of academic ideas outside the classroom.

These videos are intended for school pupils in Years 11, 12 and 13. Each offers an introduction to a new topic, plus lots of activities and further resources to explore. When you click on a topic, we'll ask you a few questions and then play the video you've chosen. Find out more about activities and resources for studentsteachers and families from Oxford for East England.
