Lesser-Spotted Sciences Day

Thursday October 8th 2015

9:30am — 4:30pm

Planning on (or already) doing Maths & science at IB Higher Level (or A Level) ? Love science but not sure about Uni? 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, BioChemistry, BioMedical Sciences, or Materials, but not really sure what they are?

We are delighted to welcome Pre-IB (year 11 / final year of GCSE) and  IB 1 (year 12 / lower sixth) 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 from the University’s Careers Service — 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.

All delegates will attend sessions on Computer Science and Statistics. They will then have the option to choose from the sessions listed below – we’ll ask which ones they are interested in on the booking form. We provide some hints as to which session students might like to choose, based on what science subjects students enjoy at school.

Books need to be made via your school.  If you are a St. Clare’s student interested in attending this event please contact your Careers Adviser Melanie Moorhouse. Places are limited so please make your interest known as soon as possible. The deadline that Melanie can request a place for you is 25 September.
