Lesser-Spotted Sciences Day
Thursday October 8th 2015
9:30am — 4:30pm
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.
