Lesser-Spotted Sciences Day
Thursday 6 October 2016, Oxford Mathematical Institute.
(Year 11 & 12)
Love science but not sure what you want to do at Uni?
Talented at Maths, but want something less abstract? Thinking about or already doing Maths & sciences at A-level, but not sure where it could take you? Want to know a bit more about science degree subjects that don’t often appear on the school curriculum?
Heard of Earth Sciences, Engineering, Computer Science or Materials, but not really sure what they are? What about Biochemistry and Biomedical Sciences?
We are delighted to welcome year 11 students (Pre-IB / final year of GCSE) and year 12 (IB1 / lower sixth) to the ‘Lesser-Spotted Science Day’.
The day draws together science subjects from Oxford’s Maths Physical and Life Sciences Division, and beyond, that aren’t commonly taught in schools. During the day, participants will attend sample lectures, learn about the Oxford application process and visit an Oxford college.
This event is open to high-achieving Year 11 & 12 students from UK schools who are thinking about, or already taking A-levels (or equivalent) in BOTH Maths, and science subjects. (This event will initially only be open to UK state schools. It will be opened up to all UK schools if space allows.)

This event needs to be booked by a teacher. Any St. Clare’s student who is 16 years or older and is interested please contact Melanie Moorhouse in Careers.
