Dates of course: Sunday 24th July - Wednesday 27th July 2022
UNIQ Physics is a great insight into the life of an Oxford Physics student, packed into one week. You will be introduced to new topics such as special relativity, see what lab work is like at Oxford, and experience an Oxford tutorial.
The focus of the course will be on exploring new areas by extending your knowledge from maths and physics at school. As is typical at Oxford, you will have lectures. In previous years, this has covered relativity, astro, and superconductivity and dimensional analysis.
The academic highlight of any Oxford week are tutorials, where you will go through a set of problems with a tutor and one other student. The problems will encourage you to apply what you have learnt in lectures in new or unfamiliar ways. Although the problems may at first seem challenging, the tutor will give hints to guide you through the problem. They are also a great opportunity to ask questions and find out about topics which interest you.
You must be studying Physics and Mathematics to A2 or equivalent.
