Physics

Dates of course:

Sunday 16th July- Wednesday 19th July 2023

 

Course description:

UNIQ Physics is a great insight into the life of an Oxford Physics student, packed into just four days. 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, which in previous years have covered topics as wide-ranging as astrophysics, superconductivity, biological physics and dimensional analysis.
 
The academic highlight of any Oxford week are tutorials, where you will go through a set of problems in small groups with a tutor. The problems will encourage you to apply what you have learnt in the course lectures in new or unfamiliar ways. Although the problems may at first seem challenging, the tutor will give hints to guide you through them. Tutorials are also a great opportunity to ask questions and find out about topics which interest you.
