Potential undergraduate applicants visiting Oxford today and tomorrow for our open days will be welcomed by our science departments.
The Department of Earth Sciences will be open from 10-4pm, with an introduction to the course at 11am, repeated at 2pm. They said, 'Displays and demonstrations during the day include a mineral press, a rotating annulus which models atmospheric circulation, an ocean gravity tank, and the opportunity to look through rocks on our brand new Leica microscopes'.
The Department of Chemistry will be welcoming approximately 400 prospective students through their doors today. They said, 'The students will have the opportunity to find out more about the undergraduate course at Oxford in the surroundings of the Abbotts Kitchen, the original chemistry laboratories of the University. We will also be delivering a talk about the application and admissions process.
'There will be tours of the department's excellent facilities, exciting hands-on practical challenges to engage with in the teaching labs, and an informative demo lecture to further inspire the next generation of chemists.'
Materials Science will open its doors to students over the next couple of days offering a morning programme of talks and tours. They said, 'There will be an opportunity to talk to current undergraduates, tour the department including the excellent Electron Microscope Suite and find out more about applications and admissions to this fascinating subject at Oxford'.
