University of Oxford Virtual Open Days 2021

Even though we unfortunately couldn't welcome you to the department in person this year, we were delighted to be taking part in this year's University of Oxford Virtual Open Days! These took place on 30th June, 1st July, and 17th September 2021. You can find all of our online resources and the recordings of the livestream Q&As which took place on the days on our Virtual Outreach pages and also on our YouTube channel.

Typical Timetable

In a normal year, we would be pleased to welcome you into the department in person and offer the following as a typical programme:

  •  Materials Science Taster Lecture (speakers to be confirmed)
  •  Department tours (~20mins. Last tour at 10:40)
  •  Materials Science at Oxford Talk 
  •  Refreshments with Tutors and students

We will confirm our 2022 timetables nearer the time, whether these are online, in person, or a mixture of both.

To get an idea for what we had on offer at the 2021 Virtual Open Days, see the below timetable:
