Information and Resources
Our Access and Outreach team have developed a selection of teaching and learning resources to introduce school students to key topics in Materials Science. These resources are currently being revised prior to publication on the website. Please contact us by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org for more details.
If you are thinking about studying Materials Science remember to look through our Admissions webpages and read our course brochure 'Studying Materials Science at Oxford University' which contains all the information we think you will need.
Students applying for Materials Science courses at Oxford are required to take the Physics Aptitude Test (PAT). For further details on this, please see the University Admissions website.
Astrophoria Foundation Year
The University of Oxford's Astrophoria Foundation Year is a 1 year programme for UK state school students with significant academic potential who have experienced severe personal disadvantage or disrupted education which has resulted in them being unable to meet the academic entry requirements for an Oxford undergraduate degree programme.
The programme is fully funded. Tuition and accommodation fees are covered by the University and students receive a non-repayable bursary for their living costs.
Motivated students will be able to reach their academic potential through this supportive and challenging academic course aimed at developing their skills, self-belief, and academic confidence. Students who pass their foundation year course at the required level can progress onto undergraduate study at Oxford without the need to reapply.
Materials Science is a participating subject in the Astrophoria Foundation Year, and you can find out more on our website, and the Astrophoria Foundation Year website.
