Oxford & Cambridge Student Conferences

The Oxford & Cambridge Student Conferences

Each year, the Universities of Oxford and Cambridge organise a series of conferences aimed at Year 12 students (or equivalent) in the UK and their teachers and HE advisors. These conferences usually take place in March-April at locations around the UK and offer sessions including up to date information about undergraduate courses, the admissions process, and student life at the universities.

We run Materials Science sessions at several of the conferences each year, with staff on hand to answer any questions you might have about studying Materials Science at Oxford.

In 2021 and 2022, the conferences took place online and included both on demand presentations and live Q&A sessions. You can find more information about the 2022 Virtual Conferences here.

Sessions at the conferences are completely free to attend, but booking is required.

More details about the 2024 student conferences will be available here soon.
