The Alumni Relations Office exists to nurture and develop long lasting relationships between students, staff and friends of the Department of Physics. We aim to run events and programmes that create opportunities for networking and relationships that keep growing beyond graduation day. Follow the Department on our social media accounts to engage in the conversation.
Once a physicist, always a physicist… We are incredibly proud of our alumni community and we do everything we can to celebrate that special relationship. Please get in touch with ideas, feedback or just to say hello!
Events and activities
We organise a calendar of events just for our alumni – from lectures so that you can keep up to date with the latest scientific discoveries and what’s going on in the department to relaxed networking opportunities. Our alumni are spread far and wide so as well as the lectures and receptions we organise here at the Department of Physics in Oxford – and further afield on occasion – many of our events online or recorded so that they can be accessed at a later date via our YouTube channel.
