We are hosting an Open Day for prospective graduate students on Wednesday 29 November 2023. This will take place between 10:00 and 16:00 in the Denys Wilkinson Building, which is home to the Astrophysics sub-department.

The program includes overviews of the graduate admissions process and the DPhil program, as well as an overview of the research we do in Oxford Astrophysics. Representatives from each of our research areas will present brief overviews of the projects on offer. There is plenty of space throughout the day to meet with prospective supervisors or for other informal discussions, and there is also a (students only!) session where prospective applicants can chat with our current cohort about their experiences as a Oxford DPhil student in Astrophysics. We will provide lunch and refreshments throughout the day, which concludes with an optional tour of some of the laboratory spaces in the building.
