Thinking of applying to study Physics at Oxford? This is the course for you!

The Preparing for the PAT course helps students prepare to sit the Physics Aptitude Test (PAT). The PAT is part of the admissions procedure at Oxford to study Physics, Physics and Philosophy, Engineering or Materials Science. 

The course consists of a series of live, online webinars in June / July and September / October, with three summer assignments set over the holidays. The course is designed to help you self-study with a framework to support you.

Although the course starts in June, you can join at any time and catch up with recordings and worksheets.
