Develop a pre-university research project in Physics
Are you looking to learn more about the universe and how physics influences the world today? By exploring interesting themes on our physics courses such as thermodynamics and quantum mechanics, topics not typically found on your standard high school syllabus, you will leap-frog your way to a brilliant career in physics.
Physics influences every part of the world we live in, from geophysics, mechanics, and more. If you’re intrigued by how the universe works, or the mechanics of how the world works and more, then the Oxbridge Online Research Programme is the one for you!
What is the Oxbridge Online Research Programme?
The Oxbridge Online Research Programme (‘OORP’) is designed for students who want to enhance their personal research and study skills in preparation for university, whilst also developing deeper knowledge in their chosen field.
Led by your personal tutor, you will undertake a research project assessed at university-level and receive regular 1:1 supervisions from an expert academic from Oxford or Cambridge University.
This course is ideal for students wanting to gain invaluable experience for writing a dissertation or thesis at university, whilst also familiarising themselves with the demands of an Oxbridge degree. Alternatively, this is a fantastic opportunity to experience a subject you have never studied before!
My tutor was a Doctor of Physics, the guidance of whom I enjoyed throughout. They made every effort to approximate the experience to a university-style project, which is what I was looking for. They gave me valuable insight into university approach to science, as well as related advice.
1:1 Tutoring From Expert Academics
Students on the Oxbridge Online Research Programme will develop key skills essential for success at higher education.
Independent Study & Research Skills
Oxford and Cambridge put huge emphasis on the importance of self-study and development, and this course will help you learn more about how best to research and achieve your goals
The research project will culminate either in a dissertation-style essay or a complex presentation. Both formats will require you to be able to present your work to a high-quality, including how to frame arguments, analyse and reference appropriately.
Oxbridge Teaching Experience
The Oxbridge Online Research Programme provides a unique opportunity to learn from expert academics, and receive top-quality tuition, similar to undergraduates studying in Oxford and Cambridge.
