Application Resources

Reading Lists ๐Ÿ”— ๐ŸŒŸ These reading lists, compiled by Balliol College, are for the papers that first-years take. Donโ€™t be intimidated by how long they are; theyโ€™re intended to be worked through over the course of a full academic year, and honestly no one reads everything anyway.

Physics Admissions Test information ๐Ÿ”— All Engineering applicants are required to take the Physics Admissions Test (PAT). Find out more information here.

InsideUni Engineering Science interview experiences ๐Ÿ”— ๐ŸŒŸ Current students talk about their interview experience, as well as sharing some tips. Weโ€™re biased, but we think theyโ€™re useful!
