Course Resources

Here are some general resources related to Engineering Science.


Overview πŸ”— This is the Engineering Science section of the University undergraduate prospectus. The most important information about the course is here, including entry requirements, course structure, and prerequisites.

Faculty Website πŸ”— This is the official Faculty webpage for prospective undergraduates, which links to various resources. The most important of them is the course handbook πŸ”— 🌟, which gives a good summary of what studying Engineering Science at Oxford is like.

Alternative Prospectus πŸ”— This is an unofficial prospectus put together by the Oxford Student Union; it’s written based on students’ perspectives and gives a better sense of what the day-to-day experience as an Engineering Science student is like, compared to official materials.


'Studying Engineering Science at Oxford' video πŸ”— A helpful video produced by the faculty, providing an introduction to the available courses.

'My Oxford Application and Interview Experience for Engineering' video πŸ”— 🌟 A great YouTube video about what attracted Engineering student Rowan to the course.

Application Resources

Reading Lists πŸ”— 🌟 These reading lists, compiled by Balliol College, are for the papers that first-years take. Don’t be intimidated by how long they are; they’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 πŸ”— All Engineering applicants are required to take the Physics Admissions Test (PAT). Find out more information here.

InsideUni Engineering Science interview experiences πŸ”— 🌟 Current students talk about their interview experience, as well as sharing some tips. We’re biased, but we think they’re useful!
