Here are some general resources related to Physics and Philosophy.
Overview 🔗 This is the place to start, where you’ll find much of the essential information.
Physics Faculty Website 🔗 This is the official Faculty webpage for prospective undergraduates, which links to various resources. Philosophy 🔗 has a separate faculty website, accessible from here. Both pages provide detailed information about the course content and structure, as well as lecture information. The most important resource is the course handbook 🔗 🌟 which gives a general overview of what studying Physics and Philosophy at Oxford is like.
Alternative Prospectus 🔗 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 a Physics and Philosophy student is like, compared to official materials.
Khan Academy 🔗 🌟 This site has a large database of videos that you can use to brush up on any physics topics that may be a bit rusty.
Reading Lists 🔗 🌟 These are the reading lists 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 and Maths Tutor: Physics Admissions Test resources 🔗 The PMT website has links to past PAT papers, and to other admissions papers like STEP (if you really want to boost your maths).
FAQ 🔗 🌟 Some useful answers to common questions about the application process.
InsideUni Physics and Philsophy interview experiences 🔗 🌟 Current students talk about their interview experience, as well as sharing some tips. We’re biased, but we think they’re useful!
