Subject Events to take place in April for Year 12 Pupils

31st March 2021

Throughout April, we will be hosting a number of online subject events, open to all UK state school students in Year 12.

This will be Pembroke’s second series of online subject events, following the six that were held in June 2020 as a substitute for the usual in-College academic events aimed at school pupils. As well as helping prospective applicants learn more about the university and studying at Oxford, the online format allows a greater number of pupils to attend more easily, widening accessibility for those interested. These online taster sessions provide an opportunity for attendees to gain an insight into university level teaching.

April’s online subject event series will include the following lectures:

Maths: ‘What is a Fat Point?’ with Mr Aurelio Carlucci (April 14th).

Physics / Physics and Philosophy: ‘How to Design a Large Hadron Collider' with Mr Laurence Wroe and 'Special Relativity and the Philosophy of Time’ With Dr James Read (April 20th).

Engineering: ‘Probabilistic Robots’ with Professor Nick Hawes (April 23rd).

Philosophy (for Maths and Philosophy): ‘Paradoxes’ with Dr James Read (April 28th).

We hope many pupils will join us this year to explore more about the subjects which they are passionate about - you can sign up to the events of your choice via this online form.
