This page is intended for 3rd year Chemistry Undergraduates at Oxford, if you are looking for information regarding the Chemistry Open Days at Oxford University please follow this link.)
You are encouraged to attend Open Days in the four Chemistry Laboratories. The better informed you are, the easier it will be to choose a supervisor for your Part II research.
Each Laboratory offers an Open Day during which supervisors will be available to discuss Part II projects in a relaxed atmosphere. You may wish to return later for further discussion, but Open Days provide the ideal opportunity to learn about the research conducted by a range of groups in Oxford.
The following Open Days are to be held in Michaelmas Term 2016 for students starting research in September 2017.
