All Grad Camp attendees will be invited to attend a Study Group with Industry in Bath the week after the Graduate Modelling Camp (16-20 July 2018). Transport will be arranged.

The problems to be considered are inspired by real problems that have arisen in industry or science. The camp begins with presentations from the mentors. Then, according to preference, the participants form teams to work on each problem. Scientific communication is an important part of the camp and all participants are expected to make presentations.

Please note that both verbal and written business level English are essential requirements for attendance on the camp, and participants must have commenced doctoral-level studies.

Local accommodation will be arranged for non-Oxford attendees. All meals will be provided for the duration of the camp, including breakfast and evening meal for those staying at St Anne's. Attendees will be expected to cover their own travel to Oxford. Accommodation and all meal costs are included in the fee and attendees are advised to approach their home institution for support if needed.

There will be prizes for each member of the team deemed to have given the best presentation at the end of the camp.
