Virtual Open Day 2017

On Thursday 7th December 2017, the Mathematical Institute will be holding its second Graduate Virtual Open Day, from 15:00-16:00 (UK time). This year, the Virtual Open Day will be focusing on taught masters' courses offered at the Mathematical Institute, which will include the following degrees:

  • MSc Mathematical and Computational Finance
  • MSc Mathematics and Foundations of Computer Science
  • MSc Mathematical Modelling and Scientific Computing
  • MSc Mathematical Sciences
  • MSc Mathematical and Theoretical Physics

This will be an interactive livestreamed event, where members of faculty will be providing information on the courses mentioned above and also will be answering your queries. If you are a prospective applicant, please e-mail your questions to and tweet them to @OxUniMaths and we will attempt to answer as many of these questions during the hour as possible.

The video can be accessed on and should also be visible below.
