Are you thinking of applying to study Mathematics at university? We're running a weekly livestream talking about maths problems and discussing problem-solving strategies, with a focus on Oxford's Mathematics Admissions Test (MAT). The sessions are free and available for everyone, and are recorded so that you can watch them later even if you can't join us live. No registration needed.


In 2024, the MAT livestream will return on Thursdays from June to October.


A recent survey of first-year Oxford Maths students found that more than half of them had engaged with the Oxford MAT Livestream while applying!


The schedule below is a record of last year's 2023 MAT Livestream. As we get closer to June and the start of the 2024 MAT Livestream, links will be updated with the schedule for 2024.

* No stream on 28 September due to strike action.

** We've added an extra livestream to help people prepare for the additional test (see this announcement). We've also swapped the not-MAT stream and the MAT 2023 stream.


If you want even more MAT livestream content, you can find an archive of the MAT livestream from 2020 or 2021 or 2022 at the bottom of this page.

Looking for a PAT livestream?

If you're thinking of applying for Physics, Physics & Philosophy, or Engineering, or Material Science at Oxford, then you'll be expected to take the Physics Aptitude Test (PAT) rather than the MAT.

There's a programme of live PAT support on the Physics website here.

Looking for CS interview questions?

If you're thinking of applying for Computer Science, you might like the interview questions discussed on Prof. Varun Kanade's blog here.
