Graduate open days

Come see what graduate research is like as part of one of Europe’s largest biochemistry departments.


Our open day gives you the opportunity to get to know our community, meeting current graduate students, staff, and researchers and discovering first-hand what studying biochemistry at the University of Oxford is like.

As well as several talks from senior members of the department, the open days include tours of our laboratories, the chance to learn more about our department's major research areas and the opportunity to meet with potential research supervisors. The biochemistry café will also be open all day for refreshments and lunch.
