Experimental Psychology Department Playlist: 

The Experimental Psychology Department has created a YouTube playlist which features everything you ever wanted to know about EP and PPL. It includes over two hours of pre-recorded materials (e.g. course overviews, mock interview, student perspectives) and over five hours of live Q&A with tutors and students which was streamed during the Virtual Open Days on 1st and 2nd July 2020. 


Resources for maths, science, Key Stage 5, applying to Oxford, and finding out more about Corpus can be found here.

Subject Ambassador Katie writes:

"Oxford is different to other universities, for instance through the tutorials and the college system, but can be quite similar in other aspects. Experimental psychology however is distinctly different in its own right - the focus on ‘experimental’ evidence provides the foundation for which the course is built upon."
