DTP Summer School 12 & 13 July – places available

9Jun

Each year the DTP hosts a free summer school aimed at  undergraduate students who are considering a further research degree.  The aim is to give students a flavour of the DTP’s multi-disciplinary ethos and we hope will encourage students to apply to the DTP to design and carry out a D.Phil project.

The summer school extends over two days and includes range of activities across the three streams of the DTP, as well as research talks from academics and partners and social activities with current students.  This year the Summer School is being organised by the students themselves and they have injected new life into the itinerary.  One day will be devoted to fieldwork activities and the other will have a more academic focus.  The fine details are still being put into place, but the draft schedule includes botanic, geological and climate based activities in Wytham woods, as well as badger watching and bat walks, some good old-fashioned punting and a tour of the botanic gardens.  This is supplemented by a range of talks from students, academics and researchers.

Participation in the summer school is free of charge although we cannot cover travel or accommodation costs.  Up to 20 places are available.  If you would be interested in attending, please email enquiries@env-res.ox.ac.uk with a brief description of what you are currently doing and why you are interested in taking part.  We are particularly interested in widening access to the DTP and welcome applications from all students regardless of ethnicity, disability, educational background, gender etc.  Let us know if you need help arranging accommodation.
