Nanotechnology is increasingly important to many diverse sectors of industry and medicine, offering the potential to transform the way that medical and healthcare solutions are developed and delivered. Drawing on Oxford’s internationally recognised reputation for nanotechnology teaching and research, the courses are taught by leading nanotechnology and nanomedicine researchers and practitioners from the University of Oxford and beyond. Selected modules include access to the ultramodern suite of materials characterisation equipment at Begbroke Science Park and Oxford’s Department of Materials

Practical Nanoscience Skills Training for Science Teachers

We also offer an annual nanoscience skills training course for teachers.
