Open day dates in 2014 

Wednesday, 2 July

Thursday, 3 July

Friday, 19 September

Details of our open day events will be available here from May.  You do not need to register for our open days.  A few events, such as some of those with tutors, do require advance booking. In order to secure your place you will need to contact the college or department running the event as there is no centralised booking.  However, most of our events, including college tours, do  not require booking and you are very welcome just to turn up.

It is easy to feel that there is just too much to do and see at our open days. In our experience people who plan their day in advance often feel they have made the most of their visit.

Booking for events

In order to avoid disappointment, please do check whether or not you need to book in advance for events you'd like to attend. Colleges and departments may require advance booking for some of their events. Also, please note that very busy events may only have places available for students, not for parents as well. Colleges may also offer accommodation to those travelling significant distances, and this is a great way to experience Oxford life. Parents and others who are unable to attend events in colleges and departments are very welcome to visit the Open Day Information Centre at the Examination Schools in the High Street, which will be open 09.00-17.00.  There there will be information desks at this centre all day, as well as talks in the afternoon.

Drop-in events

Most events do not require booking and you are welcome just to drop in.
