Come to Oxford and discover for yourself student life at our University.
Our 2022 University-wide Open Days are Wednesday 29 June, Thursday 30 June and Friday 16 September. These days offer an ideal opportunity for you to explore Oxford, find out more about our courses, tour colleges and quiz tutors and students. It will be busy and you will probably leave feeling that there just wasn't enough time, but you will also have a really good idea of Oxford and whether it might be the university for you. The secret to open days is definitely planning, so do explore all the information given here.
It is not mandatory to register for an Oxford Open Day, although we strongly recommend that you do in order to receive our newsletters, full of top tips on how to make the most of your day. You may also need to book for some popular sessions in advance.
Help with the cost of travelling to an Open Day
It can be expensive to get to Oxford so some colleges are now offering to help with the cost:
- Keble college travel scheme - open to UK students at UK schools and colleges
- Magdalen college travel scheme - open to UK students at UK schools and colleges
- Christ Church college travel scheme - typically for UK students at UK schools and colleges
- Merton college travel scheme - open to UK students at UK schools and colleges.
If you are travelling far, you might be able to stay the night at an Oxford college. Unfortunately colleges are usually unable to accommodate parents - the Conference Oxford or Experience Oxfordshire websites may help you find somewhere else to stay.
Don't worry if you can't come to an Open Day, you are welcome to visit at another time. College grounds are usually open to prospective applicants but you can also get in touch with the college linked to your region and let them know you are coming. You may also be able to attend an event listed in our outreach calendar whilst you're here.
