Year 12 students from across the UK are invited to join us for our Classics and Ancient History Taster Day on Friday 21 June.

Are you interested in the Ancient World and how it can be studied at Oxford? Then our Classics and Ancient History Taster Day is perfect for you. This day provides an excellent opportunity to explore what it is like to study a classical subject at Oxford, and in particular at Lady Margaret Hall, one of Oxford’s colleges. It will include a variety of sessions. You will get the chance to speak to current students and listen to a talk about the application process. You will also take part in two academic workshops with our LMH Classics tutors and, after a free lunch in the college hall, will visit the Classics Faculty for a further hands-on session working with Greek vases and a visit to the antiquity collection of the Ashmolean Museum.

We welcome any Year 12 student who is interested in the Ancient World and has a strong academic record. You do not need particular previous knowledge in any area of classical studies, including languages.
