There’s more to the University than meets the eye
Did you know that throughout the year Oxford University invites you to marvel at badgers in their natural habitat, join them for rooftop observing sessions to gaze at the stars, attend fascinating lectures on a diverse range of topics and visit their unique and historical spaces?
To find out more, make sure you drop into the University’s first Open Doors Community Fair, taking place in the Weston Library’s stunning Blackwell Hall in Broad Street on Saturday 10 September between 1pm and 4pm.
The Fair, part of this year’s Oxford Open Doors weekend, will showcase many of the amazing ways the community can benefit from, or get involved with, the University’s services and activities in and out of term time. Representatives from across the University will be on hand to offer information and advice.
Find out how to sign up for the Department of Continuing Education’s courses, make the most of the family-friendly events hosted by the city’s world class museums, become a permit holder of Wytham Woods, find out about free concerts and lectures, get involved with science outreach opportunities and medical research – and that’s just the tip of the iceberg! Find out more.
The annual Oxford Open Doors weekend, taking place this year on Saturday 10 and Sunday 11 September, is a partnership event between Oxford University and the Oxford Preservation Trust. It offers the perfect chance to get a taste of the great opportunities that the local community and visitors to Oxford have access to via the University throughout the year – together with a number of special events only available over the Open Doors weekend.
