Open Days

If you are thinking of applying to University College, or are unsure which college to choose, why not come to one of our Open Days?

You can come on your own, with a group from your school or college, or with a parent or guardian. Open Days provide a chance for you to find out all about life at the College and to meet current students and tutors.

When are the Open Days?

The next University-wide Open Day is taking place on 15 September 2017.  Most colleges and departments will open their doors to prospective students on this day.

What's on at Univ?

We run a laid back Open Day at Univ with a programme of College tours with a current undergraduates, a spread of tea party style refreshments in our lovely gardens (weather dependant!), and informal subject meetings with Univ's tutors.

Meet our students
From 10am to 5pm there will be a friendly group of current Univ undergraduates to welcome you, tell you about student life and share their experiences of applying to Oxford, and answer your questions. The undergraduates will be taking visitors on tours of the College at regular intervals throughout the day – there's no need to book, just turn up and let us know you'd like to have a tour.

Meet our Tutors
As well as meeting our students, you'll also have the opportunity to meet subject tutors alongside other prospective applicants. It's the perfect opportunity to ask questions and find out more details about the course in an informal setting. There is no need to book a place for these sessions, but tutors will be available at different times throughout the middle of the day period (12.15-2.15pm). Some are hosted at the departments but most are hosted in College. for In-College meetings guests will need to come to the welcome desk (5 minutes before for non-drop-in meetings) to be directed to the appropriate room. A provisional programme is available here so you can plan your day.

Talks and workshops
There will be a series of talks and workshops on offer to prospective applicants, parents and teachers during the afternoon:

• 14:30- 15:15 - 'Making a Competitive Application, and Q&A' - talk given by Dr Andrew Bell, Univ's Senior Tutor.
• 15:15-16:00 - 'Making a Competitive Application, and Q&A'- talk given by Dr Andrew Bell, Univ's Senior Tutor.
• 15:15-16:00 - 'Exploring Beyond the School Syllabus' – talk given by Nelli Chamings, Univ's Schools Liaison and Access Officer. This workshop will give prospective applicants a wide range of ideas for how they can stretch themselves beyond the school curriculum in preparation for a university application.

You do not need to book for these talks. Spaces will be available on a first come first served basis and in the case of high attendance we may have to turn some attendees away.
