Open Days

2020 COVID-19 Statement

Due to the current situation with the coronavirus (COVID-19), the University has taken the decision that the 2020 July Open Days will unfortunately not be going ahead as planned. We remain hopeful that the open day on Friday 18 September will run, however this may not be possible if social distancing is still in place.

In the meantime, we are busy developing digital resources to enable you to experience everything Oxford has to offer. We look forward to sharing these resources with you soon. If you would like to be informed when these become available, please email and ask to be added to our mailing list.

If you are thinking of applying to Oxford this October, we recommend you sign up for the latest news on developments in undergraduate admissions and outreach on the main University of Oxford mailing list. On the main site you will also find lots of other useful information about applying to Oxford, including an admissions timeline giving you an overview of the steps involved in your application.

We look forward to welcoming you and your family on a visit to Oxford soon.

Open Days: Plan your day

If you can visit for an hour

If you’ve already made up your mind that you want to study engineering at Oxford, you might just visit us for an hour and spend the rest of your day looking round some colleges. The Student Q&A and Parents’ and Carers’ Session are your best bet if you’re on a time limit. They’ll be able to answer all your questions in 30 minutes, with time left over to chat with academics and current students or have a quick look around our Open House.

If you can visit for a morning or afternoon

Perhaps you’re making your mind up about which subject or university is right for you. Visiting for the morning or afternoon gives you plenty of time to get a sense of what it’s like to be an engineering undergraduate in Oxford. Get your questions answered at the Student Q&A or Parents’ and Carers’ Session. Attend a Taster Lecture to experience the sort of thing you’ll be learning about, and finish up with a look around the Open House.

If you can visit for the day

If you’re set on studying Engineering Science but you’re not sure whether Oxford is the place for you, we recommend spending the day here to get a real sense of what the department is like. Start the day with the Student Q&A or Parents’ and Carers’ Session, then sit in on a Taster Lecture. Go visit a college over lunch, then come back and spend your afternoon exploring our Open House.
