Open Days

Come and visit us

2020 Open Days

This year our open days will be held on Wednesday 1 & Thursday 2 July and Friday 28 September where across the university, departments and colleges will be opening their doors to prospective students, their families and teachers to find out what studying at Oxford is really like. To find out more about the main university programme for the day, please click here.

Here at the Department of Engineering Science we will be opening the doors to our main undergraduate teaching building and inviting people to explore what it is like to study Engineering at Oxford. Come along and visit our teaching spaces and labs, meet our staff and current students and sample a lecture or two. The full programme for the day will be posted here a few weeks before each open day.

A registration form will soon be available here for you to register your interest in attending this event. In the meantime, if you would like to be kept up to date with the updates about the open days as well as the other student events we organise at the department, please email and ask to be put on our mailing list.

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.
