If you have the opportunity, it’s a great idea to visit Oxford before making an application, in order to get a sense of the place and to look round possible colleges.
The University runs two main open day events during the year and the English Faculty takes part in both; in 2017 these will be held on Wednesday 28th June, Thursday 29th June and Friday 15th September.
The Faculty will be open from 10 am to 4 pm.
All talks will take place in the English Faculty building, on the corner of St Cross and Manor Roads.
Each open day will run to the following timetable:
10.15-10.35 Mini taster lecture
10:50-11:10 Mini taster lecture
11:30-12:10 Information talk 'English at Oxford'
2.00-2.40 Information talk 'English at Oxford' (repeat)
3.00-3.20 Mini taster lecture
3:00-3:30 Joint School Q&A
Staff and current students will be present throughout the day to answer questions about the course, studying at Oxford, and the application process. We welcome students interested in our joint schools (English and History; English and Classics; English and Modern Languages) at any of our talks.
Parents are welcome to attend the Open Days, but to avoid overcrowding we would ask that they do not attend the lectures and talks scheduled in the morning. However, there is often space available in the afternoon sessions. The University holds a range of events aimed at parents during the day; details are available on the main University website.
Please note that it is not necessary to book for any English Faculty Open Day events as we work on a ‘drop-in’ basis only.
