Open Days



Friday 15th March 2019




These open days are aimed at all students (UK and abroad) interested in pursuing a Classics degree. They offer the chance to find out more about Classical subjects in general, but also the specific degree programmes offered by Oxford and Cambridge in particular.

Both individuals and school groups are welcome.

The next annual Oxbridge Classics Open Day will take place in Oxford on Friday 15th March 2019.

Find out more about applying to study Classics at Oxford and Cambridge, with course presentations, taster lectures, and opportunities to ask questions to current students and academics.

During the day we run a programme of events, including an introductory session in the Sheldonian Theatre, college and museum tours, taster lectures, stalls covering various courses and application questions, and a teacher’s forum. The aim of the day is to help young people make informed decisions about their university choices, encourage them to consider Classics as an exciting and worthwhile option, and to help them develop their interest and understanding of the ancient world.



Come and see us and find out for yourself what Oxford is really like!

The next University-wide Open Days for undergraduates will be held on Wednesday 3rd July 2019, Thursday 4th July 2019, and Friday 20th September 2019. Students, parents and teachers are invited to spend a whole day in Oxford, attending events, talking to staff and students and getting answers to any questions which remain after examining prospectuses and websites.

For full information please see the main section of the University website.

There is NO BOOKING REQUIRED for any of our Open Day events; feel free to drop in for any or all of the sessions on offer!


Parents and guardians are very welcome to come with prospective students and visit the information stalls. For reasons of space, priority will be given to prospective students in the admissions talks and taster lectures.

Prospective graduate students should note that although they will be welcome to visit the Faculty, this Open Day will be focused on undergraduate courses.

If you have access or mobility requirements you are invited to get in touch in advance where possible, so that we can make all necessary arrangements. 

*In some circumstances we may be able to help with travel expenses*
