Oxford Open Days move online
Like so many recent events, this year’s undergraduate open days on Wednesday and Thursday next week (1 and 2 July) will take a virtual format.
As with any Oxford open day, there will be a lot on offer, as colleges and departments run their own events, alongside talks by central student service teams, including the Disability Advisory Service and Fees and Funding, and sessions by admissions staff providing general information and advice.
Here at Queen’s, we are looking forward to sharing some of our new videos, including ‘Words to know before coming to Oxford University’, a virtual tour of the College, and a chance to ‘meet’ the Provost (head of College), Dr Claire Craig, as she answers 25 quick-fire questions. We also have a series of short videos produced by some of our students and tutors, about what it’s like to study at Queen’s. You can watch them all on the Queen's YouTube channel.
There will be plenty of opportunity to ask us questions, with the following timetable on both days:
10am to 12pm: Meet the Students: ask questions about any aspect of student life at Oxford. Queen’s undergraduates studying a range of different subjects will be taking part.
2pm to 4pm: Meet the Students (as above)
4pm to 5pm: Admissions Advice with our Admissions Tutor, Professor Jonathan Doye, and Schools Liaison Officer, Katharine Wiggell.
Open days are aimed at prospective applicants, their parents and guardians, as well as teachers and educators. There is more information on the University website about the Virtual Open Days, and optional registration is open via this July Open Days registration form.
