Large Open Days (3 & 4 July and 20 September 2019)
Queen's will be taking part in the annual University-wide Open Days for prospective undergraduates. This year, the college will be open from 9am to 5.30pm with drop-in tours led by undergraduates available throughout. We will also be running other events and talks throughout the day. There is no need to book for any of these events.
|9am - 9.30am||Talk: Why Oxford, why Queen's?|
|2pm - 3pm||Meet the tutors|
|3pm - 4pm||'I came, I saw, I conquered!' talk from Black Oxford Untold Stories*|
|4pm - 4.30pm||Talk: Making a competitive application|
|4.45pm - 5.30pm||Drop-in Q&A with Tutor for Admissions|
If you have access or mobility requirements you are invited to get in touch with the Schools Liaison and Outreach Officer in advance where possible, so that we can make all necessary arrangements.
Prospective graduate students should note that although they will be welcome to have a look around the College, this Open Day will be focused on undergraduate courses.
*'I came, I saw, I conquered!' - These are the words of Eric Williams, the first Prime Minister of Trinidad and Tobago, and one of the Black scholars that will feature in an illustrative talk about how lessons from historical scholars can be applied to today’s contemporary students for success at Oxford. Wednesday 3 July only.
Open Days Plus
Queen’s also offers an extended scheme called ‘Open Days Plus’ for state schools in our link areas of Lancashire, Cumbria, Blackburn with Darwen and Blackpool for whom travelling to Oxford during the school year is not feasible. This scheme provides school groups with two days of free accommodation and meals at Queen's, so students can attend a University Open Day and benefit from an extended programme of application support sessions run by the college. Attendees are looked after by current undergraduates and are able to spend time in the college library and Junior Common Room.
The timetable for this year's event is as follows:
|Time||Monday 1 July||Tuesday 2 July||Wednesday 3 July||Thursday 4 July||Friday 5 July|
