Open Days
Queen's College, Oxford
We are always open for prospective applicants to have a look around and we also run a variety of Open Days throughout the year.

Large Open Day (20th September 2019)

Every year, Queen's takes part in the annual University-wide Open Days for prospective undergraduates. The most recent Open Day was on 20th September 2019. Queen's was open to visitors from 9 am to 5.30 pm, with drop-in tours led by undergraduates running throughout the day. Here is the timetable of the day's events:

Time Event
9 am - 9.30 am Talk: Why Queen's?
10 am - 11 am Talk: Oxford explained for parents, teachers, and supporters 
2 pm - 3 pm Drop-in session: Meet the tutors 
4 pm - 5 pm Talk: Making a competitive application and Q&A with the Tutor for Admissions and College Outreach Officer
5.30 pm College closes

We are currently planning for the 2020 University Open Days, scheduled to take place 1st and 2nd July, and 18th September. More information about the timetable for these events will be released nearer to the time.

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, these Open Days will be focused on undergraduate courses.

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.

The timetable for the 2019 event was as follows: 

Time Monday 1st July Tuesday 2nd July Wednesday 3rd July Thursday 4th July   Friday 5th July

During our Summer Term we held Little Open Days on Friday 10th May, Friday 7th June and Friday 14th June. These days include a chance to quiz our Tutor for Admissions, Admissions Administrator and/or Schools Liaison and Outreach Officer about applying to Queen's. Attendees will enjoy lunch in College, and take a tour with current students. Please check back for our 2020 dates.
