FACULTY OPEN DAYS
Friday 15 September 2017 is the post-Results catch up afternoon – here’s the Open Day Schedule
The main open days are held in the Summer – on Wednesday 27 and Thursday 28 June 2018 – here’s the Open Day Schedule for 2017 as an example
We welcome parents, guardians and teachers. You do not need to book to attend our Faculty Open Days. However you will probably want to visit colleges, several of which may require you to book in advance should you wish to join their formal programmes of activity. Most colleges will be open if you simply wish to take a brief tour. Do visit individual college websites to check.
IMPORTANT – Advice on travelling to Oxford for Open Days
We strongly recommended that you use public transport, if at all possible. If you do travel by car, please note that parking in the city centre is very limited. There are several Park & Ride bus services which run from car parks on the outskirts of Oxford. Drivers coming from the east, including London, the south and the west are advised to use the Redbridge Park & Ride, while drivers arriving from the north can choose between Pear Tree and Water Eaton. Please avoid both the Thornhill and Seacourt Park & Rides which are often full. For maps and further details about travel and parking, please see Maps and Directions.
Please note that if you are coming a significant distance and would like college accommodation during your visit, you need to follow the college links detailed on this webpage for further information on how to arrange this.
THE CHORAL AND ORGAN AWARD OPEN DAY – 29 April 2018
This day provides a great opportunity to find out about choral and organ awards and the various college choirs. You will have the opportunity to meet and work with some of the directors of music and current choral and organ scholars. There will be a programme of workshops and a chance to sing with one of the College choirs for Choral Evensong. You will also receive advice on how to prepare for the organ and choral auditions. This is a wonderful chance to get a taste of what it would be like to be a choral or organ scholar at Oxford.
The programme for 2018 has not yet been finalised, but to give you an idea of the day’s events, here is the Choral and Organ Open Day Programme for 2017.
BOOKING FOR THE OPEN DAY WILL BE ACTIVATED NEARER THE TIME.
If you have booked a place on the Open Day you will receive an email one or two days before, telling you which workshop and evensong you will attend. (You will also receive this information on arrival). Please bring smart clothing to wear for the Evensong.
