Open Days


CANCELLED – The Choral and Organ Awards Open Day  – Saturday 2nd May 2020


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.

We will send those who have registered further information (maps and details about your arrival) closer to the time. On arrival you will receive details of Workshop and Evensong venues. Please bring smart clothing to wear for the Evensong.

Undergraduate Open Days

1 July, 2 July and 18 September 2020

Come to Oxford and discover for yourself student life at our University.

Our next University-wide Open Days are on 1 July, 2 July and 18 September 2020. Open Days offer an ideal opportunity for you to explore Oxford, find out more about our courses, tour colleges and quiz tutors and students. They are busy and you will probably leave feeling that there just wasn’t enough time, but you will also have a really good idea of Oxford and whether it might be the university for you.

A registration form will shortly be available here. Although it is not mandatory to register for our open days, we strongly recommend that you do, in order to receive our Open Day newsletters, full of top tips on how to make the most of your day. You may also need to book for some popular sessions in advance.


Graduate Open Day – November 2020

The next Graduate Open Day will be in November 2020. Please check back here in the autumn for confirmation of the date. This is an opportunity to learn all about our Graduate Programmes here at the Faculty of Music, including the DPhil, MSt and MPhil.



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.
