July Open Days update - Coronavirus (Covid-19)
As a result of developments with coronavirus (Covid-19), and in line with Government guidance on social distancing, outreach events are not taking place as planned. This includes our University-wide Open Days on 1 and 2 July which will now run as virtual open days. If you are interested in attending, we recommend that you register for our virtual open days. At the moment, we are hoping that the 18 September Open Day will take place in Oxford, but realise that this may not be possible if social distancing remains in place. We remain strongly committed to providing opportunities for you to discover what it is like to study at Oxford and we would like to encourage you to sign up for our newsletter. In the meantime, please do everything you can to stay well and we hope to welcome you and your family on a visit to Oxford before too long. If you are holding an offer to begin studying here in the autumn, please see our guidance for offer holders.
Anyone thinking of applying to Oxford this October, should sign up for the latest news on developments in undergraduate admissions and outreach. Our admissions timeline will also give you a useful overview of the steps involved in making an application. Course choice is the most important decision you need to make when considering university so we suggest you start by exploring your course options. We wish you and your family well during these difficult times and look forward to welcoming you on a visit to Oxford soon.
