Open Days

The Faculty of Oriental Studies holds three Undergraduate Oxford Open Days and a Faculty Undergraduate Open Day each year. Open Days provide an excellent opportunity to visit the Faculty and meet tutors and students. The Faculty holds its main open day in May each year, and information sessions on the main University Open Days in July, alongside a further Open Day in September. Please see the table to the right for this year’s dates.

July Open Days update - Coronavirus (Covid-19)

In the light of continued developments with coronavirus (Covid-19) our 2020 July Open Days will not be going ahead. At the moment we are hoping that the 18 September Open Day will run but realise this may not be possible if social distancing is still in place. In the meantime, we are strongly committed to making sure you will have plenty of alternative online opportunities to discover Oxford and all that it has to offer you. We are busy developing these resources at the moment and look forward to sharing them soon. 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.

The dates of our planned Open Day events in 2020 are listed below. This table will be updated as more information becomes available.
