Open Days

University of Oxford Open Days

Open Day 2019 (photo: Stuart Bebb)The next Oxford University Open Days will be held on Wednesday the 30th June - Thursday 1st July  and   Friday the 17th September 2021. We hope that these Open Days will be held in Oxford rather than being virtual events, but this is subject to guidance around the Coronavirus pandemic. More information, including detailed timings and how to register in advance will be published here closer to the time.

There is also plenty of content available on the Virtual Open Days page on the Oxford University website from our July 2020 Open Days for you to explore at your leisure.  

Open Days are the perfect opportunity for prospective undergraduate students to get a feel for Balliol and to meet our tutors and students. They are designed to give you information about the College and the wider University, helping you to make a choice of where to study and which course to choose. 

At the Open Days Balliol undergraduates will be available to answer general questions about student life. The Undergraduate Tutor for Admissions will be available to answer general admissions questions. Subject tutors will be available for Q&A sessions.


Prospective graduate students

All Open Day events, including subject talks, are focused on undergraduate admissions, not graduate study: there is no formal opportunity for prospective graduate students to meet tutors or discuss admissions. Whilst graduate students are welcome to attend to look around the College main site, Holywell Manor (our graduate centre) will be closed. If you are a prospective graduate student keen to hear more about Balliol, or to visit us, we recommend you contact the Graduate Admissions Officer, Patrick Holmes, to arrange an appointment on a different date.  

Please note: due to the current Covid-19 pandemic, the College is currently closed to all visitors.
