Outreach Talks and Events

Balliol runs several annual programmes and events designed to widen access to the University of Oxford. Some are available only to schools in Hertfordshire (our link region) and some are open to students from any school.

Subject Taster Days

From time to time we offer one-day events that offer school students (from anywhere, not just Hertfordshire) the opportunity to experience what studying a particular subject is like at Oxford University. Forthcoming events will be listed here.
