Open days and visits
Potential applicants and their families are very welcome to look around Magdalen on any day between 13:00 and 18:00, or dusk (whichever is the earlier). Simply tell the porter on duty that you are a prospective applicant and you will be admitted free of charge. Please see our general visitor information, including opening hours.
The Open Day is an opportunity for you to get a feel for the College, ask any questions you may have, and for you to meet our tutors and current undergraduate students. The Open Day is designed to help you to decide where you want to study and play no part whatsoever in our selection process.
Dates for our Open Day in 2019 are Wednesday 3 July, Thursday 4 July and Friday 20 September.
Our Open Day coincides with open day in many of the other colleges and University departments, which you may want to visit during the same day. For information on University department and other colleges’ open days please click here.
*Please note that booking is now closed for Accommodation for the summer Open Day.*
