We are taking bookings for virtual events.
Bookings are NOW OPEN for Autumn Taster Day visits to Magalen, Mondays, Wednesdays and Thursdays, 9th October – 1st December. If you send in a request we’ll reply within a few weeks to let you know whether we can accommodate you.
Magdalen College runs regular taster days in Oxford (during Oxford term time) and in schools (outside of Oxford term times). These are run for state-maintained schools with a high proportion of students from groups that are under-represented at Oxford.
Our events are primarily for schools located in our seven link regions: Barnsley, Brent, Nottingham, Nottinghamshire, Rotherham, Sheffield, and Westminster. If you wish to bring a school group to Magdalen from a different region of the UK, please email email@example.com to arrange this.
Draft Schedule of a Taster Day at Magdalen:
10:00-10:30 Arrive at Magdalen
10:30-11.15 Introduction to Oxford talk
11.15-11.45 Q&A with student ambassadors
11:45-12:15 College tour with student ambassadors
12.15-13.15 Free lunch in Hall with student ambassadors
13.15-14:15 Academic/Admissions session [options in booking form]
14:15-15:15 Out-of-college session [options in booking form]
We are taking bookings for in-person visits from us to your school, and virtual events, via the same booking form below.
Our events are often over-subscribed, and therefore your school is likely to receive one visit to Oxford per school year. In the case of over-subscription, schools are prioritised based on the following criteria:
- State-run school
- From one of the above link areas
- Amount of previous engagement with Oxford (last 12 months)
- Percentage of children receiving free school meals at the school
- Polar 4 data
- Percentage of BAME students compared to region
We also run a travel expenses scheme for state-maintained schools that are from our link regions and are bringing 10 students or more to Magdalen. You can apply for this via the form below.
