Open days and visits
***Magdalen College is CLOSED to visitors until further notice.***
Potential applicants and their families are very welcome to look around Magdalen on any day. Simply tell the porter on duty that you are a prospective applicant and you will be admitted free of charge. Here is a link to our Alternative Prospectus. 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.
There will be the opportunity to ask our students, admissions and outreach team and tutors questions on the day, along with videos and a virtual tour of the College.
The 2021 Open Days will take place on Wednesday 30 June, Thursday 1 July and Friday 17 September. The format will be confirmed in due course.
Open Day Travel Expenses Reimbursement Scheme
If the cost of travelling to and from Oxford is a problem, then we may be able to reimburse some or all of the costs of travel. In order to be eligible, you must be a UK resident attending a UK state school or college and travelling by public transport. We are only able to reimburse travel costs for students.
To apply for this scheme, students must be:
- currently eligible for Free School Meals;
- and/or in local authority care (or previously in local authority care);
- and/or have another reason why it would be difficult to pay for travel to attend an Open Day in Oxford.
