Open days and visits
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.
Oxford’s 2022 Open Days will be on Wednesday 29 and Thursday 30 June and Friday 16 September. Additional information will be posted on the University website as soon as it is available.
Our schedule of the events for the open day is as follows:
9:30-16:30- Open to Visitors with frequent tours running by student helpers
12:30-13:00- Life at Magdalen talk by student ambassadors (prospective students only)
13:15-14:15 – Admissions Talk and Q&A with admissions tutors from various subjects
14:45-15:30- Demonstration Interview with a student helper and admissions tutor
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 and receipts must be provided for your travel.
To apply for this scheme, students must be:
- currently eligible for Free School Meals/ pupil premium;
- 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.
This scheme has been closed early due to oversubscription.
