Visiting New College

Prospective applicants are always welcome to look around when the College is open; simply let our Porters know on arrival. 

Open Days

Open Days offer the perfect opportunity to get to know the College and University. You can meet our tutors and current students, and speak to representatives from the College's Admissions team. 

The 2020 Open Days will be held virtually on Wednesday 1st July and Thursday 2nd July. While we would love to welcome prospective students to New College in person, given the current circumstances, the Oxford July Open Days are now online.

What's a Virtual Open Day?

This is an online event with virtual content to help you find out more about New College and Oxford. Our tutors and students have created videos to tell you more about life and study at New College. These three videos will be available on our virtual event pages:

  • Why New College? 
  • Academic Life
  • Student Life

On both days, we will be running live chatroom Q&As on our virtual event pages:

  • 09:30-16:30: Q&A chat with admissions staff via the Admissions tab
  • 09:30-11:00 and 14:30-16:00: Q&A with current students via the Student Life tab
  • 11:00-12:00 and 14:00-15:00: Q&A with subject tutors via the Academic Life tab
