Visiting New College

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

Please note that this is not currently possible under COVID-19 restrictions. 

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 latest Open Day was held virtually on Friday 18th September. While we would have loved to welcome prospective students to New College in person, given the current circumstances, the Oxford Open Days were 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 are available on the University's virtual event pages:

  • Why New College? 
  • Academic Life
  • Student Life

On the day, we ran a live chatroom Q&As on our virtual event pages:

  • 09:30-16:30: Q&A chat with admissions staff via the Admissions tab
  • 09:30-16:30: Q&A with current students via the Why New College? tab
  • 11:30-12:30: Q&A with subject tutors via the Academic Life tab

A number of our tutors also ran live video sessions. These help you find out more about the course and how it's taught in College, help you get to know the tutors, and give you a chance to ask any questions you may have. 

The next Open Day will not take place until Summer 2021. If you have any questions about New College or our admissions process, please get in touch by emailing
