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 next 2020 Open Day will be held virtually on Friday 18th September. 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 the day, 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
  • 09:30-16:30: 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

I have questions about my subject. Which tutors will be available when?

Tutor availability is listed below for the Q&A with Tutors . Please note the Tutor for Admissions is available in the session, so even if your subject is not represented below, please do join us and we'll be happy to answer your questions!
