open day dates 2018
Our 2018 Open Days will be held on Wednesday 27 and Thursday 28 June, and Friday 14 September.
Please note that there is no booking required.
See our provisional programme for 2018.
Visit the University open day website for further information.
Pre-clinical Medicine open days
Due to limited space at the Medical Sciences Teaching Centre, only prospective applicants (and teachers, if part of a school group) will be able to visit the Medical Sciences Teaching Centre and attend the talks. There will, however, be a talk for parents and carers during both the morning and the repeated afternoon sessions. Please see our flyer for further details on times and location.
Open day location
Medical Sciences Teaching Centre (MSTC)
South Parks Road
Oxford OX1 3PL
Directions to the Medical Sciences Teaching Centre
The Medical Sciences Teaching Centre is located at one corner of the University's Science Area, next to the University Parks. The easiest pedestrian route from Oxford city centre is via Parks Road, turning right onto South Parks Road, then cutting into the Science Area by walking down Sibthorp Road (on the left of Department of Plant Sciences), and then veering right towards the MSTC.
The Open Days
All our open days follow a similar format: academic staff will discuss the structure of the course, academic requirements, short-listing procedures and interviews. Students and staff will also be available to answer your questions, and you will be able to tour the Medical Sciences Teaching Centre.
Our programme takes place over half a day (i.e. you only need to attend the Medical Sciences Teaching Centre for the morning or the afternoon), which should leave you enough time to visit a college or another department.

Attending other open days at the University
The information on this website only relates to the open days for A100 Pre-clinical Medicine. If you are interested in visiting a college or another department, you will need to contact them individually, as some may require you to book in advance to attend their open days. Most colleges will also be open to visitors for informal tours which do not require booking.
To find our more about open day activities taking place in other departments and colleges, see:
Due to limited space at the Medical Sciences Teaching Centre, we are able to invite prospective applicants (and teachers if part of a school group) only to the open days in June. For the September Open Day entry to the sessions for parents may be restricted depending on space.
The Pre-clinical Medicine open days tend to be over-subscribed: we recommend you arrive early for either the morning or the afternoon session. If you arrive for one of the later talks we cannot guarantee you will be able to gain access to the lecture theatre as it may already be full.
If you are also interested in the Biomedical Sciences open days: please note the content for the mock interview for the two subjects will cover very similar ground.
