open days 2021

There are no further Open Days in 2020. It is too early to say whether the 2021 Open Days will be held in person or remotely. Please check the relevant University of Oxford webpages for the latest information.

The information below applies to the traditional, in-person Open Days.

A100 Medicine open days

If you already have a first degree in applied sciences, we strongly urge you to apply to the accelerated, graduate-entry, 4-year A101 Medicine course, which has a separate open day. The A100 open day programme will not be relevant to you.

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 Centre and attend the talks. There will, however, be a talk for parents and carers at 10am and 2.30pm at the Department of Pharmacology Lecture Theatre (number 26 on this map of the Science Area).

Note that the talks for students at the MSTC 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. It is not possible to book in advance.

Directions to the Medical Sciences Teaching Centre

Prospective students in the Medical Sciences Teaching Centre on an open dayThe 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 take a tour of the Medical Sciences Teaching Centre with a current student.

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 one or more colleges, or another department.


Attending other open days at the University

Prospective students getting directions at an open dayThe information on this website only relates to the open days for A100 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 the University of Oxford Open Days website.
