Open Days


Open Days present a chance for prospective undergraduate applicants to look around Exeter College, hear a tutor’s perspective on studying at Exeter, and to meet current undergraduates. They are excellent opportunities to ask lots of questions about academic and non-academic life as an Exeter College student, and to visit our beautiful grounds in the centre of Oxford.

Other Visits

The Open Days are an ideal time to visit Oxford, but our Outreach and Undergraduate Admissions Officer also welcomes groups of prospective applicants to Exeter College at other times of the year. For further information see the Outreach and School Visits page.

If you prefer to visit at another time, you are very welcome to drop in and look around the College. Exeter is normally open to the public daily from 2pm to 5pm. However, it is possible to speak with tutors, staff, and current students only at Open Days and not at other times.
