University Open Days - Wednesday 1 July, Thursday 2 July and Friday 18 September 2020

The July and September open days are University wide and will take place in both colleges and departments. The Mathematical Institute does not require registration but please check directly with Colleges/other departments whether their open day events require pre-booking. More information can be found on the University Admission open days webpages.

There will be a short series of drop-in talks in the department in the morning from 10.00-12.00, repeated in the afternoon 14.30-16.30, so that visitors can spend half the day at one of the many college open days. As part of this there are talks for those interested in the joint degrees with Philosophy or Statistics. Those interested in the joint degree with Computer Science should also attend the talks in the Department of Computer Science. 

Also at the July and September open days you will find the Open Day Information Centre at the Examination Schools, which may be of particular interest to international students, students with disabilities, or those with questions about careers and/or finance. Full details will be given in the Open Day Guide, available on the University Admissions open days webpages.

Programmes of talks for the 2019 open days are available below for a flavour of what to expect in 2020:

The talks in the department are written with students in mind, but are also suitable for parents and teachers. In the event, though, of the lecture rooms becoming over full priority will be given to prospective students.

If you have any enquiries please email opendays@maths.ox.ac.uk or call 01865 615205.

Travel Information 

Oxford is within easy reach via road and rail from a number of places. See guidance on travel to the department for a location map. 

We strongly recommended that you use public transport, if at all possible. If you do travel by car, please note that there is no parking available at the Mathematical Institute and parking in the city centre is very limited.  There are several Park & Ride bus services which run from car parks on the outskirts of Oxford. Where possible, we advise parking at Pear Tree and taking the #300 bus which stops opposite the entrance to the Mathematical Institute on Woodstock Road.

Please see the travel advice for those coming to the University Open Days.

Please be aware…

During your visit to Oxford you may see third-party organisations handing out leaflets in the street, claiming to offer advice on the application process. Please be warned that these businesses are not affiliated with the University of Oxford, and they may charge for their services. We encourage you to take advantage of the many free opportunities the University is offering to find out more.
