2024 Mathematics Open Days

We are delighted to host two Mathematics Departmental Open Days taking place in April 2024.

On 20 April 2024 we welcomed prospective students to the Mathematical Institute in Oxford for a day of Mathematics talks and course information.

On 27 April 2024 we will host an online virtual open day, with course information and pre-recorded Mathematics talks.

Online Open Day 27 April 2024

The links in the schedule below go to recordings of the sessions.

10:00—11:00Maths at Oxford

We've also collected together some pre-recorded videos that you might enjoy as part of the online open day.

  • The Maths department has recorded several undergraduate lectures to give you a taster of what lectures are like. We suggest starting with Introduction to Complex Numbers to see an example of teaching at Oxford, and then select from this playlist if you'd like to see another.
  • For students who are interested in Mathematics and Philosophy, we have a recorded open day talk on Infinity Machines with Prof. James Studd, discussing paradoxes, impossibilities, and infinity.
  • For students who are interested in Mathematics and Computer Science, we have videos on Game Theory and Graph Search, as well as a virtual tour of CS department.
  • Separate from the open day, we also run a weekly live maths show called the Oxford Online Maths Club which covers topics of interest to students preparing to study Mathematics or joint honours at university.

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 number 300 bus which stops opposite the entrance to the Mathematical Institute on Woodstock Road.


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 and resources provided by the University and the departments (such as those on our MAT page).
