2023 Mathematics Open Days

The Mathematics Departmental Open Days will take place 22 April 2023 (in-person, in Oxford) and 29 April 2023 (virtual event).

The University Open Days will provisionally take place on 28 June, 29 June, and 15 September 2023. These are planned to be in-person events in Oxford.

Departmental Open Days – Saturday 22 April (in-person), Saturday 29 April 2022 (virtual)

In April we are running two Mathematics-specific open days, with one in-person event and one virtual event. We hope that by running one open day in-person and one open day online, we are able accommodate as many people as possible from across the country and around the world.

Registration is necessary for the in-person open day on 22 April, and a registration webform will open on this page in February. To maximise capacity on the in-person day, two mostly identical schedules of talks run during each day separated by an hour. The talks are somewhat academic in flavour, and aimed at students. Teachers and parents are also welcome, but we limit numbers to one non-student per student.

No registration is necessary for the virtual open day, but in February a link will appear on this page to sign up for email communications.

University Open Days

The June 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 open days page.

More details concerning the structure of the day will appear here.

If you have any enquiries please email opendays@maths.ox.ac.uk.




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).
