We host multiple school visits, open days and other outreach events throughout the year. If you’re interested in applying or finding out more about us you can always get in touch to arrange a tour. Use the links below to find out about the outreach events we run for schools and other opportunities to visit us.

You and your students are guaranteed a fascinating glimpse into the real life of an Oxford college through these visits. Our academics are experts in capturing the imagination of young people through taster sessions on subjects ranging from the challenges of translating Harry Potter into French to the joys of studying the Ancient world or diving to the bottom of the ocean researching climate change. Your visit will also includes a tour of the College buildings and a free lunch in our beautiful Dining Hall. These visits are offered free of charge to students from Year 7 upwards.
