You can find more general information about University Open Days  here. 


Oxford is likely to be congested due to the large numbers of people who will be arriving for the Open Day. We would therefore advise people to set off early in order to arrive at the Examination Schools in plenty of time. Please see the Open Day  Travel Advice  page for information about car parking and bus services to the city centre.
