Choosing which universities to apply to will be a decision that you’ll want to take your time over. In order to get a feel for whether you’d like to come to Oxford and which college you may want to apply to, it’s best that you visit Oxford to see for yourself.
The best way of getting a taste of what Oxford is like comes on Open Days, making them an ideal opportunity for you to take a day or two to see the University. There are typically three University-wide open days every year. The first two take place on consecutive days in June or July, the third at some point in mid-Sep- tember. Check the admissions website (www. admissions.ox.ac.uk/opendays)for details of which colleges are open on the University-wide open days, but provisional dates for Open Days for 2012 are 27-28 June 2012.
