Open Days

Undergraduate open days at the School of Archaeology

The School of Archaeology hosts three open day events each year, two in the summer and one in September. In 2020 these will be held on Wednesday 1 July, Thursday 2 July and Friday 18 September. If you can't make it to Oxford for one of these days we also attend two summer events in London - the London Anthropology Day (19 June) and the University Archaeology Day (22 October) and our tutors also attend Oxford and Cambridge Student Conferences at various cities across the UK, usually throughout March.

On each Oxford Open Day the School opens the doors to its South Parks Road building from 10am till 3pm with the following programme of events.  We know you'll also want to visit some of our seven colleges but we can't encourage you strongly enough to join our 2pm talk.
