Open Days

Come and pay us a visit

Open Days are a fantastic opportunity to meet with tutors and current undergraduates, to have a tour of the College, and to find out more about the Oxford Admissions process. You can visit multiple colleges and University departments.

Covid-19 Update

In the light of continued developments with coronavirus (Covid-19) our 2020 July Open Days will not be going ahead. At the moment we are hoping that the 18 September Open Day will run but realise this may not be possible if social distancing is still in placeIn the meantime, we are strongly committed to making sure you will have plenty of alternative online opportunities to discover Oxford and all that it has to offer you. We are busy developing these resources at the moment and look forward to sharing them soon. Do keep an eye on this page for any updates. Anyone thinking of applying to Oxford this October, should sign up for the latest news on developments in undergraduate admissions and outreach. Our admissions timeline will also give you a useful overview of the steps involved in making an application. Course choice is the most important decision you need to make when considering university so we suggest you start by exploring your course options. We wish you and your family well during these difficult times and look forward to welcoming you on a visit to Oxford soon.

What do I need to do in order to attend?

The Open Days are designed so that they can easily be enjoyed on a drop-in basis. At LMH, we provide those of you who are planning your day in advance the opportunity to book our talks and tutor sessions, and a free lunch, so that you know for certain space won't run out. You will be able to book here closer to the time.

However, if you haven't booked, don't worry. There will be a warm welcome for everyone who is able to attend on the day. We stay open until 6pm, an hour later than the other colleges, so if you have a big tour planned, LMH is an ideal last stop. 


What if I have any special requirements?

We aim to make your visit to LMH as easy and enjoyable as possible. If you have any special requests, for example concerning mobility or access,  please do email Marrium or telephone on 01865 284203 to discuss your requirements.

What about other Colleges and Departments?

For more information on the full programme of Oxford University Open Day events, please consult the Undergraduate Admissions website.

Can I stay at LMH?

We have a limited amount of accommodation available for Open Day visitors wishing to stay overnight. You can book into our B&B accommodation on the link below. If you would like advice as to where you can stay, please feel free to contact Marrium on

Typical sessions at the Open Days

In 2019 we are holding two Demonstration Interviews with tutors in English and PPE.

Pictured, Prof Helen Barr analyses a poem with student Chloe. This is a typical exercise in one of the interviews you can have as an English student, although this poem would not usually be used. You can watch highlights of the session on YouTube here.

Prof Christina Kuhn held an Ancient Rome taster study session for 8 lucky students during the July 2019 Open Days. Students used the virtual reality headsets that Prof Kuhn has been commended for in her teaching, to explore the Colosseum and see how it was built, amongst other things.
