We are sorry to announce that this event has been CANCELLED owing to concerns surrounding the rapidly developing situation with coronavirus. We intend to run the event, in full or in scaled-down format, most likely in conjunction with the University Open Days on 1st July / 2nd July / 18 September. More information will be advertised here and on our Social Media as soon as possible to let you know about these opportunities.
The annual Oxbridge Classics Open Day was due to take place this year in Cambridge on Friday 20th March 2020.
The Open Day is a chance to find out more about applying to study Classics at Oxford and Cambridge, with course presentations, taster lectures, and opportunities to ask questions to current students and academics.
During the day we run a programme of events, including an introductory session in the Sheldonian Theatre, college and museum tours, taster lectures, stalls covering various courses and application questions, and a teacher’s forum. The aim of the day is to help young people make informed decisions about their university choices, encourage them to consider Classics as an exciting and worthwhile option, and to help them develop their interest and understanding of the ancient world.
These open days are aimed at all students (UK and abroad) interested in pursuing a Classics degree. They offer the chance to find out more about Classical subjects in general, but also the specific degree programmes offered by Oxford and Cambridge in particular.
Both individuals and school groups are welcome.
Unfortunately the event was cancelled in 2020 due to concerns about coronavirus.
