Philosophy Undergraduate Open Day
This event is aimed at potential applicants interested in studying on one of the eight different degrees in Oxford which have philosophy as a major component. There will be talks on philosophical topics (one main lecture and some shorter, more ‘degree specific’ ones), a general admissions-related talk and a chance to talk to students already at Oxford. You can find out more about the courses on the Undergraduate Admissions pages of the university website.
The event will be on Saturday 6th May 2017, from mid-morning to mid-afternoon. Registration will be from 10.30am, and the formal programme will be over by 2.45pm, though we hope that some staff and students may be around for a little longer to field any remaining questions informally. Please fill out the registration form if you wish to attend.
The event is principally aimed at those in school year 12, who are thinking of applying to university next academic year. It doesn’t matter whether you are taking A levels; you could be taking the IB, pre-U qualifications, or other courses which would be suitable for university entrance. You certainly do not need to be studying philosophy at present, or philosophical subjects studied under other labels – these are not an entrance requirement for any of our degrees.
We have agreed with our friends in the Maths Institute security staffing cover for a limit of 150 attendees, so sadly in order to make this open to as many potential students as possible we will have to restrict entry just to them. Please fill out the registration form if you wish to attend. This means that we cannot accommodate parents or teachers. There are, of course, many attractions in Oxford for family members who might be in the city for the day!
