IMPORTANT: the information below refers to pre-pandemic arrangements, and is retained here to give future applicants a sense of likely arrangements "once things are back to normal". However, for the time being, applicants should go to this link: https://www.ox.ac.uk/virtual-open-days-2021
Philosophy at the undergraduate level is always studied at Oxford as part of a multi-subject degree, along with one or more other disciplines. To investigate the degrees and ask questions about admissions, you should attend an open day at Oxford, going to talks and events for the partner subject you would want to study philosophy with. The joint degrees can be asked about there; there will often be current students studying for the joint degrees, and members of academic staff may be on hand to answer questions or be giving talks.
Information about the open days can be obtained here: via this link, you can download a programme and click through to the different department and faculty information.
Our degrees, and the departments you should look for, are as follows.
Literae Humaniores (= Classical languages and literature, Ancient History,Philosophy): Classics Faculty
Philosophy and Modern Languages: Faculty of Modern Languages (NB:requires advanced booking)
Philosophy and Theology: Faculty of Theology & Religion
Philosophy, Politics and Economics: look on the PPE Website; events at Social Sciences Building
Computer Science and Philosophy: Department of Computer Science
Mathematics and Philosophy: Mathematics Department
Physics and Philosophy: Physics Department
Psychology, Philosophy and Linguistics: Department of Experimental Psychology (events in Examination Schools)
Colleges will also give an opportunity to meet current students and tutors, and many of these do not require advanced booking; the link above gives a list of all the colleges admitting students to read for undergraduate degrees. You can click through to read their programmes and start to plan your day. There is advice on planning your day here, and a searchable map (which may take a moment to load) here.
The day is principally aimed at those who are about to apply through UCAS, but those at an earlier stage of investigating universities will still be welcome.
Visits outside of the open days
We regret that it is generally not possible to arrange ad hoc visits for interested applicants, and strongly encourage attendance at one of the open days: they are by far the most efficient way of getting some idea of the Oxford student experience.
