The Faculty participates in a number of activities for schools, listed below. See also the links in the navigation bar to pages about summer schools, essay competitions, and the Cambridge Greek Play.


Oxbridge Classics Open Day

The next annual Oxbridge Classics Open Day will take place in Cambridge in 2018. It is a chance to find out more about Classics in general, but also the specific degree programmes at Oxford and Cambridge in particular.

Both individuals and school groups are welcome.

Cambridge Classics Study Days

The Faculty of Classics runs a range of study days for people interested in exploring the Ancient World. These come for all levels of experience (from beginner through to A-Level) and are closely related to the school syllabus to ensure that they help you exand on and deepen your understanding of your school work.

Full Programme of Cambridge Classics Study Days.


Oxbridge & Cambridge Student Conferences

Each year the Universities of Cambridge and Oxford organise a series of joint conferences for Year 12 (or equivalent) students* and their teachers/HE advisers. The Conferences are normally held in March/April in locations across the UK and are designed to provide up-to-date information on courses available, the application and admissions procedure and student life at both Universities. Admissions Tutors, academic staff and current undergraduate students will be on hand to answer any questions.

College Open Days

Most of the colleges also hold their own open days, information about which can be found here and on individual colleges' websites. If you have specific questions about a particular college, it is a good idea to email the relevant Director of Studies.


School Visits

The Faculty is very keen to organise visits by academics to schools, both to give talks on classical themes and to explain more about the Classics course. A list of talks is available here. Please email in the first instance.
