Oxford and Cambridge Classics Open Day

The Oxford and Cambridge Classics Open Day is cancelled in 2020.

We look forward to the next scheduled Open Day in March 2021 in Oxford. 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.

A booking link and more details for 2021's event are not yet available. 

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 expand on and deepen your understanding of your school work.

Full Programme of Cambridge Classics Study Days.

Oxford & 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. Please email access@classics.cam.ac.uk to find out more. Our schools work is currently under review.
