Open and Study Days

Open Days

St Peter's will be participating in the University Open days to be held on Wednesday 28 June, Thursday 29 June and Friday 15 September 2017. 

The College will be open to drop-in visitors between 10am and 5pm, and there will be plenty of opportunity to meet with current students, who will also be leading tours of the College. Stop by the College to listen to live music (performed by our current students), while you enjoy some light refreshments that will be available throughout the day. 

All events during the day are drop-in only - there's no need to book a place.

A full programme of events will be made available here closer to the time.

For those who are unable to attend an open day, visits at other times can be arranged. Potential applicants with specific questions are also welcome to contact the Tutor for Admissions by email.
