Student leading visitors on tour

Virtual Open Days

While this year we are not able to welcome you to St Peter’s in person, on Friday 18 September we will be holding a Virtual Open Day to give you a flavour of student life here, and to offer you the chance to ask our current students, tutors, and admissions staff all of your questions.

Our Virtual Open Days present a fantastic opportunity for prospective applicants to discover more about St Peter’s College, including taking a virtual tour, watching demonstration interviews, and joining live chats with students and tutors, to get the most up-to-date information first-hand.

Our students will be on hand to answer your questions through a live chat - they will be able to tell you all about student life at the College and answer your questions about navigating the admissions process, arriving at Oxford, work, social life, and much more.

Keep an eye on this page and our social media feeds (@SPCOutreach on Twitter and Instagram) for the latest updates, and please do not hesitate to contact us (schools@spc.ox.ac.uk) if you have any questions.
