Tour of college

Visit Worcester

Every year, we arrange a large number of visits from state schools and college in our link areas (Leeds, Bradford, Wakefield, Calderdale, Kirklees and Northamptonshire). These visits are designed to give schools an opportunity to experience university life, and we are particularly keen to encourage those with little or no experience of sending applicants to Oxford. Our available school visit dates for Spring and Summer 2020 are listed below.

Lunch and activities are provided free of charge on our school visits. A typical programme might be as follows:

  • 10.30am: Arrival
  • 10.45am: Talk on admissions/studying at the University of Oxford
  • 11.30am: Q&A with current Worcester students
  • 12pm: Tour of the college with current Worcester students
  • 1pm: Lunch in the college Dining Hall
  • 2pm: Academic taster session/interview workshop/visit to a local museum/tour of a second college
  • 3pm: Departure

We are more than happy to arrange a bespoke programme to suit the needs of your school and the year group you would like to bring (usually Y10 or above).

If you are interested in bringing a group to Worcester, or if you would like any other information on admissions at Oxford, please contact the Admissions and Access Officer at admissions@worc.ox.ac.uk or 01865 278391 – we would be very pleased to hear from you. If you would like to book a visit, it would be helpful if you could include your preferred visit date from the list below, the prospective year group(s), the number of students and members of staff you would like to bring, and any particular requests or requirements you have.

Interested in a residential stay? At certain points in the year, we can offer a one-night stay in college for school groups (meals, accommodation and activities included free of charge). For more details, please contact us at admissions@worc.ox.ac.uk.

Visiting the college as an individual applicant

The College is open to visitors between 2pm and 4pm on most days (excluding certain bank holidays). For individuals or groups of fewer than 6 people, no booking is required. On arrival, visitors should report to the Porters’ Lodge at the main entrance to the College. You can grab a copy of our undergraduate college prospectus from the Lodge.

If you have any questions about admissions at Worcester, please contact the Admissions and Access Officer at admissions@worc.ox.ac.uk or 01865 278391. Unfortunately, it is only possible for visitors to chat to current students and admitting tutors at the college on University Open Days (taking place this year on 1 July, 2 July and 18 September 2020).
