For the most up-to-date details for upcoming open days click here

We look forward to inviting you to join us to chat with our tutors and current students in our Common Room and watch one of our College Tutors give a talk titled: Archaeology and Anthropology at Oxford (this talk tells you all about our degree and how to apply and make a successful application). Find out more about the University Open Days and how best to plan your visit here.

The Open Days are very busy, fun and exciting events. We recommend you bring a packed lunch because there is so much to see and do! Other than our set programme of talks (see below) in our building on South Parks Road we highly recommend you also visit at least two of our colleges (Hertford, Keble, St Hugh's, St John's, St Peter's, and Harris Manchester for mature students). 

Where: School of Archaeology, 1 South Parks Road, OX1 3TG
When: 09:30–15:00pm

From 9:30am - Pop in and meet our staff and students for tea, coffee and biscuits in our School Common Room


11:00–11:30: Taster lecture

Before the next talk you might want to visit a college or pop into the Ashmolean Museum

14:00–15:00: Archaeology and Anthropology at Oxford talk - all the information you need to make a successful application

15:00–15:30: Student-led tours of the Pitt Rivers Museum


In the meantime, why not read Prof Dan Hicks Letter to a Young Archaeologist or watch the videos below which detail how to apply to study here.   

To get you started here are two videos we think you'll enjoy. The first video is a general introduction to our degree and studying at Oxford. The second video has been recorded by one of our alumni who graduated from our degree in 2019 -  Rosie Crawford (St Peter's College). Rosie takes you through her experience of applying to Oxford and choosing her college. We hope you enjoy these and look forward to meeting you at one of our open days soon!
