Meet Us In Person

We would love to meet any prospective students. While you are always welcome to send us any questions you might have about Modern Languages at Oxford by email (contact us at schools.liaison@mod-langs.ox.ac.uk), the best way you can get a feel for Oxford is to meet us in person. Below you will find details about our Open Days, our annual teachers’ event, the Oxford and Cambridge regional conferences, and other events schools can get involved in.

Open Days

Open Days ordinarily provide an excellent opportunity to visit the Faculty and meet tutors and students. The Faculty holds its main open day in April or May each year, and information sessions on the University open days in June or July and September. There are additional open days in Spanish and Portuguese, German, Italian, and Russian and other Slavonic Languages in February and March. 

Most students attending are in Year 12, but we welcome equally students from Year 11 who are finalising their sixth-form subject choices and looking ahead to higher study, as well as all others with an interest in applying (e.g. post-qualification, mature students).

Please note that you must register and book a place to attend the events below, unless otherwise stated.

Teachers’ Conference

Our annual conference for teachers is run through the Sir Robert Taylor Society (named after the founder of our Modern Languages Library, the Taylor Institution), a network of academics at Oxford and Modern Languages Teachers across the UK and beyond. You can find out more about it here. The conference takes place in September and offers a programme of talks related to literature, and an insight into the Oxford admissions process.
