Public Lectures and Events

Throughout the year, the Faculty hosts a number of special lectures which are open to members of the public (as distinct from the lectures for University students which are published in our Faculty Lecture Schedule). Everyone, including prospective students, is very welcome to attend. You can find out about these lectures in the Events section of our website. They will also be announced in our Faculty News and social media accounts. If you live near to Oxford, you may like to attend a lecture. Some lectures are recorded and you can view past lectures on our YouTube channel (click here to find out more about our Online Resources).

Remember, if you do not live near Oxford, there may be similar opportunities for you at local universities and museums.

Independent Visits

The best time to visit is on a University Open Day, when many colleges, departments and other University buildings will be open and able to welcome you with special events and information. However, if you cannot make it to an Open Day or for any other reason it is possible to make an independent visit. For the University’s guidance and resources on Independent visits please click here.

The Faculty welcomes prospective students and applicants and, whenever practical, we will try to accommodate your visit. If you would like to make an independent visit to the Faculty, please email
