Visiting Christ Church

If you can't make our Open Days or other events, you are welcome look round the college throughout the year (college opening times can be found here). It's helpful to arrange this with us in advance (email admissions@chch.ox.ac.uk), particularly if you're bringing a big group. You should come to Tom Gate on St Aldate's, under the clock tower (see the map at the bottom of the page for directions), and tell the staff on the gate that you are a prospective applicant.

Come along to our Modern Foreign Languages Taster Day (booking now open)

We are excited to be hosting our first ever Modern Foreign Languages Study Day on Thursday 16th March 2017.
