Merton College holds three Open Days each year for prospective undergraduates. In 2013 they will take place on Wednesday 26 June, Thursday 27 June and Friday 20 September, in concert with the wider University Open Day events run by the University Faculties and Departments.
In order to get the most out of your visit, please check which Oxford colleges offer your course. Open Days at Merton may be attended by any prospective student individually, or by small groups of a maximum of five students with an accompanying teacher.
We look forward to seeing anyone who is interested in applying to Merton for undergraduate study. There will be an informal programme of events running throughout the day with current undergraduates on hand who will be available to speak with and provide tours of the College. Refreshments (free of charge) and general information will be available in Café Merton all day.

If you are interested in meeting with a subject tutor, you must book in advance. These will be group meetings and are for students only. Subject Meetings will be held from 12.15-13.00 only – see timetable below.
Limited accommodation is available to those visiting Merton who are coming from outside a 70 mile radius of Oxford. The accommodation is offered to students only (not parents/siblings/guardians) and is for the night before the Open Day you wish to attend.
Completed booking forms must be sent to the Admissions Officer. Your booking will be confirmed by email. The deadline for both Subject Tutor Meeting booking forms and Accommodation booking forms is noon on Friday 21 June 2013, to allow us time to make necessary arrangements. We regret that forms received later than this deadline will not be accepted.
Limited parking, and entirely at owner's risk, for those visiting Merton College is available at the College Sports Ground in Manor Road OX1 3UJ (just past St Catherine’s College).

Please make yourself known to the porter on your arrival. If you require special arrangements you are asked to contact the Schools Liaison and Access Officer well in advance.
Merton also often participates in the University Admissions Office’s College tour days.
