The July 2019 Open Days team

Open Days for prospective applicants

“…an inclusive community with the perfect balance of fun and academia.”

Welcome to Merton! We’re sorry that you can’t join us in person for this year’s Open Days but we hope you’ll find plenty of information on the college and university websites about studying and living here.

If you’d like a Merton College Open Day pack, please leave your details here and we’d be happy to send one to you:

This will be used only for mailing post-open day material, and your details will be deleted as soon as that’s been done.

From 8:00am to 4:00pm on Friday 17 September, you can join us for Q&A sessions with our undergraduates, tutors and admissions staff, and livestream subject sessions.

Our subject tutors in Biochemistry, Classics, English, History, Law, Modern Languages, Music, and Physics, and our Director of Music have produced some short videos for you. We’ve also included an open day tour from our last in-person event in 2019 and wish it wasn’t so long ago…

At Why Merton you can watch our ‘Everything you ever wanted to know about Merton ’ video, and find Merton’s Alternative Prospectus (written by our students).

If you have any questions about the college or applying here then please don’t hesitate to get in touch by emailing:

If you’d like to join our Tutors’ livestream sessions with Q&A, please follow on the links below.
