Virtual Open Days and Q&As

The University's alternative Virtual Open Days take place on 1 & 2 July. We are disappointed not to be able to meet potential applicants in person. Here are some on-line resources to help you get to know Oriel. Don't hesitate to contact our Admissions Officer with any questions you have.

Virtual Tour

You can look around Oriel by taking our Virtual Tour to lead yourself around the quads and look inside our buildings. Visit the Virtual Tour here.

In this video you can hear from our students about many of the new and improved facilities Oriel has to offer following the completion of a major fundraising campaign in 2017.

Alternative Prospectus

Written by our current students with applicants in mind, the Alternative Prospectus provides insight into what life is like as an Oriel student. You can download the Oriel Alternative Prospectus here.

Sample Interviews

Here's some advice on what to expect at an Oriel interview.

Take a Tour With a Student

One of our students, Molly Gibson-Mee, has created videos sharing her sense of Oriel as a place to live and study. You can find more of her videos on her MollyatOxford Youtube channel, including tours of other Oxford colleges, subject-specific videos, information for international students, days in the life of an Oxford student and much more! We would like to say a big thank you to Molly for letting us share her content with you, and for all her hard work in making these videos.
