Open Days, Events and Visits

Upcoming events

The College is always open as part of the University-wide Open Days in July and September. These Open Days are aimed at prospective applicants from Year 12 (or equivalent) and mature applicants (aged 21 or over), together with their parents or supporters, to help them learn more about the University, its colleges, and its departments.

We also host two annual open days at Trinity Hall – one for Sciences, and one for Arts & Humanities – during which attendees have the chance to experience sample lectures, ask questions to current undergraduate students, and meet the Directors of Studies in their subject of interest. The 2024 Subject Open Days took place on 26 and 29 February 2024.

Prospective applicants are always welcome to visit us at Trinity Hall. For more information about visiting, see below. For more information about events offered at other colleges and across the wider university, please visit the University events listing page.

University Open Days

The University runs two Open Days in July each year, where prospective applicants and their parents or supporters can visit the colleges and departments. Due to their popularity, advance booking is required.

The 2024 July Open Days are taking place on Thursday 4 July and Friday 5 July, with booking opening in spring 2024.

There is also a September Open Day run by the University, although this year’s date has yet to be confirmed.

You can find out more information about all University Open Days here.

Staying up to date

Supporting potential applicants is incredibly important to us, especially those with little access to help and information related to their application. We run a variety of events each year for Years 8, 9, 10, 11, 12 and applicants, ranging from Open Days and Subject Tasters to webinars and residentials.

Going beyond what you learn at school and engaging with super-curricular resources is a great way to develop your knowledge of your subject and demonstrate your passion at interview.

Attendance at our events is not a requirement to apply to Trinity Hall. Those who apply without having attended one of these events are not at a disadvantage.
