Wadham College - Virtual Open Day 2020

Message from the Warden

Due to the Coronavirus and the consequent cancellation of our open days, we are massively disappointed not to be able to welcome prospective candidates, their families and teachers to our open days. We understand what a useful experience open days are for those trying to decide on which college to apply to. However, with the help of our staff and students, we have collated some materials below which we hope you will find useful.

There will be the opportunity for you to text your questions directly to either our students ambassadors or our admissions staff live via the University's Wadham College Virtual Open Day page. The student sessions will be manned from 10 am - 5 pm (with a break of one hour from 1 pm); the admissions staff will be available to answer questions all day from 9 am to 5 pm. 

If you have any questions that are not addressed in the materials provided here, or are too complex to pose via the live text Q & A, please feel free to email our Admissions Office: admissions@wadham.ox.ac.uk

With all good wishes,

Ken Macdonald, Warden

College Tour 360

Open days are usually a great opportunity for would-be students to explore the College's facilities in detail. Since we are unable to offer this service at the moment, why don't you take the 360 degree Wadham tour here?

Here are a few specific links to 360 views around the College:
