Undergraduates on a fieldtrip

Visit the department, meet students and discover what it is like to study Geography at Oxford.

The School of Geography and the Environment holds an annual Department Open Day in early June, for which bookings are taken on a first-come first-served basis. The School also participates in the wider Oxford Open Days which take place on two days in late June/July and on one day in mid-September, and there is no need to book for these.

On all Open Days you can attend a short talk followed by a question-and-answer session, and see displays about the course and past field trips. The dates for all the Open Days are posted early in the year on our website, along with other details.
