Open Days

Our Open Days are intended to provide prospective candidates with information about the College and its undergraduate admissions procedures.

CORONAVIRUS UPDATE: Please note that all in-person admissions related events at Emmanuel College have been cancelled until at least the end of May 2021 and the College is closed to all visitors. We will, however, be hosting virtual sessions this year (dates will appear below). Take a look through the films below, which were recorded in the summer of 2020.


Wednesday 31 March (all subjects - virtual session) - bookings are now closed; Saturday 1 May (Maths - virtual: morning with the College and afternoon with the Faculty) - bookings are now closed; Thursday 8 and Friday 9 July (University open days; the College will be participating); Thursday 16 and Friday 17 September (University open days; the College will be participating).


The University open days will take place on Thursday 8 and Friday 9 July 2021. We do not know at this stage whether we will be able to host in-person sessions. Booking information will appear on the University's open day page in early Spring, but you can register now to be entered on the mailing list. In the meantime, the University's virtual tour is available and Emmanuel has a College tour below, which was filmed for the virtual open days in September 2020 and includes a look around the accommodation

If you have any questions, please email the Admissions Officer.

College Photos

A selection of views from around the College. Some of the photos have been taken by Aida Miralaei, a PhD student at the College, and we are very grateful to her for allowing us to use them.


Please contact the Admissions Officer in advance, if you require any specific arrangements to be made during your visit to the College, e.g., room accessibility.


We would advise all prospective candidates to familiarise themselves with the full details of the courses, which are available on the Departmental and Faculty pages, as these may provide helpful background reading for discussions with Directors of Studies and Admissions Tutors.

PLEASE NOTE: The College is currently closed to visitors.

The College is usually open daily from 9am to 6pm for members of the public to wander through the grounds. You do not need to book to have a general look around, but we advise you to email in advance and check that the College is definitely open. During your visit, you can call into the Porters’ Lodge (main entrance, St Andrew’s Street) to pick up copies of the College and Alternative prospectuses.
