Open Day 2023 Banner

Open Days

Open Days are a great way to find out more about life at Pembroke and whether it might be the place for you - we'd love to meet you and show you around!

Our final 2023 Open Day will be held on Friday 15th September and information about the events we will be running and the timetable can be found below.

If you're not able to visit us in-person this year, we hope that our website provides everything you need to know about living and studying as part of the Pembroke community. 

During the September Open Day we will have:

Making a Competitive Application for Medicine session: 14.30 - 15.15 (booking required)

Want to know more about making a competitive application to Oxford? Have a question you can't find the answer to online? Want to see what a Medicine interview at Oxford looks like?

Our Tutor for Medicine at Pembroke College, Dr Lois Brand, will be giving her top tips for making an application for Medicine and conducting a mock interview with a current student, to help you better understand the Oxford admissions process and how to make a great application. There will be time for you to ask your questions at the end too!

We recommend that you book a ticket in advance to make sure that you are guaranteed a space at this talk!

We ask that only prospective applicants book a space on a talk. We may be able to accommodate parents and supporters on the day once applicants have taken their seats for the session.

To book to attend, please reserve your free place here.

Informal ‘drop in’ Subject Tutor sessions: 13:00 – 17:00 (no booking required)

Our Subject Tutors will be available during the Open Days for informal meetings with prospective applicants to answer questions about the subjects we offer at Pembroke. This is a brilliant opportunity if you have a question about a course, teaching at Oxford, or are trying to decide which course might be for you. 

They will be located in the Pichette Auditorium, and you will be taken here at the end of a student tour of college. You can also ask for directions to the Pichette at the welcome desk in the Porters Lodge.
