Study Days at St John's offer high-achieving Year 12 students at non-selective state schools an opportunity to experience higher level study in their chosen subject.

Virtual Study Days offer talks and workshops led by tutors, a chance to find out more about the course at Oxford and what tutors are looking for, and hear from some current St John's students. We often issue some preparatory reading in advance of our Virtual Study Days which will then form the basis of the seminars. 

Capacity for our Virtual Study Days is greater than that for in-person events. However, where events are oversubscribed, selection is based on academic merit, using GCSE or National 5 performance. Participants must be predicted to achieve at least AAA at A level or AAAAB/AAAAA in Scottish Highers (or equivalent). Where candidates from the Scottish system can offer Advanced Highers we would expect AA (for two subjects) or AAB (for three subjects). Places are generally limited to two per school/college, although larger establishments may be offered more places. 

All Virtual Study Days are free of charge. Where possible, talks and other sessions will be recorded and uploaded so that students may access the sessions at a time convenient to them.

University-wide study days

Many other colleges and departments organise study days throughout the year. For a full-listing of events see Outreach Events.

Although no in-person events are possible due to the ongoing Covid-19 public health situation, St John's College will be releasing a range of remote events over the coming months. 

We are delighted to be able to offer some of our Study Days in an online format, as highlighted above. If you have any questions, please get in touch using the options above.

" I enjoyed the day very much and would recommend others to try it! It was really fun meeting people who are as passionate about German as I am. I'm glad I had the chance to hear about what the Oxford students and professors/tutors had to say about their courses because it made the thought of studying there less daunting.
