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

Participants at our study days attend talks and workshops led by tutors, find out more about the course at Oxford and what tutors are looking for, and meet current St John's students. We often issue some preparatory reading in advance of our study days which will then form the basis of the seminars.

Our study days are often oversubscribed and selection is based on academic merit, using GCSE performance. Participants must be predicted to achieve at least AAA at A level (or equivalent). Places are generally limited to two per school/college, although larger establishments may be offered more places.

All study days are free of charge, and include a free lunch at St John’s. Students must make their own travel arrangements to and from Oxford. Please note that we are not able to provide parking facilities so students are encouraged to travel to Oxford by public transport.

Theology Study Day, 6 October 2018

St John's is holding a Theology Study Day on Saturday 6 October 2018. The event is open only to school students currently in Year 12, entering Year 13 in September 2018, who have entered the Theology Essay Competition.  

It will provide an insight into College life and a chance to meet the Theology tutors and some current students. The essay prizes will be announced on the day and there will be an opportunity to see manuscripts in the College Library, to learn the Hebrew alphabet and to create a manuscript of your own on parchment. There will be a tour of the College, of the new Library and Study Centre, and lunch in Hall. If you have any questions, please contact

" 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.
