Open events at Oxford Continuing Education

Oxford Open Doors

Save the date!

As part of Oxford Open Doors, join us on Saturday 11 September 2021 for walking tours and short talks on lifelong learning.

Starting at Wellington Square, tours will include local and architectural history, archaeology – and even a ghostly walk! Short talks, taking place at Rewley House, will explore lifelong learning and discuss the wide range of courses available for adult learners at Oxford Continuing Education.

Registrations will open closer to the day of the event. Watch this space for more details!

To stay informed of future events and courses, sign up to our e-newsletter.

Open events for award courses

We hold evening and afternoon sessions for a number of our individual award and degree programmes. Each session is free and all are invited to attend. This is your opportunity to speak to Course Directors, find out more about the programme and ask questions. 

Open events for the next academic year (2021-22) will be announced later this summer.
