Upcoming Open Days in 2023
We’re excited to welcome you back to Hertford College for our in-person Open Days on 28 June, 29 June, and 15 September 2023. We will be open from 10:00-17:30. You can find our programme for the day below. No booking is required for our events, though please note that there will be limited spaces available at some sessions so these will be offered on a first come, first served basis.
