In-person visits to Corpus Christi
At Corpus Christi, we are very pleased to be able to welcome visitors to the College! Visits to the College are prioritised for state schools within our link region (Manchester, Oldham, Salford, Stockport, Tameside, Trafford), but please do get in touch to check availability. We welcome visits from school students in Years 9 to 13 in groups of up to 25 (including teachers) per day. Our Outreach Team hosts each visit, which usually includes discussions about higher education and Oxford, a tour of the College, an academic taster session, and lunch in our historic dining hall.
School groups also get to quiz our undergraduate Subject Ambassadors about student life here. The Outreach Officer can also help you to combine a visit to Corpus with a tour of another college.

Virtual visits to Corpus Christi
Since 2020, Corpus Christi has been successfully adapting to the virtual world induced by the COVID-19 pandemic. Our Outreach and Admissions Team have been successfully running various virtual visits and we were delighted to run 14 virtual sessions with school groups over the 2021 Spring term, in spite of schools being closed for most pupils. Virtual visits are a great way for students to learn about Higher Education, gain an insight into life at Oxford, and to interact with current Corpus students.
Visits are conducted over Microsoft Teams and are generally 45 minutes, although they can be longer if you wish. Visits are tailored to students' ages. A standard introductory visit consists of a presentation about Higher Education/Oxford, a virtual tour, and a Q&A with Student Ambassadors. We can also cover study skills, run subject taster sessions, and provide workshops dedicated to specific stages of the Oxbridge application process, such as interviews. It is possible to do multiple sessions in order to cover the content that your students are interested in.
To book a virtual visit, please email the Outreach team.
Corpus Christi comes to you!
Each academic year, the Outreach Team aims to visit a variety of schools in the College's link region (Greater Manchester). These events are adapted to the age and audience and cover topics including higher education, studying at Oxford, the application process, student life and student finance.
For the 2023-2024 academic year, the Outreach Team will be visiting state school students in Year 12 in January 2024 and state school students in Years 10 & 11 in early March 2024. If you would like to register your interest in a visit, please complete the following booking form. Please note, we will not confirm outbound school visits until next academic year (around September/October 2023).
Individual tours of Corpus Christi
If you are a prospective applicant who is unable to visit Corpus Christi during an Open Day, we also offer individual college tours (subject to availability) during weekdays. If you would like a tour, please email email@example.com or call 01865 276693 for further details. Tours usually last around 30 minutes and we kindly ask that you contact the Outreach and Admissions Team with a least one week's notice.
