The Grey College Virtual Open Day

We couldn’t hold the Open Days, but you can still have a look at what we do

Welcome from the College Master (Prof. Tom Allen) and Vice-Master (Dr Peter Swift)

We would both loved to have welcomed you to our Visit Days, but as we have been unable to run them, we have produced this virtual site. We hope you enjoy finding out about life here at Grey College!

There's lots of content and videos here, put together by both staff and students to give you a flavour of what Grey is really like.

Peter has provided the attached document, detailing some of what he would normally talk about on the Visit Days.
