Consent Matters Online Course

Consent Matters Oracle Learning Banner

Durham University recognises the significant impact of all experiences of sexual misconduct or violence and is committed to promoting a culture in which sexual violence is not tolerated and will be addressed. To achieve this, all members of our University have a responsibility for upholding the principles of dignity and respect. Before the conclusion of Induction Week, all new students are therefore expected to complete the online course, 'Consent Matters; Boundaries, Respect and Positive Intervention', which is available on Oracle Learning before participation in College-based clubs, societies or committees and the wider student experience. Access to Oracle Learning will be available to you upon completion of your University registration.

During Welcome and Orientation Week, we will require you to confirm that you have, or will, complete this course. Questions about the course should be directed to the Student Support Office who will be happy to discuss the course with you. We hope that all students will find the course interesting and commit to maintaining our valued culture of respect at Durham University.

The University's Sexual Misconduct and Violence Policy and Procedure can be found here

Medical Registration Form

All new students can register with the Claypath and University Medical Group before arrival via a quick and easy to complete online form. The form uses drop down lists for student accommodation with the Colleges or private providers; if you have other accommodation please enter your address in Durham. The form also asks whether you have an NHS number or not, and you will only have a number if you have previously registered with a doctor in the UK, but you can still complete this online registration if you are an overseas student and don’t already have an NHS number.

Registering early ensures that your new medical practice knows about you before you arrive, can set you up on their systems and be aware of any current medical issues. It also means that any UK NHS notes get transferred early to the practice so they have a full knowledge of your medical history, will be able to take over the prescribing of any medication and understand any further immunisations you might need.

Overseas Meet and Greet Service

For OVERSEAS STUDENTS ONLY. The International Office organises a coach transfer service as part of their 'Meet and Greet Service'. International students will need to book online to register for this service. If you have queries regarding visa applications, requirements or PBS checking, these should be directed to the International Office.

Verification of Identity 

Before you can collect your campus card, we need sight of proof of your identity.  Please bring with you to Durham one of the following as proof of identity:

  • current Passport
  • current UK Driving Licence
  • current European Identity Card.

If you are a UK student and you do not have either of these forms of identification, you may bring instead your original Birth Certificate.

Information on the verification process will be communicated to you in due course.

Environmental Sustainability

At Durham University we’re developing new ways of thinking, shaping a better future for people and planet… but we can’t do it alone. Together we can make an impact.

We are committed to reducing our environmental impact and improving the local environment. Greenspace was created in 2010 to bring together all of Durham University’s environmental plans, policies and procedures. It has been an incredible journey: from first launching the Green Move Out in 2005 and establishing the first Carbon Management Plan, to more recently achieving the Platinum Eco Campus award in 2020. We’ve pulled all the key information on living sustainably at Durham University ranging from how to recycle to how we’re tackling climate change, find out more over on our Sway. Let’s start the Greenspace Movement!
