Congratulations on becoming one of our Combined Social Sciences freshers and welcome to the department! We’re looking forward to meeting you in person during Welcome and Orientation Week, and will be posting some video content about the programme for you to watch over the summer before we meet.
When you arrive in Durham, we have a live session on the first day of Welcome and Orientation week where you’ll meet me and your Combined Social Sciences peer mentor as well as other students studying similar combinations of subjects to you. We’ll also organise some online coffee mornings in September where you can drop in to have a chat with other new students and ask us any questions you might have.
Professor Megan BruceDirector
Durham’s Combined Social Sciences department offers incredible flexibility and inclusiveness. By being elected as a departmental representative, I was able to raise any issue related to academics or EDI… From the perspective of an international student, my voice was always heard and respected, and I was fully supported and encouraged to do my best.
We'll email you late August with further details about the welcome session and module selection to help you before you join us. During induction week, you will meet the CHSS Director, Deputy Director and Administrator as well as your Peer Mentor and fellow CHSS students.
The Timetable has been designed so College events don’t clash with any of your academic departmental events, but offer you lots of opportunities to meet your fellow Freshers, find your way around and settle into student life.
Check out our student blogs to read more about life at Durham from our students. Don't forget to follow us on social media!
If you have any queries about any of this information or any aspect of coming to Durham please contact us.
