Post-Offer Visit Days

Our Post-offer Visit Days are an opportunity for those holding an offer with Durham University to sample their chosen course through live sample seminars, view and engage with their allocated college community, and get an insight into student life. The events will hopefully enable you to make an informed choice about your next steps in your application journey.
