Post-offer Visit Days

We invite you to join us for our undergraduate post-offer visit days on Wednesday 14 February, Wednesday 20 March, and Saturday 27 April 2024. Come and find out about the eight languages you can study as a beginner or post A-level. You can also learn more about our BA in Visual Arts and Film. 

Discover our broad range of modules covering literature, visual culture, history, politics, translation, philosophy, and more. Learn about the year abroad and the enhanced employability that a degree in Modern Languages from Durham will give you.  
As well as general presentations about the department as a whole, you are welcome to attend language-specific sessions where you’ll meet staff and students. In these taster sessions, you’ll gain a sense of what it’s like to explore new materials, and to develop your own ideas and voice.

 Every session will include time for a Q&A, so please don’t hesitate to ask us anything about what your time at Durham would involve. We have scheduled repeat sessions to maximise flexibility for you on your visit.  

If you have any questions about the Modern Languages programmes, please feel free to email the School’s admissions officer Professor Tom Wynn at
