We are delighted that you are able to come to the Post-Offer Visit Day. The structure of the Natural Sciences open day is bespoke for each applicant and we will contact you by email with your personalised schedule no later than one week prior the event. We would recommend that if you have a mobile device with roaming data features that you bring it along to help navigate your way around Durham. If you have any questions, then please don't hesitate to get in touch prior to visiting. I hope you have an uneventful and safe trip to Durham where I look forward to giving you a warm welcome.
Professor James Blowey (Deputy Executive Dean and Director of Natural Sciences)
The key characteristics of the Natural Sciences degree at Durham are choice, flexibility and depth.
The Natual Sciences degree programme is a flexible degree with a wide choice of subjects and a range of modules within each subject.
Unfortunately, we are unable to accommodate guests in the department sessions.
We encourage guests to take the opportunity to see some of the facilities that Durham University has to offer, such as the Bill Bryson Library and Sports and Wellbeing Park. Guests may also wish to visit some of the public attractions that are close by, such as the Botanic Gardens, Durham Castle and Cathedral, and Oriental Museum. There are also plenty of woodland and river paths to walk and explore the surroundings of the department.
Guests are also welcome to drop-in to speak to central services during the event at the Palatine Centre and the Information Hub.
