Congratulations on getting a place amongst the physics student cohort at Durham! This is a time of personal development and there are lots of opportunities for you to get involved. From casual to intense participation, you will find clubs and societies based around lots of hobbies, cultures, courses and more. You can look forward to an excellent physics course taught by brilliant academic staff. We are always striving to improve, so if you have any feedback please contact your representatives!
We are finalising our plans for induction and will make more information available by the end of August. At that stage you will gain access to induction information via Blackboard (the University’s Virtual Learning Environment).
Information, including advice on module choices, will be made available by the end of August. You will need to submit your optional module choices in advance of your arrival in Durham and by Friday 17 September, in the online registration system. For the time being, please do not worry about this – no action is needed until September.
