Congratulations on receiving an offer to study with us at Durham University!
As members of the Department, we are pleased to welcome you to the Post-offer Visit Day. We would also like to extend a warm welcome to Durham to the guests of offer-holders, though – with a view to room capacity – it may not be possible to participate in the academic taster sessions.
Guests are encouraged to visit our Information Fair in the Teaching and Learning Centre between 9:30 am – 1.30 pm. Below you will find further information about the days' schedule, and what you can expect.
Our Post-offer Visit Day events will be held in the Pemberton Building, Room PG21, which is located on Palace Green (right next door to the home of the Department of Theology and Religion).
We look forward to meeting you!
