Selection Process for Postgraduate Taught Applications

At Durham we consider all applications in line with our Postgraduate Admissions Policy.  We aim to make decisions within 6-8 weeks of receiving your application, sometimes sooner, though decisions may take longer during very busy periods. 

After you’ve applied, one of our trained admissions selectors will consider your application, including your qualifications, personal statement and references. If we need further information from you, we will contact you via your Applicant Portal.  You will also be able to see details of any interviews you may have to attend (if part of the selection process for the course you have applied for) through the portal.
