Open Days, whether virtual or on-campus are the best way for you to find out about our teaching excellence, explore our award-winning facilities, and experience our distinctive college communities. The events generally run from 9:00 am until 4:00 pm and will give you the chance to explore your degree options, college choices and find out about the wider student experience and support services.

Other options

You can explore Durham City on your own with the help of our self-guided tour app which can be used either whilst at home, or when you arrive on campus. If you prefer to have a guided tour then we recommend our Discover Durham Tours led by students which take place at various times throughout the year.

Undergraduate - Ways to Visit

If you are interested in applying to Durham or already have an offer, we have plenty of ways for you to find out more, either by visiting the campus or joining us at one of our online events.

If you can’t attend an Open Day, the next best thing is our Discover Durham Tours which are led by our fantastic Student Ambassadors. They will tell you about academic and College life as well as taking you on a short tour of Durham City.  If you can't make any of the dates that our tours run on, don't worry, we also have a self-guided tour option! However you choose to visit we look forward to welcoming you.
