Join us for an online Subject Taster Lecture (image shows students working together on a laptop)

We're running a series of subject taster lectures for students looking to apply to university - whether that's Durham or elsewhere! - in a range of different subject areas. Lectures are led by academic staff who teach at Durham. Sessions are followed by the opportunity to ask questions on the lecture topic.

So, whether you've studied the subject before or it's something brand new, join us for our taster lectures to explore what it's like studying at university!
