Classics and Ancient History FAQs
Do you have an Open Day for prospective applicants?
We have an Open Day every summer; for details, see this page.
I cannot attend the Open Day. When can I visit the department?
Can I visit during the summer?
Summer is not the best time for a prospective student to visit Durham. The town is quiet in the absence of students and the department is often empty. Summer is when academic members of staff concentrate on research and they are often away from Durham at conferences and archives or buried in the library. If you happen to come to Durham during the summer, the departmental office is open during business hours, and you are welcome to stop by and ask if there is anyone available to speak to you, but this cannot be guaranteed.
