Deciding what to, and where to, study are two very important decisions that you need to make. Before applying to our undergraduate programmes, we encourage you to visit Durham University and ECS. All universities are different in one way or another but Durham is especially different. Our open days and informal tours to enable you to experience the 'Durham Difference' for yourself. We aim to give a comprehensive introduction to the School and and its courses, and are always happy to answer your individual questions at any time.
If you are planning to apply for our degree programmes then you will need to apply through UCAS. Students who have already applied can track the progress of their application through the UCAS Track service. If you need to chase up your application or have questions please ask us at firstname.lastname@example.org - we don't bite!
Applicants for deferred entry are treated in a virtually identical manner to those who apply for normal entry. It is essential to explain what you intend to do in your year out from education in your UCAS personal statement and how this will benefit you and your ability to study at University.
Year in industry scheme
The 'Year in Industry' scheme organises industrial placements for engineering students between school and university - which is a very worthy thing to do if you are taking a year out! Further details can be found on the Year in Industry website.
Feedback is available to candidates who are unsuccessful in any stage of the admissions process. Feedback will only be given in writing and can only be given to the applicant themselves, we do not give feedback to teachers or parents. Note that it is University policy to prioritise resources on applicants still in the Durham system so it may take us some time to answer. Please write, quoting your UCAS number, to email@example.com.
