Applicants for full-time first degree programmes (e.g. BA, BSc, MEng, MPhys, MSci,) should apply through the Universities and Colleges Admissions Service (UCAS). You should also do this if you have completed part of a degree at another institution or are seeking direct entry to the second year of one of our programmes.
You should make your UCAS application using one of the electronic methods of application provided by UCAS. For further details please visit the UCAS website at www.ucas.com. If you are unable to apply electronically you should contact UCAS for assistance on +44 (0)871 468 0 468.
You may apply to a maximum of five programmes. The UCAS code for Durham is D86. You may apply to programmes located in either Durham City or Queen's Campus, Stockton or both. You will need to enter the UCAS code of each course you wish to apply for (these codes are listed in the fact box at the start of each departmental entry, and in the programme index in this prospectus) as well as the campus code for your preferred college. Applying to the same programme at more than one college will not increase your chances of receiving an offer, but will limit the number of other programmes you can apply to and therefore you are recommended not to do this. If you wish to apply to more than one programme at the University you are encouraged to use the same College preference for each application, unless the programmes are delivered on different campuses.
When you have completed your UCAS application, you should arrange for a reference to be provided and for the application (with appropriate registration fee) to be forwarded to UCAS. UCAS will notify you when they receive your application and will then forward printed copies of your application to your chosen universities.
We will write to you to let you know that we have received your application and have started processing it. Please note that this can be a few weeks after sending your application to UCAS.
