Pre-application open days

The university holds pre-application campus wide open days, usually in late June and in September.

During the open days there will be separate talks and tours for Computer Science and for Engineering. The talk session will give you information about the subject, how it is taught at Durham and why we think they are excellent degrees. The tours will show you some of our facilities and give you an opportunity to see demonstrations of students' work. We would encourage you to sign up for both a talk session and a tour.

Details of open day dates and booking are available below:

You will also be able to sign up for campus tours and talks on student life and finance.

Alternatives to pre-application open days

The best way to see the School is via the open days but if you cannot attend these open days for any reason, please contact us at There are a number of dates when it is possible to attend a campus tour ( and a good approach is to book on a campus tour and arrange to visit the school for the same day.

Post Application open days

Students holding Durham offers will be invited to open days which take place in March each year. These open days will provide you with the opportunity to stay overnight in a college and to come into the School to learn more about the degree programmes.
