Higher Education Advisers' Conference 2017

This conference is provided every year, free of charge and is designed to support colleagues who work in schools and sixth form colleges and who play a key role advising students about higher education choices and admission. All schools are welcome to send representatives.
The conference took place on 9th and 10th January 2017 at Collingwood College. This two-day residential event provides opportunities for delegates to meet with staff in our academic departments and colleges. It also provides the opportunity for delegates to gain first-hand experience of college life by dining and staying in a Durham college.

This conference is completely free of charge. The package includes refreshments, meals (including a formal college dinner), and overnight accommodation in one of our colleges.

The programme includes in-depth academic sessions from many of our departments, an update on Durham Admissions and information on our collegiate system

The conference aims to:

• increase awareness and understanding of our admissions process;

• provide updates on our range of undergraduate study programmes;

• deepen understanding of how our colleges enhance the student experience;

• support you in advising your students;

• provide opportunities to network and share ideas with colleagues;

• strengthen the relationship between Durham University and your school/college.
