Open Days & Visits

The best way to find out more about living and studying at Durham University is to come on one of our pre-application open days.

We run pre-application open days in both Durham City and at Queen's Campus.

  • Monday 22nd June, 2015
  • Saturday 27th June, 2015
  • Saturday 26th September, 2015
  • Friday 19th June, 2015
  • Saturday 19th September, 2015

For further details about University open days please refer to the central open day pages.

There are several scheduled opportunities to visit the Department both before and after you apply for our degree programmes.

Applicants are also welcome to visit the Department but we cannot always guarantee that a member of staff will be able to speak to, especially during term time.

Post-Offer Open Days

If you apply and are made an offer you will have the opportunity to attend a University Post-Offer Open Day. As part of these Open Days you will be invited to the Geography Department and will hear about our degree structure and programme followed by a question and answer session. There will also be a demonstration of our online learning technologies and a mini-lecture from one of our staff. Current / recent students will also be on hand to offer insight from their experience and all applicants will be taken on a tour of the Department, followed by refreshments and an opportunity for more informal discussions with staff and students.

  • Event One: Monday 16th / Tuesday 17th March, 2015
  • Event Two: Tuesday 17th / Wednesday 18th March, 2015

Event One: College activity will take place on Monday PM / evening with academic department sessions offered on Tuesday AM / PM.
