Pre-application Open Days

You can get a taste of what Durham University and Grey College has to offer by attending one of the pre-application events we run.

These events will provide an opportunity for those interested in Durham University to gain a real insight into the Durham student experience. Departments, colleges and other student support services and facilities will be available for talks, tours and demonstrations. There is also likely to be a limited amount of University managed accommodation available. Places will be limited and therefore pre-booking will be required. For further information please see the University's 'Visit Us' pages.

There will be an opportunity to meet Grey staff and students, and to view our facilities.

For those who are unable to attend one the open days, the college provides smaller scale opportunities to visit Grey, please see below for further information.


In some cases, applicants are invited to an interview by their academic department. If this happens we may be able to offer you overnight accommodation in College. This is a great opportunity for you to find out more about living in College and what it’s like as a student at Durham. Our current students will make you feel welcome and will be happy to show you round and answer any questions you might have. One of our students will also take you to your department on the day of your interview.

Not all students we accept are invited to inverview and for those, we run pre and post-application open days.
