Congratulations and welcome!
Congratulations on securing your place to read Music at Durham University! We very much look forward to welcoming you in October and to working with you over the coming three years.
We pride ourselves on our excellence in research and teaching and we are all looking forward to you joining us. The Durham Music community is a lively, friendly group of people including undergraduates, postgraduates and staff, committed to the pursuit of musical knowledge. You will be an integral part of life in the Department.
Enrolment opens eight weeks before the start of your programme. After your acceptance has been processed you will receive two emails from firstname.lastname@example.org which provide:
- Your Computing and Information Services (CIS) username
- How to derive your CIS password and guidance on how to access the system
The messages are sent 24 hours apart and are sent to the email address you provided when you applied so it's important to let us know of any changes to this information by contacting the Student Records Team at email@example.com. You may also need to monitor your spam folders to see if the messages have arrived there.
After you have received both emails you will need to:
- Change your password
- Log into Durham University Online - duo https://duo.dur.ac.uk
- Choose the "Banner Self Service" link in duo under "External Tools"
- Choose Registration and Enrolment
- Enrol with the University
- Upload a photograph for your campus card
You will receive information from your department about registering for your programme and modules. You should follow the advice given about whether to complete registration for programmes and modules before you come to Durham, or whether to wait until you arrive before making final choices, so that your department can give you further advice and information.
Module registration is a two-stage process which includes:
- Selection of modules
- Approval of modules
The first stage is where you confirm your programme of study and choose your optional modules. The second stage of the process is where department(s) approve your choice of modules.
More information on module registration can be found at: https://www.dur.ac.uk/student.registry/student/registration/modreg/
More information specific to Music students can be found here.
Your first week in Durham - Induction Timetable
We have put together a schedule of activities which will take place from Wednesday 28 September for International students and from Monday 3rd - Friday 7th October for home undergraduates.
Use the Online Induction Planner to plan your first week's activities by College and Department.
The Online Induction Planner has been designed to let you know where you need to be and when, according to your Department and College Induction activities and events.
Attendance of all department-based activities is compulsory and we have tried to plan the week's activities so that wherever possible they do not clash with any other college, university or sport commitment, many of which are repeated to allow you several opportunities to take place.
All members of the Department of Music are looking forward to meeting you in October. Should you have any questions on any of the above, please contact Mrs Karen Nichol, Departmental Administrator.
