Durham University


Access and scholarships


If you can benefit from studying music at Durham we aim to help you to study here, and we take part in two schemes run by the university for this purpose.

  • Supported Progression is a scheme for talented students studying in the north-east who have the potential to study at a university like Durham and who will benefit from additional help and support to reach their full potential.
  • Foundation Centre courses prepare students for our BA courses who have not had the opportunity to study for the required A-level grades.
