These webpages provide a short introduction to life at Durham University, including:
Colleges (student accomodation)
Who can tell you what student life is like better than a current student? Our students have created blogs and videos to tell you about their experiences. They've even answered some of those important questions like: "How did you decide on your degree subject?" to help you think about your own plans.
In fact, you can even connect with a student and ask them your own specific questions about university life!
Our graduates have applied to university, completed their degree and gone on to have new and exciting careers! They share their experiences of how university helped them to prepare for the world of work and develop their skills.
We know that it has been a challenging time over the last few months, and it can be hard to get motivated and concentrate when you're studying at home. We share some of our top tips to help you, and suggest some extra support available for free online too.
We have pre-recorded shortened versions of the presentations we are regularly asked to deliver to Year 10 - 13s in schools and colleges. We hope these session videos will help you learn about Durham University, the application process and life as a student.
