The Schools Development Team is a part of the University's Student Recruitment and Admissions Office. Our aim is to support the progression of academically able students and to build and maintain a strong sense of partnership and a lasting relationship with teachers in schools around the country. We are committed to raising the aspirations of school and college students and encouraging them to fulfil their potential.
We believe that good liaison work with schools is based on a strong sense of partnership and we would like to work with HE advisers and teachers to achieve this. The Schools Development Team offers a range of services including school talks and conferences, more information can be found under the ‘What We Offer’ tab. If you would like to contact us, please click on the ‘Contact Us’ tab above. Alternatively, if we have visited your school recently and you would like to let us know how it went, please click on ‘Leave Feedback’.
"You were absolutely first class in engaging with the audience - giving them an excellent impression of life at Durham and explaining with great clarity (and well judged humour) various aspects of the application process. There is no doubt that many left full of enthusiasm for pushing on with their application plans."
