Pre-application Open Days

You can get a taste of what Durham University and St Mary's College has to offer by attending one of our pre-application open days. The University will be offering the following pre-application open days in Durham City 2019:

  • Monday, 1 July 2019
  • Saturday, 6 July 2019
  • Friday, 20 September 2019
  • Saturday, 21 September 2019

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 support services and facilities will be available for talks, tours and demonstrations. There will be an opportunity to meet our College staff and view our facilities. 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 to attend a pre-application open day. The booking system will open approximately six weeks in advance of the open days. We do expect our open days to be very busy; you are advised to book early to avoid disappointment.
