Durham University


Post-offer Visit Days

We are offering Virtual Post-offer Visit Days in 2021. Offer-holders will receive an email invitation to book in January so keep an eye out.

Our Post-offer Visit Days are an opportunity for those holding an offer with Durham University to sample their chosen course through live sample seminars, view and engage with their allocated college community, and get an insight into student life. The events will hopefully enable you to make an informed choice about your next steps in your application journey.

2021 Event Dates and Times

Our online platform will launch on Monday 15 February and will be accessible until Wednesday 12 May for you to browse the on-demand content. You can access the platform by booking to attend the event. The booking will then provide you with a link to the platform. You will receive an email to book following your offer, so please keep an eye out and contact us if you don't receive your invitation. We have live dates on Wednesday 17 February and Saturday 20 March where you can log in and participate in a schedule of activities. The event timings are as follows:

  • Student Life Activities - 10:00 - 13:00
  • Academic Activities - 13:00 - 16:00
  • College Activitites - 16:00 - 18:00

Discover Durham Tours will hopefully be running (subject to social distancing measures and if allowed by government guidance) from May 2021 (at the earliest). Offer-holders booking to attend the Post-offer Visit Day (POVD) can indicate an interest in Discover Durham Tours on their POVD booking and will receive priority access to the tours which will be subject to maximum group sizes.


If you have any questions please call us on 0191 334 1000 or fill out an enquiry form.
