Supported Progression

Supported Progression is a programme for talented students studying in the North East, Cumbria and Yorkshire 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.

Supported Progression offers a two-year coherent, structured programme of events and information. This includes the opportunity to take part in our residential events, experiencing life as a Durham University student. Those who successfully complete the assessed summer school project at the end of Year 12 will be recognised as having achieved a qualification equivalent to 16-32 UCAS tariff points that can contribute towards meeting the entry requirements for a programme of study at Durham University, along with a guaranteed offer. Successful students may also be eligible to receive additional bursaries towards university costs.

Applications for the 2016/17 Supported Progression Programme are now closed as the deadline for applications was 1st December 2016.
