Pre-Application Open Days

You can get a taste of what Durham University and Trevelyan 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 an 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. For further information please see the University's 'Visit Us' pages

Individual College Tour

This is the best way of seeing all the College facilities if you are unable to come one of the University Pre Application Open Days. These tours are usually at 11.30am and 3.00pm each weekday, (Monday to Friday) but there is some flexibility on these times. If you plan to do the one of the University Campus Tours which take place on Wednesday afternoons, it may be possible to visit after you have done the tour. For all College tours it is advisable to contact the College Admissions Office in advance to confirm availability.
