Why choose Durham University?
UCAS are currently experiencing difficulties with the way results are returned for Durham University in UCAS Course Search. Not all relevant courses at every institution may be returned and there are inconsistencies in the order that search results are reported (these are not always in alphabetical order). For a number of courses Durham University is listed towards the very end of listings and for some others relevant Durham University courses are not returned at all by a search. Applicants are therefore advised to check all results pages on UCAS Course Search and to check on our website if their chosen course is not listed on UCAS Course Search, to ensure they are fully aware of all the opportunities open to them.
