Choosing University College
We encourage you to nominate a preferred college using one of the UCAS college codes in your UCAS application. The college you choose will not in any way affect your chances of getting an offer from the University; that decision is made by your academic department. University College is often oversubscribed, so your application may be passed on to another College.
If you prefer not to select a college, the University can select one for you on your behalf. This is known as making an open application.
If you would like to choose University College as your preferred college, please do this by entering "DUR/U" in the appropriate place on your UCAS form.
