Open Days & Visits

Undergraduate - Ways to Visit

If you are interested in applying to Durham or already have an offer, we have plenty of ways for you to find out more, either by visiting the campus or joining us at one of our online events.

If you can’t attend an Open Day, the next best thing is our Discover Durham Tours which are led by our fantastic Student Ambassadors. They will tell you about academic and College life as well as taking you on a short tour of Durham City.  If you can't make any of the dates that our tours run on, don't worry, we also have a self-guided tour option! However you choose to visit we look forward to welcoming you.

Open Days and Visits

Undergraduate Open Days

Our first set of Open Days for 2023 will be held on Friday 16 June and Saturday 17 June 2023. 

When deciding on whether Durham is right for you we recommend you think about the degrees we offer, our Colleges, and the wider student experience such as sport, theatre, music and volunteering.  All of this, along with the support that is available to you as a student, will help you decide whether to apply to us. You can find out about everything we offer at our Open Days. 

Don't worry if you can't make it to either of the June Open Days - we will be holding 2 more Open Days in September 2023. 

Postgraduate Open Days

Our Open Days are the best way to explore your postgraduate study options at Durham. Whether you’re interested in Taught or Research Masters, or even PhD, you can join us to connect with academic staff and current students, get guidance on applying and funding, discover our colleges and find out where a postgraduate degree can take you. Find out more about our upcoming Open Days.

Other options

You can explore Durham City on your own with the help of our self-guided tour app which can be used either whilst at home, or when you arrive on campus. If you prefer to have a guided tour then we recommend our Discover Durham Tours led by students which take place at various times throughout the year.

Whichever way you choose to visit we are sure you will receive a warm welcome! Register Your Interest to keep up to date with what is happening at Durham.

The collegiate structure is a defining characteristic of Durham University. It’s extremely reassuring to be part of an active, close-knit community with a vested interest in your welfare and development, both in your career and personal life.
