Durham is a competitive university, because our entry criteria are extremely high, but you might be surprised by how many offers we give out. The table below shows the number of Home/EU applicants to each programme last year and the percentage who received an offer. In some instances, if we felt an applicant wasn't quite right for the programme they'd applied to or we saw potential in another area, we may have given an offer for an alternative programme; this data is also included below.
