    Thanks a ton for that. My cousin just graduated from St. A and in terms of location and the general night life he said it really isn't as bad as people make it sound. Also he really really partied there.
    So for me I guess the decision will come down to where the teaching is better. And it really helped to hear the philosophy and politics lecturers are brilliant in durham, since I am doing PPE.
    In terms of prestige back home, unfortunately both are as unrecognised. Somehow Indian's only know London universities with a few exceptions. So I don't think that'll be much of a factor in my decision.
    Ugh, I hate being this confused.

    I think the social side of at Andrews depends on who you are. It only has 1-2(?) clubs and is very small. If you prefer the 'American' campus party stuff then St. Andrews will be fine, but if you want variety you'll have to take much longer train rides than you would at Durham.

    Wooo! same here! It's gonna be so much fun since it's such a small college!

    I know, the feel of it is going to be so lovely, like a little community! I couldn't believe my luck, I really wanted to be on the Bailey!

    Hey, sorry to but in,
    I've applied for arch & anth at Durham via referral, I was just wondering how accommodation/colleges would work? If I get an offer, do I get assigned a college or can I choose still?
    Thanks
    Hi
    I'm in a similar position. Have you heard anything back yet? When did you apply via referral?

    Thanks

    Hi. I don't know about how referrals work. Did you apply through UCAS? If so you would have had to put a college down.

    Has anyone who's booked onto a residential open day been able to find out what time we'd have to arrive in Durham on the night we're staying there? I'm considering booking onto my college's (Van Mildert) residential open day but I live in the South East so I'd like to find out when I'd have to be there to sort out my transport arrangements.

    Alternatively, if no one knows, is there a way of potentially finding out? Thanks!

    I'm pretty sure you have to arrive between two and six, at least thats what it seems to suggest in the post offer day open guide https://www.dur.ac.uk/resources/unde..._FULLGUIDE.pdf
    Hope this helps!

    It says on the Open Day guide on the website (look specifically at Van Mildert). It varies slightly by college but generally plan to arrive 4pm

    :five:Very pleased,too as CUTH's was the college I applied for
    We still have time to decide, for the moment I am mostly considering catered for the first year(lazy girl).In this case Bailey should be the best solution.

    I'm reading Chemistry (MChem) and have been allocated to my preferred choice, Chads!

    I've not heard of anybody who has applied to another college and been reallocated to Chads. Could that be because it's already so over subscribed?

    Also, has anyone set up a Facebook group yet for others allocated to Chads? I feel it would be great to get to know other people before we go.
