    It says on the Law PhD page (I think) that you don't get to choose a college. Tbh I'm not *that* fussed, but my undergrad uni and my masters uni didn't have colleges so it's kinda exciting
    Well I hope you get assigned a college you love and enjoy your time at Durham

    Thanks it's looking to be my top choice at the moment but it's really far from home so I am a bit hesitant, and of course depends on funding. But fingers crossed!

    Durham tends to leave their offers till quite late (I got mine in March) and applied in September like you. No one in Chemistry gets offer before around March. Not sure about other subjects

    You could visit, there is a section on the website that lists facts about the college. If you PM me the sort of person you are and what you want out of a college I could recommend one for you to look into
