    Anyone applied for Chinese/Japanese that has heard back from Durham yet?
    Hi! Chinese applicant here. Nothing yet, sadly.
    When I emailed them in December, they told me the best they could say was we
    SHOULD know before 31st March, and it was entirely down to the department.
    When I called last week to find out if they could possibly enlighten me as to an expected time-frame now deadline was passed, I was told exactly the same thing.

    Does anyone know, if I do get an offer, whether I'd be able to defer it? I applied early october and since then, opportunities came up which I'd want to take up. The thought of reapplying next year is pretty daunting indeed!

    It may depend on how relevant it is to your course and how flexible your department is. For example, I applied for Spanish and Arabic and got an offer. I was then offer then chance to work at an international law firm for a gap year so emailed to ask if I could defer but they said no... :/ going straight to uni as too scared to gamble with my place lol

    Just out of interest, where did you find the placement at the law firm? Is it in the UK?
