I got my letter yesterday, which course were u doing before u reapplied? I was doing Psychology and Sociology joint honours but that got withdrawn so now Im doing combined Social Sciences coz u can do psy and soc within that. I reapplied mid nov, so dont worry u will prob get letter soon if i reapplied slightly b4 u! I read Durham interview policies and apparently all combined social sciences applicants get interviewed! So dont worry! What college etc did u apply to? Let me know if u hear anything! xx

i applied for european studies with spanish only they cancelled that, so i looked in the prospectus to see the alternatives. now, i really wanted to do spanish with some other subject, so i e-mailled the combined honours department and they advised me to reapply into social sciences rather than arts (despite the arts honours having spanish as a subject choice) and combining spanish in later cos they'd had a lot of applicants already for arts. but i'm worried cos i don't think my personal statement is very impressive

when is your interview? do you have to stay overnight? do they include any details about the interview in your letter?

I think the Durham admissions system means that if you're accepted by the department, then you'll definitely get in somewhere, first choice college or not.
