    Offer for Theology

    I did an open application, but luckily I still got in. They have accepted me, but they haven't told me which college I've been allocated to!

    Is it true that the Languages Dept. take quite a while to make offers? (I'm applying for Combined Honours Arts, specifically French and Maths, and am a bit worried that my application is still with the department, although i sent it two months ago...)
    I applied for same course, they did take awhile to get back to me too (about 6 weeks). Could be because your application is quite unusual, combining the Arts subject with a hard science (as opposed to the social science combinations the prospectus makes clear are more popular/acceptable). Were you hoping to take any other arts subjects apart from French, its just they may be a bit iffy about the choice of course, thats just looking at it from my point of view though.

    Of course I coulld've missed the small print in the prospectus etc. and be completely wrong in this assumption though!
    If you're worried about how far you've progressed though, have you tried using the AES? Durham should've sent you an email when you applied with a PIN you could use to track the progress of your application, www.dur.ac.uk/aes.
    On here it should say whether your application's been recieved by the Department or College yet.

    Hope this helps a little an good luck

    Congrats! Will it be your firm?
    Thanks
    I'm not sure, I'm far too indecisive! I'm still waiting on another two, and then I'll visit anywhere that needs to be visited

    Are you an overseas applicant?
    No, I'm not.

    I've been using the AES thing - it still says my application is with the department. And I've been in to see the Combined Honours office, and also the French and Maths departments, and they never said anything about my combination possibly being an issue with it combining an Arts and a Science subject.

    I got my offer for history exactly a month ago today, and still heard nothing from any college! Originally applied to Hatfield, has anyone else had it take so long?

    I think it means your first choice can't take you so you've been sent somewhere else. Only a guess due to the long wait, you'll find out soon enough!

    Yeah that's what I figured.. shame, seeing as I sent my UCAS on 3rd September, you'd think they'd have space seeing as as far as I know, Durham do it on a first come first serve basis.. Oh well

    Perhaps it might be an idea to give them a ring? It'll just getting busier and harder to get sense out of them as it nears and passes the UCAS deadline.
    I applied to Hatfield too but I only got my offer today (yay) so I hope I'll hear about my college sooner than in a month!
    After you heard from UCAS, did you receive an acceptance letter from Durham itself? if so, how long did it take you to get that?

    How long after being accepted did other people hear about colleges?

    Haha, I literally just got my letter! So no ringing them needed. Kind of disappointed, I've been moved to Grey College, not on the bailey and not old! I thought they'd at least try to give you something similar to what you originally applied for. Oh well, going to concentrate on the fact that I have an offer and I should be pleased Well done to you, too, by the way Still, makes me sad that I might be living in this gorgeous place but not in a gorgeous college (no offence to anyone who applied to Grey ). You applying for history too?

    If I fail to get into Cambridge, then yeah it will, there's no way I'm letting the change of college bother me that much If I do get in, then I'll probably decide to do the stupid thing and have Durham as my insurance. Just because I love it so much

    I know this has been asked (and ignored) before but has anyone applying for natural sciences heard anything?
    I check AES daily and it's been an agonising wait (since early October)!!
    So if you have, please leave me know so i can tell the department hasn't died :P
