Hi, I'm aware this is current students but I'm looking for a hasty response and I guess people already at Durham will have the best idea so answers would be appreciated, thanks.
I'm having issues choosing which college to apply to (I know I've left it late to apply ) because from the descriptions in prospectus and so on quite a few seem appealing. If you leave it as 'open' do the department or whoever try to assign you a college that they think will suit you according to reference, PS etc or do they just fit you in where there's room basically?
Also, do you get a room at 'random' or is it first come first served in terms of applying for them because although it wouldn't be the end of the world I'm not keen on sharing a room, would just want my own space.
Once you are given an offer at a particular college is there any chance to swap at all or is it final?
This may seem like a silly question but I'm genuinely not sure, the only self catering college in Durham City according to prospectus is Josephine Butler, in a catering college are you not encouraged to cook your own food at all or is the option to cook your own available but at the same time you have the college cooked food available at lunch and dinner?
Also, where can I find out how far the colleges are from the city center and so on?
When can you expect yours?
