    Are you aware that Durham 's Finance degree is at their Queen's campus, 20 miles away in Stockton?

    Lots of Open Days coming up in May, June and July - these are designed for anyone thinking of applying to Uni, so all year 12s and even year 11s are very welcome to attend, and yes, it can provide a great inspiration/motivation for study. Go to several different Units - not just the AAA grade one - as you will need an Insurance place asking for lower grades.

    Btw, the course is more important than the Uni - so check that the course content is what you actually want to study for 3 whole years. And not all courses are the same. Don't forget to look at courses that are 'like' Finance or Economics or give you extras like study abroad or work placements.
