    Hello!

    I'm an American applicant so my qualifications are different, but....
    Advanced Placements: 5,5,5,5,5,5 (three already taken)
    SAT II's: 800 and 680
    Going to take the ACT this weekend! *screaming

    I'll be applying for English and most likely at Hatfield. Castle looks really great too, but I'm told its extremely oversubscribed? Thoughts anyone?

    Well, I'm a blind applicant from the EU and was just wondering how "accessible" the campus is.

    There are lots of people in college and your subject that would be able to support you while you began to understand the city and get around for the first time.
    If there is anything else I can do to make your feel more at ease before coming feel free to private message me

    If it's any consolation, I am an American, and when I applied to undergrad programs, I had similar marks and got an unconditional offer from Durham. You're in a great spot, and best of luck! (I didn't go with Durham.)

    I am applying to the taught MA in history for 2017 entry.

    I understand, it might be worth emailing and asking. Do you have a preference and why?

    It says on the Law PhD page (I think) that you don't get to choose a college. Tbh I'm not *that* fussed, but my undergrad uni and my masters uni didn't have colleges so it's kinda exciting
