Durham college choice HELP

University Navigation

    • Thread Starter

    Hi all,

    I'm applying for Modern Languages and Cultures and would like some advice regarding college choice. I can't seem to find much information about the colleges to differentiate them so basically this is what I want:
    - central (near the languages faculty i.e. near the castle basically)
    - historical is nice
    - self catered
    - has formal dinners
    - DRAMA !!!! I love drama and want to certainly get involved so would like a college that has a really good drama scene

    I was looking at University college and apparently it's SO oversubscribed so idk what are your thoughts?


    I don't think there's a college that hits all that criteria, but St Cuthbert's cuts it pretty close.
    It has the option of self-catering, though it doesn't have any formal dinners. Some of their residences are quite old, and some are quite modern (it depends what accommodation you get), and likewise some of its residences are quite close to the Cathedral whereas others are less close.
    The college itself is definitely historic (it was founded in 1888).

    The uni prospectus has a table of all the colleges with all the basic information (gowned formals, catering arrangements, number of students, etc) if that helps.
Which party will you be voting for in the General Election 2017?
