    Heya! I'm considering doing psych and education studies in Durham. Its kind of in the top two unis for me right now. Really confused with the colleges, though. From what I understand, the closest to my department is St Hild and Bede (sorry that I'm shortening it) but I kind of like St Cuthbert. I'm also considering University, St John's, St Chad's and Hatfield, as they are relatively close to the School of Education. Any advice on the colleges? Thanks in advance!

    I'm applying for Accounting and Finance with Foundation Year at Durham. My college choice in University/Castle however, currently the course is in Stockton and that would be at the Queen's campus. On there website it says they are planning to more the course to Durham Campus. Tad confused by it all, however I'm sure they'll clear it up over time!

    Thanks! I chose it for a few reasons. 1) It's actually a really good university, though an overlooked one by most - it's no.9 in all the rankings. 2) It's a campus university and a beautiful one at that. 3) The course is really good for my interests. 4) It is based in the North, which is nice for me as a native of Durham.

    Yeah, I’m okay with that! I mean, so long as you don’t get stuck with someone you just don’t get on with, I think it’s a really good way of giving you a leg-up when making friends. But then it’s also so touch and go aha!
