So I have accepted an offer to study law at Durham but to be honest, I'm feeling really nervous about it. I'm not really sure that I want to go but due to certain circumstances I don't really have much of a choice, and so I was hoping that maybe hearing about what people really like about it would help! Thank you

The city is my favorite bit, tbh - quiet, old, lovely.

I'm going into my 3rd year of Law

I love the city itself, it's so pretty and quaint - the bars and cafes are lovely! The botanical garden is very sweet and there's lots of places to go on walks to de-stress. It's very close to Newcastle on the train if you need more shops of like busy places, but I'm generally happy to stick to Durham. The best thing is probably the college system, it means there's a lot of opportunity for socialising and getting to know different groups of people. You're always around the people that you live with, but there's so many other routes to meet people! Because the city is very small, it also means you see your friends all the time there's also a really active theatre scene which is great for making friends through, even if you don't act

Any chance you could give some tips on how best to prepare for starting a Law degree? I'll be starting at Durham this September/October.

When I started I did a reasonable amount of the recommended reading, but it didn’t really help that much to be honest, as they’ll teach you it all from scratch anyway. You’ll have sessions on how to research and use the library facilities, so that’s all covered too. If you want to have a little look over the content you’ll be covering, have a skim over e-lawresources, it’s a really popular website for law students :lol: I’d make sure you have a good organisation and planning system in place, as you won’t have many contact hours so you need to make the most of them. Decide at the start whether you want to make electronic or paper notes, as you can download the handouts online if you have a laptop

Mind if I ask which college you're in? I'm Grey
