Hi!

I’ve been debating where to go for uni (to study physics) and have narrowed it down to Durham (Trevs) or York..... I was going to go to the visit day at Durham (which obviously now has been cancelled) and then make up my mind about which is better for me, so if people could reply with their opinions studying at either uni, that’d be much appreciated!

I enjoy a lot of music (I play violin) and so if people know about music societies and that sort of thing, that would also be really useful!

I've been to visit days at both and am similarly choosing between them (although for my insurance). I initially preferred Durham due to their reputation, but throughout the process started to prefer York as their marketing is excellent and Durham's is generally quite weak. However, after visiting them both I have decided that I much prefer Durham, as York just had the wrong vibe. Sorry, I know that isn't very helpful, but Durham felt much more academic and York was fairly underwhelming (although I preferred the city of York to Durham).

definitely York, although Trevs may not be ideal.

York is a wonderful city, but the campus is a bit meh and the students won't be as musically cultivated as at Durham which is populated with middle class types.

I went to Durham and I had the time of my life. The formal dinners, the strong academic reputation, the nature, the proximity to Newcastle, the college bars, everything was just so great!

When I visited York, I thought it was quite dull and boring tbh.

Hi stressed0ut,

I'm a music student at York and I was wondering where you ended up?
Sorry I'm late to the party
