PPE at Durham (can't see the study abroad option on UCAS)

Hi everyone,

I have just put in my UCAS application, with one of my choices being PPE at Durham, but I couldn't see the study abroad option. I was just wondering if I have done something wrong, or if you have to wait until you're there to apply for the study abroad year? If I look at other courses e.g., Economics at Durham, the Study abroad year comes up as an option with a different UCAS code so I am slightly confused!

Thank you so much for your time and help! :smile:

I think you wait until you're there, how you feeling about getting an offer back?
My predicted is A*A*A (Maths, Econ, History)
GCSEs: 88888877776,A,M2

Hiya

Don't worry about this, you can transfer on to the 4-year course once you start your studies. The website mentions:

Students on BA Philosophy, Politics and Economics can apply to be transferred onto either the Year Abroad or with Placement pathway during the second year. Places on these pathways are in high demand and if you are chosen your studies will extend from three years to four.

Hope that helps :smile:

Fingers crossed, it seems like it's going to come down to the personal statement I really hope I've done enough, I'm just wondering when I'm likely to get a decision back...
Best of luck with your application, your grade profile is strong! :smile:

Yes, that's what I was thinking too, I'm sure you will be just fine! I think decisions tend to come out after the last UCAS deadline (31st January I think) and sometime before late march.

Good luck to you too, I'm sure you will receive an offer! 🙂

If you don't mind me asking, what other universities have you applied for?

Sure no worries.

LSE - Politics and Economics (?)
Warwick - PPE (?)
KCL - PPE (Rejection based on 'strong competition for places')
Queen Mary - Economics & Politics (Reduced Offer AAB)

How about you?

Ooh they're all great unis!
I applied to-
Oxford (No interview)
LSE ?
Exeter ?
Birmingham (Offer AAB)
All for PPE 🙂
Nice choices, so the Oxford PPE course doesn't require you to do an interview or you didn't get past the interview stage?)
