As we are always striving to improve the student experience, if you have any feedback for the department please contact your course representatives! Enjoy!
After you have confirmed your place at Durham and a University IT account has been set up for you, you will gain access to induction information via SharePoint and Blackboard (the University’s Virtual Learning Environment).
Information, including advice on module choices, will become available to you via SharePoint. You will need to submit your optional module choices in advance of your arrival in Durham in the online registration system. For the time being, please do not worry about this – no action is needed until September.
First of all, enrol online then consult the Physics Blackboard Induction and SharePoint sites.
The Timetable has been designed so College events don’t clash with any of your academic departmental events, but offer you lots of opportunities to meet your fellow Freshers, find your way around and settle into student life.
