If you would like to apply to come to Durham as a Fee-paying or non-European exchange student you should:

  • have completed at least 1 year of study at undergraduate level.

Study Periods

Owing to the structure of our modules, students must come for a full academic year (October - June) and follow the normal assessment structures.

Choosing modules

On the application form you will need to select modules for your proposed course of studies:

  • Students are allowed to take modules from a maximum of 3 departments.
  • A separate Module Handbook entry is published for each academic Department and contains information on modules and academic requirements. These are found on the Programme Information page (link below).
