Guidance notes:

  • Entry requirements per course will differ, and some courses may require previous study in certain subjects. Please check the Requirements and Admissions section of the course database for details and exact requirements.
  • We understand that some students may have a combination of qualifications, and if you have any questions about how we assess those qualifications together you can use our contact form.
  • Details included under each country are for future undergraduate and postgraduate taught students. If you are interested in a postgraduate research course, please visit the postgraduate study pages and the academic department’s website of interest.
  • You may be required to submit an English Language qualification if you are not a native English speaker. Please review the standard English Language requirements for your course and country.

International Study Centre

If you do not meet the requirements for direct entry to an undergraduate or postgraduate degree, you may be eligible to take a pathway programme at the Durham University International Study Centre. Located at our Queen’s Campus, the International Study Centre provides a supportive environment where you will be introduced to the style of teaching you will experience should you progress on to your degree. Programmes aim to improve your academic knowledge, study and English language skills. Completing your pathway programme at the International Study Centre and achieving the required grades means that you can progress to your degree at Durham University City Campus.

You can chose from International Foundation Year or Pre-Masters pathway programmes. Find out more about the International Study Centre.
