Why attend? 
This webinar is a great opportunity to have your questions answered. You’ll hear first-hand from our academics, covering everything from course content and module selection to life in Durham and student support. Attending the event will help you to decide which of our programmes best suits your needs. We’ll cover all ​ ​of our postgraduate engineering courses:

  • Advanced mechanical engineering 
  • Biomedical engineering 
  • Civil engineering 
  • Electrical engineering 
  • Electronic engineering 
  • Renewable and sustainable energy 
  • ​​Energy engineering management


At Durham University, we consider Engineering an integrated subject rather than sub-dividing the discipline into narrow areas. We follow a modular system; you will normally have several core modules and the opportunity to select several optional modules. 

In addition to exploring the available courses, you’ll discover why the historic city of Durham is such a safe, beautiful and welcoming place to live and learn. We’ll talk you through the area and its many amenities and answer any questions about life in Durham. 

Why Durham University?
As a world top 100 institution (QS World University Rankings 2024) Durham University has a long and proud reputation as a global research and teaching excellence centre. We’re a collegiate University built around a UNESCO World Heritage site, and we also form part of the prestigious Russell Group of British research-intensive universities. Established in 1832, we rank among the oldest Universities in England.  

Our Department of Engineering is ranked 5th in the UK by The Guardian University Guide 2024. We are proud to deliver some of the best student satisfaction and employability results – with 88% of students in graduate-level employment within 15 months of graduation.

Our links with key industry partners from across the engineering field make us a locally, nationally and globally renowned centre for engineering excellence. We look forward to meeting you, answering your questions, and welcoming you to the Department of Engineering for this exclusive webinar on April 3.

"SI-UK has been a crucial part of my UK journey. They assisted me in obtaining my bachelor's degree in August 2019 and now, they've aided me in securing admission to a top design university in London for my master's. The counselors at SI-UK offer personalised support to each applicant, helping us in each and every step including the final stage of obtaining our CAS letter once we receive the offer."

"The entire team at SI-UK was incredibly supportive. They provided me with a list of universities to consider, and I ultimately chose Aston University. With their assistance, I applied and received an offer along with a £5000 scholarship. I am grateful to my counselor and the entire team for guiding me through the visa application process and every other aspect. Thank you, SI-UK, for helping me pursue my dream."

"Last year, I reached out to SI-UK, Jaipur for my Master’s journey, and it has been an incredibly fulfilling and successful experience. From guiding me through the application process to assisting with letters of recommendation and statement of purpose, and even following up with universities, SI-UK provided comprehensive support at every step of the journey. They went the extra mile, assisting with admissions, fee processing, accommodation arrangements, visa guidance, and coordination on medical checkups. I firmly believe that my admission to the University of Birmingham wouldn't have been possible without SI-UK. I highly recommend SI-UK to anyone seeking admission to a UK or Ireland university."

In September, I sought assistance from SI-UK for my studies in the UK, with a planned intake for January 2023. With the support of my counsellor who made exceptional efforts, I smoothly navigated the application process which culminated in the timely acquisition of my UK student visa hassle-free. I wholeheartedly endorse SI-UK to fellow students aiming to pursue their dreams of studying in the UK. Thank you!
