Durham University

Durham University


Durham is a globally outstanding centre of teaching and research excellence, a collegiate community of extraordinary people, in a unique and historic setting.

Founded in 1832, Durham is the third oldest university in England and has a long-established commitment to research. Delivering a cutting-edge research-led education is at the heart of what we do, which means that our academic staff are more than just lecturers reading from books – you’ll be working with world-leading academics at the forefront of their fields.

Durham is a Collegiate University, meaning that every single Durham student is part of one of our 17 colleges of residence and is welcomed to a smaller community from day one, within the larger Durham community, and guaranteed first year accommodation.
