This institution really sums up the British education experience, an eclectic mix of interesting people, sportsmen and students. It is not in every university where, through the collegiate system, a feeling of togetherness and inclusion is fostered in such an organic manner. A giant of old, Durham is one of the greatest establishments, academic or otherwise, in this great nation.

Studying at Durham University

Durham University is the 3rd oldest in England and is the only university in the UK to own a World Heritage Site. Not only a great place to live as a student, Durham University is also a privilege to be a part of, with award-winning facilities, world-class teaching experts and extensive resources. It has been named as an 'Ivy League' university by The Sunday Times and The Daily Telegraph.

The university is split over two campus sites, Queen's and Durham City. Durham City campus is the largest of the two, housing most of the colleges and departments and the main library. Queen's campus is made up of two colleges and 2000 students mainly studying Medicine and Finance. A bus connects the two campuses.

Students will not just leave with a degree from Durham University, they are also likely to be in demand by employers in the UK and beyond. A high flyer in graduate employment, Durham University currently appears in the top 100 of the world's universities but aims to be in the top 50 by 2020.

Student life at Durham University is well catered for. there are around 130 clubs and societies which include service organisations and special interests. There are also several club nights held at the Students' Union that include Twisted, the Jazz Café, Comedy Café, Planet of Sound and Revolver.

The student newspaper, Palatinate has been in existence since 1948 and its radian station, Purple Radio since the 1980s. Students can also voice their opinions on the website Durham21 (which currently holds the 'NUS website of the year Award') or in the other satire newspapers at the university.



Around 85% of students use the vast sports facilities including The Racecourse which also has pitches for cricket where students can play and learn expertise from this Centre of Cricketing Excellence.

Among its well-known alumni are Sir Milton Margai (first PM of Sierra Leone), Herbert Laming (head of the enquiry into Harold Shipman), Crispin Blunt (Politics), and Sir George Malcolm Brown (NASA) all of whom have made a significant contribution to society. In the realm of sports, Jonathan Edwards, Will Carling, Nasser Hussain and Andrew Strauss have all graduated from Durham University.

Durham University has won the title '3rd safest university' making it a great place to study and live. Everything you might need can be found on campus but students are also within easy access of the City of Durham.

Campus: The collegiate system is amazing, really made my experience what it was. Facilities: A little old and quite spread out, but not surprising as many lecture halls are in really old buildings. Clubs/Socs: Incredible, there's one for everyone and/or you can make your own. 'If you come to Durham and only leave with a degree, you've wasted your opportunity here' - quote from our college principal. SU: Not a significant part of life, colleges provide what the SU at other unis would be there for. Careers: Durham has huge pulling power with employers (those that know what they're doing anyway) but don't be arrogant about it, it's not a right to be employed on leaving! Internet: No major issues, appreciated how fast/reliable it was when I got my own on leaving... All in all, I really enjoyed my time here and wouldn't change anything. I hope you choose Durham and enjoy every minute!

Studying at Durham has been such a rich experience for me; you get to engage so much more with people, sports and societies because of the amazing intercollegiate system. There's so many events besides lectures and studying in the year for you to try out new things and it has really improved me on a personal level. It's a university that gives you a great education whilst letting you enjoy so much more.

A great university with so much charm and character. You are made to feel welcome from the first day and there are so many opportunities to get involved with. The collegiate system gives so many opportunities for students to gain leadership experience and help to improve the student experience for others. Although it is a small city there are still lots of things to get involved with and Newcastle is close by. The students here are all very intelligent but are not all 100% focused on work and appreciate the need for extra curricular activities making it an inspiring place to be! I would recommend anyone who has the opportunity to come here to go here!

My department allowed me to succeed in any area I chose. My course was guided by a team of highly intelligent and inspiring academic staff who very much want you to realise your potential; one couldn't ask for better support, frankly. As an organist, reading Music at Durham, there were more opportunities than time to commit to them, so I could never have been bored. Pubs/bars/clubs/Newcastle always provide a stimulating aura of reflection following rehearsals and concerts... The college system I found extremely helpful, pastorally and financially. Van Mildert College I came to hold quite close, though most of what I did occurred outside of college. It provided a hub for pretty much any issue or non-issue you might have, as well as having useful facilities (such as practice rooms, and a newly refurbished Bechstein grand piano in my case). I would definitely recommend to a friend, and there was certainly more I would've like to explore, yet time allows for only so many adventures.....

Durham is honestly a really special place - it has definitely obtained the healthy balance between academic work and stimulation, and an amazing variety of clubs and societies to join. Our students' union does not play as prominent a part in Durham partly because of the collegiate system, so that we socialise in our colleges. I really can't imagine my university experience being any better than this.

You have Oxbridge but I honestly would say Durham is a better uni. The beauty is that yes you need to have some intellectual ability however they look at all of your qualities not just the academic ones. You become an all round talented person, which I think is what is lacking from Oxbridge!

The uni spends money on weird things (e.g. £2m of artwork unseen by most students) that makes it feel as though the students are not always the priority. Science facilities (with the new science site) far superior to those of Arts & Humanities subjects, drawing questions over value for money of humanities courses. Sports faciliies and range of societies is great, collegiate system allows everyone to get involved.

I study at Durham Queen's campus and student satisfaction is extremely low. The campus sucks. There are limited facilities and there is not much stores or restaurants or other palces of leisure activity. Can say that there is simply nothing to do in Stockton. Also all the social activities including socieities are in Durham which is 1 hour bus ride from Stockton. This makes it extremely difficult for many Stockton students to join societies.

Union has not really existed for the beginning of the term. Things have been ticking over, but nothing has actually been implemented. The sheer number of Clubs and Societies on offer is mind boggling. Every college has about 20 and then there are 250 odd university societies with a further 50 odd university sports. If you want to get involved, it's easy!

There's a lot of talk about 'matching' you up to your perfect roommate when you apply for a shared room. It's all bulls**t.

I loved my time at Durham. I made amazing friends, developed important skills and founds lots of ways to volunteer and just be a good person. As for the university though... I saw zero improvements to my department I my three years, yet so many problems. It's not a modern university trying to provide a great educstion; it's an old school trying to maintain a high status so it doesn't need to compete with other universities by offering modern facilities, improving it's departments or horrible, cliquey college system, or any other numerous services.

Being collegiate makes such a huge difference, you meet people you would otherwise never have met, and you get opportunities to play every sport imaginable at a competitive level. Ecstatic that I chose Durham, and will forever be in love with it.

Main campus is wonderful whilst Queens campus lacks a collegiate vibe due to the lack of colleges (only 2) surrounding the area, also the location of the campus is in a roughy area of the country making it unwise to travel alone at night time

the environment is very calm and friendly and I found it easy to settle in due to the process by which they allow students to mingle with one another. I love the fact that in every college they make a conscious effort to integrate every kind of activity that pertains to the different tastes of the vast diverse of students.
