"It’s not one of those huge schools where you are just another person in the crowd, you are definitely an individual." Alexia D-S
The University has exceptional support services.
Meet and greet
Durham prides itself on the level of service and welcome we give to international students. The formal welcome, the opportunity to make new friends from other countries and the welcome/pick-up at the airport and train station are designed to make your transition to studying in another country as easy as possible.
"Arrival, pickup and orientation processes were excellently done."

Preparing to come to Durham
There is further guidance on how to prepare for coming to Durham on the University's webpages for international students.
As well as information provided by our International Office, the British government in the USA has an extremely helpful website which provides clear guidance about the immigration process.
