As a student from one of our exchange partners you will not be required to pay tuition fees at Durham University.
BUTEX, the British Universities Transatlantic Exchange Association, offers scholarships each year for students from the USA or Canada who have been offered a place as a study abroad or exchange student at a UK member university
Accommodation at Durham University is organised by the Colleges. The Durham Colleges are not responsible for teaching but are purely residential and social communities. They are more than just places to eat and sleep. Instead, each college is a small community providing a wide range of activities and facilities for study, sports, the arts, socialising, relaxation and welfare. All students coming to Durham on the Study Abroad Programme are guaranteed a place in one of the Colleges.
Colleges will offer different let periods and college costs will vary accordingly. College costs are not included in the tuition fees.
