MP welcomes funding for Durham University excellence
(17 March 2006)
Roberta Blackman-Woods MP has congratulated Durham University for being awarded a rise of 4.1% in its allocation of Government funding representing £2.6m in addition. This is due to Durham’s excellence in a wide range of areas. 20 of Durham’s departments are rated at 5 or 5-star level.
Roberta said, “I once again have cause to congratulate Durham University on this increase in funding. Durham’s research goes from strength to strength and it is widely known in the academic world that Durham is one of the key places to conduct cutting-edge research which is why Durham deserves this extra funding.”
