National praise for our knowledge exchange
We’re proud to have performed strongly in the first ever national exercise that measures how we share our knowledge and expertise with businesses, charities and community organisations.
We are committed to reducing our environmental impact and improving the local environment, and our researchers are tackling some of the biggest issues facing our planet.
Astronomy and Cosmology at Durham University
Our space scientists are among the world’s most cited by fellow researchers and we’re at the forefront of research that is furthering our understanding of the universe and the exploration of space. We’re also helping to tackle problems on Earth like Covid-19 and disease in coffee plants.
From our student blogAstronomy & Cosmology
From observing super massive black holes to understanding newborn babies there’s more to astronomy and cosmology than you think. In this series of blogs we hear from undergraduates, postgraduates, researchers and alumni as they tell us what studying Physics at Durham has to offer and where it can take you.
