"The breathtaking beauty of Durham city further makes postgraduate studies at Durham University a memorable and enjoyable experience.
More importantly, a degree from Durham is a universal passport to employment."

Life in Durham
Described by Bill Bryson as "a perfect little city", Durham is small but steeped in history and tradition. Students enjoy many outdoors activities, from university-organised sporting events to rambles in one of the nearby National Parks and the university itself is at the heart of much of the activity in the city. For those with more urban tastes, the bustling city-life of Newcastle is just a 15 minute train ride away.
Department Seminar Series
The department organises an extensive programme of seminars with both internal speakers and guests of international renown. The weekly Durham Anthropology Seminar Series is a forum for presentation and debate by world-leading anthropologists that is cross-disciplinary in its focus. All students are welcome to attend these stimulating meetings. In addition, each of the research groups organises its own fortnightly seminars at which staff, postgraduates and visiting speakers present the fruits of their latest work, or discuss work of contemporary interest in the relevant sub-field.
