Celebrating Student Achievement

On 10 October 2016, our Faculty held our annual Celebrating Student Achievement event to mark the achievements of some students nominated by their departments for academic achievements, progress or effort. Guests were entertained by members of the Music Department and Durham University Light Opera Group and the students were presented with a commemorative plaque.


Apart from our world-class departmental research, we also contribute strongly to the Institute of Advanced Study, as well as several inter-departmental research centres.
