Department of Chemistry

Overseas Students

The Chemistry Department has a long tradition of welcoming undergraduate and postgraduate students from around the world and interacting and collaborating with top international institutions.  

In recent years the Department is delighted to have postgraduate students from many different countries around the world amongst its numbers, including from: Australia, Canada, China, Cyprus, Egypt, France, Finland, Germany, Greece, India, Iran, Ireland, Italy, Japan, Malaysia, Nigeria, Pakistan, Portugal, Russia, Saudi Arabia, Singapore, Spain, South Africa, Thailand, Turkey, and the USA.

Some of what our current overseas students say may be found here.

To support all our postgraduate students, especially those not from the UK, Durham University has an International Office, a Language Centre and Welfare Support Offices who can all advise students on a whole range of issues.  In addition, the Accommodation Office and Students Union can assist students in finding accommodation here in Durham either in one of the University's colleges or private accommodation.

For information, students living in Durham need to budget for living expenses of typically a minimum of £9000 / year in order to cover accommodation costs, food and clothing.

Details of course fees may be found at: Fees.

The Department welcomes postgraduate applications from students from overseas and the EU. See How to apply.
