Queen's Campus transition - why does the International Study Centre (DUISC) matter?
(13 June 2018)
The University's aspiration is to be world-leading, and internationally renowned, in the areas of research and engagement, education and the student experience. Internationalisation is key to the University’s future academic success. It will help secure a pre-eminent position in an increasingly competitive global education market. World leading universities have globalised student populations and to that end, the DUISC will enable the University to achieve a greater reach within international student recruitment networks. The DUISC will extend the geographic diversity of the international student community, increase the overall number of non-UK students, and contribute about a third of the growth in future international student numbers at Durham.

High quality international students enrich both the educational and wider student experience, and help to strengthen international relationships. Once recruited, the DUISC will help prepare international students for entry onto Durham University undergraduate and taught postgraduate programmes across a broad range of subjects.
