Colleges and wider student experience

Colleges and wider student experience

Do you want to shape your own future?

There can be so much more to student life than studying – and nowhere more so than at Durham. We provide an environment dedicated to delivering an experience outside of your studies that is unrivalled in the UK.

At Durham University, we have committed to prioritising your student experience, providing unrivalled opportunities delivered through our three key strands:

• Our distinctive collegiate system;

• Dedicated wider student experience organisations; Sport, MusicTheatre and Volunteering

Durham Students’ Union.

These three elements combined enable you to create and shape your own individual student experience. At Durham, you can discover and become the person you want to be.

Create your own student experience

A major difference at Durham is the level of involvement and responsibility that students have in the life of the University.
The sheer scale of student-run, student-led activities available gives you every opportunity to try something new, discover new passions and continue to develop ones you already have. Whether you are interested in sport, theatre, music or volunteering, at Durham there are hundreds of student clubs and societies to get involved in, plus a further 200 to enjoy through Durham Students’ Union.

Ultimately, a Durham degree will be the most important line on your CV, but we want you to be able to support it with evidence of the impact you can make and the person you have become.
