Durham Inspired Award


The Durham Inspired Award has three zones: Think, Act, Grow. You start with Think.

It aims to inspire the extraordinary within Durham University students. A ‘Degree plus Inspired Award’ from Durham is an unbeatable combination to take with you into employment and life in general.

The Durham Inspired Award is open to all undergraduate students with two years left on their degree, and it is delivered with support from Colleges, the Students' Union and Experience Durham. Feel inspired, achieve great things, reflect on your experience and enter into employment and life ready, prepared and one step ahead.
