Durham University

Durham Inspired Award

Why do it?

We are a values based University.

We are Challenging, Enabling, Innovative, Responsible and above all we are Inspiring.

Inspiring Research. Inspiring Education. Inspiring Student Experience based around sport, music, theatre, enterprise, volunteering, student societies and leadership.

Celebrate your achievements.

This Award is not necessarily about you having to do more, it is about celebrating and recognising all that you will naturally do as a Durham University student. You take it for granted because it’s happening all around you every day but, whether you realise it or not, your contribution to the Durham community is inspiring.

Reflect on your experiences.

Our students already do so much more. You deserve to be recognised and given the opportunity to better understand the value of your experiences to further enrich your personal and professional development. We promote participation, critical thinking, leadership and citizenship and this Award helps you to integrate those experiences.

Why wouldn't you do this?

True success at Durham is about more than obtaining a degree certificate and getting involved in clubs and societies. Completing the Durham Inspired Award will give you the edge to take into employment and into life more generally. This is the Durham Difference.

This is for you. Get involved.
