Global Durham

International Consortia

Durham - A World University 

International collaboration is key to Durham's excellence in teaching and research. We have affiliations with many institutions and organisations worldwide, and are currently a member of the following international consortia and organisations:


Council for At-Risk Academics (CARA)

CARA is a British charitable organization dedicated to providing refuge and support academics who, for reasons of persecution and conflict, are unable to continue their research in their countries of origin. Academics are given support to relocate to the United Kingdom and rebuild their careers.

Durham University is a member of the CARA Scholars at Risk UK Universities Network.

British Universities Iraq Consortium (BUIC)

BUIC represents a group of British Universities working together with the British Council and other agencies to support the infrastructure building of Higher Education in Iraq. We believe that the most effective way of helping our colleagues in Iraq is to adopt a co-ordinated approach, sharing information, needs and solutions to problems identified. 

Association of Commonwealth Universities (ACU)

The ACU, represents over 520 universities from commonwealth countries and is the the oldest and one of the largest inter-university networks in the world. The ACU fosters collaboration between developed and developing country universities combining the expertise and reputation of nearly a century’s experience with new and innovative programmes designed to meet the needs of universities in the 21st century.
