Study Abroad Programme

We are delighted that you are interested in Durham as your study abroad destination.

The Study Abroad Programme is Durham's visiting programme for undergraduate students. You can apply if you are currently registered for degree studies at an overseas (i.e. non-EU) university and wish to study abroad in the UK.

You can download our Study Abroad Guide for incoming students to find out how you can spend a year in Durham through our Study Abroad Programme.

Our academic programmes run for the full academic year (October-June) and study abroad students attend the same courses and take the same examinations as students studying a full degree at Durham.

Why study abroad at Durham?

  • Inspiring surroundings in an historic university town
  • Unique College system providing a strong sense of community - all students are members of a college
  • Opportunities to participate in a wide range of sports and other activities, both at University and college level
  • An excellent network of support and welfare services, including a dedicated Exchanges and Study Abroad Team and a personal College Tutor
