Durham is a world top 100 university with a global reputation for excellence in research and education. The QS World University Rankings 2016-17 placed us 74th – and we rose from 3rd to 2nd among UK universities for research citations by faculty member. Additionally, we ranked 39th globally for the employability of our students by blue-chip companies worldwide.

In the UK we are a respected member of the Russell Group of leading research-intensive universities. The 2017 Times and Sunday Times Good University Guide placed us 4th in the UK overall and demand for places to study at Durham is strong and growing.

Proud to be different

But our focus is not simply on league tables or being a research-intensive university which offers outstanding teaching. Here at Durham we combine academic excellence with a commitment to providing students with the opportunity to develop as the highly motivated, well-rounded and socially engaged leaders of tomorrow. Our students benefit from being members for life of one of our sixteen residential Colleges, each of which offers a diverse and supportive community in which they can thrive and develop both personally and academically. The wider student experience is underpinned by these Colleges but also by Durham Students’ Union and Experience Durham. The latter co-ordinates our renowned drama, music, leadership, sport and volunteering programmes, ensuring that our students enjoy an unrivalled student experience.

Our strategic goals

We have three Strategic Goals, as defined in our University Strategy 2017-2027, which we weigh equally:

  • To deliver world-leading and world-changing research across all core academic departments and institutes
  • To deliver education that is challenging, enabling, research-led and transformative
  • To deliver, through our Colleges, Durham Students’ Union and Experience Durham, a wider student experience as good as any in the world
