Durham is a truly world-class university with a long history of welcoming students and academics from all over the globe. International partnerships are a core part of Durham's outstanding research and vibrant learning communities. Our many collaborative partnerships with international universities allow us to share knowledge and promote inter-cultural learning, ensuring that our graduates are in high demand on the global stage.
But we aren’t standing still. Our Strategy provides that by 2027, we will:
- Increase the number and proportion of non-UK students recruited to the University to a minimum of 35%. In so doing, we will increase the diversity of our student body and enrich the educational and wider student experience along with our University community.
- Internationalise the curricula of Durham University degrees with a view to increasing the employability of Durham students around the world. We will foster a culture of intellectual inquiry that advances respect for others and which more consistently addresses claims of difference.
- Develop University partnerships with eight to ten peer institutions in North America, Europe and East Asia.
- Establish a presence in key global cities, starting with London and New York, to enable us to better engage partners, alumni, students, staff and potential funders around the world.
