Durham University has a long-established commitment to research and research-led teaching. Research shapes and inspires the disciplinary structure of our departments, as well as our college communities. It directly informs our teaching of both undergraduates and postgraduates, and creates multidisciplinary programmes through our research centres and institutes. In partnership with policy-makers, industry, the public sector, and communities around the world, Durham’s cross-disciplinary and cross-cultural research shapes local, national and international agendas.
