University Strategy 2017-2027

Building on Strength

Building on Strength

Durham is a world top 100 university with a global reputation for excellence in research and education. But we are also so much more than our league table positions. Our students benefit from a world-leading wider student experience. We combine academic excellence with a commitment to producing the highly motivated, well-rounded and social engaged leaders of tomorrow.

Shaping the Future

Nevertheless, we can do better. We have reviewed the size, shape and mission of the University and some major changes are already under way:

  • The School of Medicine, Pharmacy and Health, previously based at our Queen’s Campus in Stockton-on-Tees transferred to Newcastle University for the academic year 2017/18.
  • Academic programmes and colleges that have been based at Queen’s Campus are being relocated to Durham City, a two-year process that will be completed for October 2018.
  • In September 2017, we opened the Durham University International Study Centre, run in partnership with Study Group. This offers pathway programmes for international students, covering the academic and languages skills required for higher education study in the UK.
  • We are committed to building research critical mass in all of our academic Departments. We are growing our student population from 17,500 to a maximum of 21,500 and recruiting an extra 330 academic staff by 2027.
  • We have committed to housing more of our students in College accommodation by 2027. To meet this objective, we will establish four to six new Colleges, in partnership with private sector developers.
