Durham University


Supporting your studies

When you join Durham University you will find plenty of facilities to complement, enhance and support your studies.

We have a continual programme of investment in facilities, which in recent years has seen major developments to lecture theatres, seminar rooms and subject specific facilities such as science laboratories, state-of-the-art equipment and dedicated libraries.

We have an outstanding range of resources for students including well-stocked libraries and IT services, with Wi-Fi available across the University and in colleges. You will benefit from access to award-winning museums, where you can utilise historical collections to support your studies and research.

If you are looking to learn another language to prepare for study abroad, develop skills which will help with your degree studies, enhance your employment prospects, or just for fun, we can help develop your foreign language skills. We offer a range of courses from Arabic and Chinese to Spanish, either credit bearing or extra-curricular.

My experience as an international student has been outstanding. Staff members, students and the local people are very helpful and accommodating. I have had many opportunities for career growth and have all the facilities and support for my research. In short, this experience is far better than my expectations.
