“Studying at Durham University amongst research-active academics gives you a real sense that you are participating in an ideas centred, progress driven environment where lecturers are contributors to their respective academic fields, pushing for understanding and knowledge of the world.

This helps you feel involved in the academic world as being amongst individuals with real passions for their areas makes you want to find your passion for a certain area and become more scholarly, exploring topics with an open mind and critical thinking which are necessary to make a thoughtful contribution.”
