What their Students Say
“My recommendation to anybody considering applying to Durham University is to give it a go as you surely will not be disappointed.
Moreover, I have met many Masters students that completed their undergraduate degree here and did not want to do a postgraduate degree anywhere else.
If you are diligent with your work, you will find plenty of time to enjoy the city of Durham and the wonderful student atmosphere while being met with success.”
