Durham University

About Durham University

"Durham, I have come to realise, has a capacity to astound out of all proportion to its size. I don’t know any place that manages to be more intimate and infinite at once.”

Bill Bryson, international author and former Chancellor of Durham University

Durham University is distinctive - a residential collegiate university with long traditions and modern values. We seek the highest distinction in research and scholarship and are committed to excellence in all aspects of education and transmission of knowledge. Our research and scholarship affect every continent.

We are proud to be an international scholarly community which reflects the ambitions of cultures from around the world. We promote individual participation, providing a rounded education in which students, staff and alumni gain both the academic and the personal skills required to flourish.

World university rankings

Durham is consistently ranked as one of the world’s leading universities as shown by its World Top 100 position in two influential global league tables.

In the QS World University Rankings 2017-18, the University is 78th. In the Times Higher Education (THE) World University Rankings 2016-17, Durham is ranked 96th.

In national league tables, including the Times/Sunday Times Good University Guide, Durham University is consistently recognised as one of the top universities in the UK.

Excellence in teaching and research

In world subject rankings, Durham also demonstrates its strength in teaching and research.

In the 2017 QS World University Subject Rankings Durham University has eight subjects in the top 50 and 14 in the top 100. Theology & Religion is ranked third in the world, Archaeology is fourth and Geography is seventh.

The 2016-17 Times Higher Education Subject Rankings placed Arts and Humanities in 29th place in the world and Physical Sciences climbed 23 places to 60th.

Global impact

Professor Stuart Corbridge, Vice-Chancellor and Warden, Durham University, said:

“Durham is one of the world’s great universities and one of the most distinctive. Our new University Strategy includes ambitious proposals to ensure that we build on our strengths, to continue delivering world-class research, education and wider student experience.

“Our success in international and national rankings and league tables is something the whole University can be proud of.”
