Durham University is distinctive - a Collegiate University with ancient traditions and modern values. We seek to achieve the highest distinction in research and scholarship which make a real difference to societies world-wide. We are equally committed to excellence in all aspects of learning, education and the transmission of knowledge. But Durham University is much more than that. The World Heritage Site at the heart of the City of Durham has been a leading centre of scholarship for over 1000 years, while our cosmopolitan Queen's Campus in Stockton is at the leading edge of Teesside's transition from an industrial to a knowledge economy.
