Unified by the power of discovery and understanding, staff and students at the university are committed to finding new ways to transform the world we live in.

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. Durham is a world top 100 university with a global reputation for excellence in research and education, and we are a respected member of the Russell Group of leading research-intensive universities.
We are proud to be an international scholarly community which reflects the ambitions of cultures from around the world. We welcome talented students from all backgrounds to join our community of 17,000 students from over 150 different countries.
Research and Knowledge Transfer activities at the University generate £139.3m GVA for the UK economy, supporting 2,700 jobs. Examples include collaborations with Procter and Gamble, IBM and Ørsted. However, we are so much more than our league table positions and so much more than a research-intensive university which offers outstanding teaching.
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. Our students also benefit from being members for life of one of our sixteen residential Colleges, each of which offers a diverse and supportive community in which they can thrive and develop both personally and academically.
The University of Hull has been changing the world and changing lives since 1927. In a rapidly altering world, our research is responding to some of the biggest global challenges. Our current work ranges from health to habitats, food to flooding and supply chains to slavery. We have appeared twice in Universities UK’s list of ‘100 discoveries by British universities that have changed the world’.
Once for our globally renowned breakthrough in liquid crystal displays (facilitating the technology for screens on mobile phones, TVs, laptops and tablets); and once for our pioneering work on a bone density scanner for the earlier detection of osteoporosis. Our Wilberforce Institute has also won the Queen’s Anniversary Prize in recognition of its work combatting modern-day slavery.
We’ve been recognised for our academic impact: the University was named in the top 50 UK institutions for research power by Times Higher Education, based on the most recent Research Excellence Framework 2014. We were proud to be awarded Silver in the 2017 Teaching Excellence Framework – a Government initiative to recognise excellence in teaching and learning. One of the reasons was the very high level of student satisfaction with teaching and academic support. The University’s collaborations are shaping the future. Building on the success of Hull’s reign as City of Culture, in which the University was a Principal Partner, the University is pleased to be bringing the best of British Science to Hull and the Humber in September 2018 by hosting the British Science Festival, giving the opportunity to showcase nationally the region’s significant contribution in this field. The University welcomes students from more than 100 countries across the world, equipping them with the skills, knowledge and opportunities for growth to empower them to strive for excellence in whatever career they choose. With close to 17,000 students in 2016/17, the fact that one in six of our students come to the University from outside the UK is testament to the strength of the University’s reputation.
