Our inspirational graduates, if you decide to join Durham University, you’ll be in good company.
I loved the fact that I could tailor my degree to exactly what I wanted to do. The flexibility of the course has been a great step in my pursuit of a career in research.
SGIA alumnus Amarvir Singh Bal has sponsored a finalist student award for academic excellence. The award is given to a student taking the Theories of Liberty third year module who demonstrates both academic excellence and a strong engagement with the topics of racial or colonial oppression. This year the award, named after the module convenor THE DIMOVA-COOKSON AWARD FOR ACADEMIC EXCELLENCE IN SOCIAL CRITICISM, has been awarded for the first time. The winner of the award is SGIA’s finalist Hannah Withey.
The range of topics covered is both challenging and exciting, with sizeable reading lists to sink your teeth into. The highlight for me has been both the approach-ability and friendliness of the staff, who have always been more than happy to go into more detail and point me in the right direction for further study.
See below for testimonies from a diverse selection of our brilliant Alumni speaking about their experiences with us. These include students who studied with us through a number of different programmes.
