Durham is a global and inclusive university attracting a diverse student and staff community to study and work here. An international dimension cuts across all aspects of University activity, supported by our international partners to deliver cutting edge research and provide opportunities for students and staff to gain an international experience.
Through the Global Week, the University recognises, celebrates and seeks to learn from Durham’s role as a global university. The Week runs numerous cultural, artistic and culinary events for students and staff to participate in and enjoy.
There are a huge number of societies for students to engage with. These may be of use if you want to learn about a new culture, meet people, practice a language or find out about places that you may want to take a Global Opportunity.
