Is my university a European exchange partner university?

Durham is currently linked with European partner/twin universities (including Norway and Switzerland). European agreements are specific to academic departments. Please check with your home university to check whether an agreement is in place. A list can also be found here 'Where in Europe', please be aware that this URL link will navigate you to the outgoing (from Durham) part of the Durham University website.  We are constantly expanding our network of partners.
