Study Abroad

Current Durham University Students seeking overseas study options should refer to our Outgoing Students Global Opportunities pages.

Where Durham does not have a partnership, students may come to Durham as fee-paying exchange students. You will find: 

  • Inspiring surroundings in a historic university town
  • A uniqueCollege Experience that provides a strong sense of community - all students are members of a college
  • Opportunities to participate in a wide range of sports and other activities, both at the university and college level 
  • An excellent network of support and welfare services, including a dedicated Exchanges and Study Abroad Team and a personal College Tutor 

One unique feature of Durham is our collegiate system. Our 17 Colleges or Societies provide a social, domestic and pastoral focus for students and help individuals flourish through mentoring and involvement with college life, sports and societies and community engagement.

Students on the fee paying Study Abroad Programme are eligible for accommodation in one of our residential colleges for a true "Durham experience".
