Durham University

Durham University

Widely seen as the north of England’s nearest equivalent to Oxbridge, Durham has a collegiate structure and high standards that have made it a permanent fixture in our top 10.

A rise to fifth place this year in our table and a 30-place rise in the new QS world rankings this week help earn Durham a shortlisting for University of the Year.
