Your pathway to a world top 100 university
Specialist programmes for international students
Durham University International Study Centre is your first step to gaining a degree from a world-leading university, one of the oldest in the UK. Studying one of our specialist programmes, you will develop the academic and English language skills you need for a degree at Durham University.
We will be open for your studies (subject to satisfactory completion of our detailed health and safety risk assessment) and supportive staff at the International Study Centre will help you adjust to living and studying in the UK. If you cannot travel to the UK for the start of the first term, you can start your studies online from home.
