Durhams unique college system helps individuals develop through mentoring, involvement with college life, and providing networking opportunities and life-long friendships through the alumni associations.
The colleges are set up to be ideal living and working environments. They are not teaching bodies. Neither are they purely residential. They have their own sporting and social scenes and give you the chance to mix with postgraduates, undergraduates and staff. They are different ï¿½V Durham is different!
