Durham has always been a modern, forward-looking University. With amedieval World Heritage Siteat our heart, our new buildings continue the tradition of important and innovative architecture.
Durham was one of the first universities to admit women on an equal footing to men (1890), to establish medical training (1834) and the first to award Civil and Mining Engineering degrees to meet regional and national needs during the industrial revolution (1838).
Durham led in the development of science and established one of the earliest observatories in England. Durham University was based in two cities for over 100 years, its medical school at King's College and other Colleges in Newcastle becoming the new and independent University of Newcastle in 1963.
Durham was also the first University to establish overseas campuses a century before the concept was reinvented: in Barbados in 1875 and Sierra Leone in 1876. In 1992 the University established a significant presence at our Queen's Campus in the heart of Tees Valley, reinitiating medical teaching and breaking disciplinary boundaries to enhance public health and social well being.
From 2016 onwards, Queen’s Campus has been repurposed, in part as Durham University International Study Centre, where international students develop study and language skills in preparation for undergraduate and postgraduate study.
