Durham Achieves Highest Ranking in University Guide


DURHAM University has achieved its highest-ever ranking in a prestigious national league table.

The Sunday Times University Guide 2010 placed Durham seventh nationally out of 122 institutions - moving ahead of the well-respected London School of Economics. The Sunday Times also said that Durham "dominates" the North-east's university rankings.

The guide shows that Durham is one of the most highly regarded universities in the UK among head teachers and academics and that student satisfaction is among the highest nationally.

The guide drew attention to Durham's outstanding facilities and the fact that 24 subjects were rated excellent for teaching in the most recent assessment.

The university's collegiate system at both Durham and Queen's Campus, in Stockton, were praised for being "bite-size student communities" at "the centre of most students' social networks".

Sporting success was also highlighted. Ninety per cent of students play sport regularly, turning out for 350 teams in the college sport programme, while the university has a reputation for producing international class sportsmen and women.
