Great university cities – Durham
For the past three years, KE has been based in Durham. Within the UK, Durham is a very famous university, yet outside the UK not everyone has heard of it.
For many British students, Durham is the UK’s university of choice after Oxford and Cambridge. It’s situated in a very different part of the country – the North-East. But in some ways it’s like the northern equivalent of Oxford and Cambridge: the University is based on colleges, many of them housed in beautiful old buildings. And the city itself is amazing. Our base, St. Chad’s College, is situated right next door to the Cathedral, with the Castle just a short distance away. It’s a UNESCO World Heritage site!
