About University: Lovely Durham is home to one of the country's top universities. The city is picturesque, wooded, hilly, and aching with heritage. The brooding Norman cathedral dominates the skyline – and it tells you something about the prestige of the university that one of its colleges is housed in the castle right next door. Durham is a collegiate university, meaning that student life has a real sense of focus and community to it. There's also more than a whiff of Oxbridge to proceedings. Durham students are well placed for glorious countryside and coastline, and there are good transport links – especially rail, since you're on the fast east-coast line here – should you want to leave. Though why would you?
