Durham is a brand-new addition to the QS Best Student Cities 2022.

Situated in gorgeous Northeast England, Durham is a region long-renowned for its natural beauty and rich heritage. The Northeast also has a lower cost of living and a fraction of the population of the Southeast. It’s no wonder why the north-east region is now one of the most popular study destinations in the UK.

Three universities in Durham feature in the QS World University Rankings® 2022, the most notable of which is Durham University, which stands at joint 82nd in the world.
