Choosing Durham University...
If you don’t have British (or Irish) nationality and you're planning to travel to the UK to study at Durham, you may need to apply for a visa before you travel. The type of visa / permission you need depends on the course you're coming to study.
Working in the UK
Working during your study can be a good way of earning extra income and gaining valuable experience. Make sure that any work you do doesn't affect your study, we recommend that you limit part-time work to 12 hours per week.
