Durham ranked fourth best in the country by The Times University Guide

Our teaching quality is higher than Oxford’s

Durham University has been ranked fourth in The Times and Sunday Times Good University Guide 2018.

The result means Durham is slowly but surely getting closer to Oxbridge as we move up one place from last year.

Ranked first is the University of Cambridge, second is the University of Oxford, and in third place is the University of St Andrews.

You will not be surprised to hear that Durham has beaten Cambridge when it comes to student experience, as well as scoring higher than Oxford for teaching quality.

We also have higher entry standards than St Andrews, obviously.
