Durham University
7.8 / 10 Overall Satisfaction
(based on 92 ratings in 2018)
In a few words
"Compared to say, a London uni, Durham does not seem nearly as diverse. However, as a woman of colour, I don't feel particularly victimised or anything. I just feel like a minority, which I am anyway. The city of Durham isn't nearly as diverse as a big city, that's a given. This creates an image, albeit an unwarranted one, of Durham being a very exclusive place. When in reality, that's not true. Its just an image thing, one which I suspect will diminish over the years."
