Durham University
7.8 / 10 Overall Satisfaction
(based on 92 ratings in 2018)
In a few words
"Durham does not have a diverse student body, at least from the perspective of a person of colour. The vast majority of the student body is made up of white, middle class, either grammar school or private school educated students. This is not at all a problem, but it appears the university tends to attract a certain demographic. In recent years, the university has made attempts to increase outreach to different, ethnically and socially diverse backgrounds and this is only anticipated to continue and grow."
