About this university
Around 4,500 students travel from over 150 countries to study in Durham each year and the university takes part in a number of international schemes including the Erasmus, Exchange and Study Abroad and Science Without Borders. As well as the normal services open to any student, there are also specific groups such as the International Students groups in the Student Union to help those from outside the UK integrate with their new surroundings. The colleges also have advice and help on hand for students in a range of topics including social care matters. During most of their time at the university, students are associated with a college and many live there for their first year then chose to "live-out" for the second before having both options for their remaining time. Colleges provide common rooms for students with other facilities including computer rooms, libraries and gyms. Most of the colleges have their own sports teams that take part in collegiate leagues as well as their own theatre company and even an orchestra. There are around 130 clubs and organisations across campus including special interest, service organisations and those involved with student government. The Durham Student's Union provides funding for these along with the Fresher's Ball and other social events. There are also some 45 volunteer projects to be involved with in the surrounding area.
