Research & Scholarly Activity

Research and scholarship should be at the heart of all Higher Education provision and New College Durham seeks to support both staff and students within the development of these activities in order to aid in the provision of outstanding learning and training.

Research involves the generation of new knowledge whilst scholarship exists to underpin teaching, involving activities with the potential to:


  • create or affirm knowledge and / or expertise of a subject or discipline
  • develop or enhance understanding of a subject or discipline
  • develop or enhance methodologies for the delivery of a subject or discipline

This section allows for these activities to be shared with peers, disseminated across the institution and beyond.
