Social activities programme

Socialise with other international students and see what Durham and the North East of England has to offer with our extensive social activities programme. You can also explore the rest of the UK to further enrich your cultural experience.

Through our exciting events programme you could:

  • Explore York's beautiful walled city and its Roman, Viking, and Medieval heritage.
  • Visit Edinburgh, the capital of Scotland, with its historic, hilly-landscapes, castle and scotch whiskey!
  • Discover Whitby, a traditional seaside resort with a rich maritime history, and be inspired by its ruined abbey and church on the cliff.
  • Experience the spectacular scenery in the Lake District, take a boat trip or visit one of the many quirky market towns.
  • Take part in Christmas festivities, such as ice skating and enjoying a delicious Christmas dinner.

Please note, social activities incur an additional cost. Places are limited and are allocated on a first come first served basis.
