Vibrant and Personal

St Chad’s is one of the oldest and most popular colleges in Durham. Most years, our students achieve among the highest academic results in Durham.

Established in 1904 as an independent hall with an Anglican foundation, we are now a recognised college of Durham University. With 350 undergrads and 150 postgrads, we deliberately remain a small human-sized college; but that doesn’t stop us from having the highest concentration of research staff and library resources in Durham.

St Chad’s is a progressive, liberal-minded college, where it’s okay to be yourself. Our manageable size enables us to offer personal support to all our students in a world-class research environment.

Pinned Information

St Chad’s College is delighted to be able to offer a number of annual scholarships and bursaries for undergraduate and continuing postgraduates to encourage applications to Durham and St Chad’s from students from less affluent economic backgrounds and under-represented communities, and to provide support, as required, to help our students who find themselves in financial need. These awards are funded through the generosity of St Chad’s College alumni, fellows and friends.
