What Durham has to offer is the ultimate Rugby and University experience.

Our philosophy at DURFC is that we strive to create an environment where students will develop not only their rugby and academic experience, but also their life & personal attributes. 


We genuinely feel that all of our students leave the University with an enhanced chance of following their chosen paths, be that in rugby or business. 


For some players this may mean training like a premiership player and preparing for full time professional rugby whilst getting a top class degree to cover all eventualities. 


For all players at every level it is about playing the best rugby you can whilst playing with some of your best friends who will become mates for life
