    I have read several previous posts from River85 on TSR, and I get the impression he wants to promote Durham University to be one of the very top universities in the UK outside of Oxbridge. I would like to look at the evidence to see whether the data, such as there is, can back this up or not.

    1) UK rankings:-

    - Times/Sunday Times: 5th
    - CUG: 5th
    - Guardian: 4th

    2) World rankings:-

    - THES - 97th
    - QS - =78th
    - ARWU - 201-300

    3) REF Ranking - 20th

    4) REF ranking by research power - 18th/20th

    5) TEF - Silver

    6) Annual income 2016/17 - £361 million


    Based on the above data, I have come to the conclusion that Durham University, overall, is not a high performing academic university in terms of teaching or research. At least not top 10 in the UK.
