The Durham Chinese Students and Scholars Association (CSSA) is one of the Subsidiary Associations of CSSA-UK which has existed for more than 30 years. It is a non-political, nonreligious, and non-profit organization. It organizes, sponsors, and supports various social and cultural activities for the 2,000 Chinese students and scholars in Durham and Queen's Campus. We contact with Chinese Embassy and aim to provide any help for Durham Chinese students. 

Every year we help hundreds of Chinese students on life and study, hold welcome parties for freshers, give guidance on how to adapt in British university life, hold career-seeking workshops, charity balls, Asian Festival, Chinese New Year Concert and etc. 

We also welcome students from other countries who enjoy Chinese culture and language to join! We have FREE Mandarin and Cantonese lessons, traditional Chinese parties during Spring Festivals, etc.
