Sharifah University of York student

Sharifah from Malaysia

Bachelor's degree in Economics at the University of York
 

My University of York degree is a great balance of theory and application. My academic supervisor has been very supportive of my varied interests, encouraging me to pursue internships and the amazing opportunities York has to offer.

University of York Student Chloe

Chloe from Hong Kong

Bachelor's degree in Psychology at the University of York
 

As an international student, I feel really supported. As well as allocating me a personal adviser, my department appointed an international supervisor for me. We meet regularly to talk about how I am getting on with both academic and non-academic life.

At the University of York, our world-class research informs our excellent teaching, and we believe both should be used to benefit people and societies globally. We look forward to welcoming you to the University of York.
