I really enjoyed my time at the University of York. The variety of societies on offer meant I could explore my interests and find people who share my hobbies. I could also easily walk to the city centre from the campus in a few minutes.

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.
