Due to start a degree preparation course with us?

Any other questions?

Will there be a Welcome Week when I arrive?  

The first week of term will be Welcome Week, giving you (and your parents or guardians if they are with you) an opportunity to meet your teachers and classmates. You can take a tour of the University of York campus and facilities, and join social activities to help you meet new friends. We will also help with practicalities, such as registering with a doctor and finding the local supermarket.  

What if I don’t meet degree requirements on my course?  

Our degree preparation courses are specially designed for international students, and helping them get ready for university in the UK, so our degree progression rates are very high. However, if you aren’t able to start your chosen degree after passing your course, you can make use of our University Placement Service, which guarantees you a place at a UK university.
