Overview

York was founded in 1963 on principles of advancement for all anchored by the highest standards of academic excellence. It is one of just a handful of universities less than 60 years old to have advanced so quickly into the World Top 100 league table. York believes passionately in research-informed teaching and in the application of its research for the benefit of people and society. The university has expanded into two campuses, Heslington West and Heslington East which are a short walk or 5 minute bus ride from each other.

Really pretty campus, easy to access everywhere on site as it’s within walking distance. The collegiate system is really good as it makes you feel part of a family

The campus has a great buzz around it during the day. Most of the facilities on campus are great as they’re just a walk away.
