The University of York has been welcoming students from all over the world since its establishment in 1963. With approximately 16,000 students, York provides a stimulating academic and social experience within a friendly and welcoming environment

York's academic program is characterized by small group teaching which can include a mix of lectures, seminars (groups of 10-15) and in some departments, tutorials (1-4 students). Students in science departments also take practical classes.

Outside of class, you'll enjoy opportunities to join any of the University's many student clubs and societies. If you have a penchant for media and communications, you can contribute your talents to the University's radio and television stations, and student newspapers and magazines. Additionally, you'll enjoy a full schedule of concerts, films, plays and lectures organized on campus.

You can take advantage of excursions planned by the University's Overseas Students' Association and Outdoor Society. The excursions travel to scenic and historic areas near York and throughout the United Kingdom.
