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.

The University of York is such a stunning campus, dedicated lecturers and has a massive library. I am a student nurse and the course is very full on, there's a lot of content to cover but the staff at the uni do their best to facilitate the work.


I loved UoY! The campus is so beautiful and everything is conveniently located. The collegiate system creates a great college atmosphere in terms of sports competition and nights out.
