     Walking through cobbled streets full of historical gems, explore
     the city’s endless array of independent places to shop, eat and
     drink. It’s a great city to enjoy with friends, show off to visitors
     from home, or simply unwind after a busy day at university.”

“Studying abroad during my time at York
increased my confidence and academic ability
dramatically. I spent a year at Beloit College in
the USA, where I was able to work in the college’s
on-campus museum and develop my interest in
Museum Studies. Now I’m back for my final year,
I’m incorporating academic techniques I learned
at Beloit into my dissertation and further study.”

     “York is a great city and the University itself exceeded my
     expectations. The teaching fuelled my interest in learning and
     pushed me further than I expected on to a PhD. The pastoral
     system gave me the personal support I needed to succeed
     academically. And away from my studies, the University Caving
     Club gave me the self-confidence and the sense of adventure
     that carried me all the way to Antarctica.”

Students’ Union

     “I had only done a tiny bit of rowing before coming to uni, so I joined
     the novice programme. It was the friendliest environment you could
     hope for, and amazing for finding lifelong friends. After being the
     novice men’s captain in my second year, I’m now the club president.
     Rowing has changed my life, giving me focus and a much-needed
     break from my degree. It challenges me to achieve the best I can in
     everything I do.”
