Academics are highly focused, with some courses comprising an entire courseload, while other departments allow you to take up to four courses. This is a great program for students with a strong academic focus in a particular area, as the course structure allows for intensive study.
The campus is several miles from the city center and features modern architecture and a friendly, welcoming student vibe. York is an incredibly well preserved medieval city, and its Roman walls, narrow lanes, and breathtaking Gothic stained-glass windows will captivate you with their historical resonance and sense of cultural continuity.
The city of York is located halfway between London and Edinburgh and has a year-round calendar of exciting events, among them a Viking Festival and a Science Week. You’re nearby the lovely countryside of Yorkshire and a train ride away from many quaint and authentic English villages and cities.
The Students’ Union sponsors student clubs and societies and events, and you’ll never run out of things to do. Campus life is centered around the College system, so you’ll live, and socialize in purpose-built Colleges, which provide an interdisciplinary context for your studies, as well as a community of fellow learners.
