I chose to study archaeology as I'm very interested in the conservation of historic buildings and the management of historic interiors. I love the historic aspect of the city of York, and the King's Manor is a beautiful place to study. It's also great being so close to town.
The archaeology department staff are so friendly and helpful. The course teaching consists mainly of small lectures and seminar groups which means you can get a lot of individual attention, and you get to know everyone on your course and can build friendships very easily.
York is a very beautiful city. It's big enough so you have everything you need in the town, but is still small enough that you can meet people. I also love the fact that in York you can be civilised and go to coffee shops in the day, but on a night out you can bump into loads of friends in the bars. It's the perfect balance.
