The Department of English and Related Literature welcomes applications from overseas undergraduate students wishing to spend a year, two terms or a single term at York.
Every application is carefully considered by Tania Demetriou, the Department's Co-ordinator for Overseas Students, who will be looking for evidence of ability, commitment and interest in the study of literature. Your application should also include:
Applications should normally be submitted by 30 June for admission in October, or by 31 October for admission in January.
For specific queries on undergraduate study you can contact the Department's Co-ordinator for Overseas Students by email at email@example.com or by fax at +44 1904-323372.
Inquiries relating to undergraduate Erasmus exchange programmes should be directed in the first instance to the Department’s Coordinator for Erasmus Students, Michele Campopiano (firstname.lastname@example.org). Dr Campopiano will work with other staff who are responsible for particular exchanges with Bologna, Rome, Lausanne, Seville, and Åbo.
The Department has established a postgraduate ERASMUS exchange with the literature departments of the University of Paris and the University of Bologna. Students selected by these departments from Paris and Bologna should apply to the University of York for acceptance on to the MA in Romantic and Sentimental Literature. Please mark all applications "Visiting Graduate Programme (ERASMUS)". The host department in this case is the Department of English and Related Literature; initial enquiries should be directed to Emma Major (email@example.com) or fax at +44 1904-323372.
Visiting students from Norway (both undergraduate and postgraduate) registered with the University's Norwegian Study Centre also have the opportunity to study in this Department.
York's International Team acts as a contact point for overseas students at all stages. They will be happy to answer any questions you may have - for example about admissions matters, or about the University in general - before you come here. They may also be able to put you in touch with a current or former student from your home country who can tell you about their experience of York.
The University provides detailed immigration advice about procedures for entry into the UK as a Student or Student Visitor.
