If you are considering studying history at York then you might find it useful to visit the department and university prior to making your application.
The University holds two Open Days every year. These provide you with an initial opportunity to explore the campus, meet members of the University’s departments and find out more about studying and living in York.
In 2012, the open days will be taking place on 4 July and 29 September. Booking is essential in order to attend. Please see:
For those booked on the 4 July Open Day, you can find the programme of events for History below, in order to help plan your day. This will be available in hard copy on the day from the Vanbrugh welcome area and the History admissions desk in the Exhibition Centre. We look forward to meeting you.
Our programme of History Visit Days are smaller and more informal occasions, open to all prospective students who have been offered a place to study history at York. If your UCAS application is successful you will receive an invitation to attend one of the Visit Days. You will have the chance to meet current students and lecturers, spend time on campus and in the department, and find out what it would be like to study here and be a part of our vibrant and lively undergraduate community. Take a look at our standard visit day programme to see what the day is likely to involve.
These days are only open to those who have received an offer to study here. Invitations will be sent to you by Student Recruitment and Admissions as soon as possible. If you do not receive one within a few weeks of being made an offer, get in touch with them direct on 01904 323537 or email email@example.com.
