The University has a diverse international community with students from many different countries. There are over 2,400 international students studying at the University of York from over 100 countries, making up almost 20% of the student population.
This year there are a maximum of two bursaries available to International Students, each worth £1000 per year. The award of these bursaries will be based on academic potential and financial need. Please download the application form (Physics Scholarships for Overseas Students (PDF , 116kb)) for more details. The deadline for applications is 30 June for entry in the following October. International students may also wish to apply for a University scholarship. Note that it is possible to hold both a Departmental bursary and a University scholarship at the same time.
The University's International Office will provide you with all the information and advice you need to make your application, and will provide support for you during your time at the University.
There is also an International Students' Association which is a student body that represents the specific interests of the increasing number of international students at York. All international students, undergraduate and postgraduate, are automatically made members.
Applications from international students are very welcome. We are happy to consider these qualifications on an individual basis, as long as the syllabus equates to the equivalent of A-level standard and has appropriate physics and mathematics content.
All international students whose first language is not English must satisfy the University's English requirement. This can be covered by one of the following qualifications:
|IELTS||TOEFL Internet||TOEFL Computer||TOEFL Paper||CAE||CPE||GCSE / IGCSE English Lang|
|6.0 overall and in each section||79||213||550||A||C||C|
CAE = Cambridge Certificate of Advanced English
CPE = Cambridge Certificate of Proficiency in English
IGCSE = International GCSE in English as a 2nd Language
All international students at the University of York are eligible for a certain amount of free tuition from the Centre for English Language Teaching; the amount of free support is managed by a points system.
