If you're already studying at another university, you can apply to spend time at York as a visiting student. You'll be fully integrated into academic and social life here on campus and in the city, during a period of full-time supervised study.

We welcome undergraduate and postgraduate visiting students from across the world. You can join us through programmes such as Erasmus+, individual university partnerships, third party providers and country-specific government initiatives, or as an independent applicant.

You can study with us for one term (typically ten weeks), two terms, or even a full academic year. Full credit transfer to your home university is usually possible.

York also participates in the Brazilian government's Ciência sem Fronteiras scheme. It enables Brazilian students to receive a scholarship to study in the UK.

Explore student life

 "York is safe and quiet enough to concentrate on your work, but big enough to enjoy yourself outside of your academic life. There are lots of beautiful historical spots, nice cafes and restaurants, and pubs in town, and it’s a good location to travel throughout the UK. If you want a good academic environment, in a fun and interesting city, York is the place for you.”
