"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.”
