Undergraduate programmes at York offer a wide range of options, giving you the opportunity of concentrating on areas of your subject that particularly interest you, or that fit in with your future plans.
There is a flexible approach to teaching methods, which are tailored to the particular demands of individual subjects. Many programmes include an element of tutorial teaching. You may also be taught through seminars (larger groups of ten–25) and lectures. Projects where you work either on your own or in a small group are a feature of many programmes. Many modules feature online resources supported by our Yorkshare Virtual Learning Environment.
At York we offer a number of programmes that allow you to combine the study of two or three disciplines.
Assessment methods differ from department to department. Some have no traditional examinations; others use a mix of these, plus coursework assessment, open papers, extended essay papers, dissertations and project work and, in some cases, assessment of oral contributions in tutorials.
The University is a stimulating place to study and provides excellent learning resources to support your academic work.
