Teaching and learning excellence


As a York student you will benefit from being taught by some of the world’s leading academics. Our research-led teaching means you'll be taught by academics who are involved in research that changes the world, the people who literally wrote the book!

To get a feel for the kind of research we do take a look at some of our major research highlights from the past 50 years.

"Throughout my time at York I had the chance to learn from professors who were also conducting research in their own fields of study. Staff I worked with regularly shared new discoveries and research with their students which meant I was up to date with happenings in my subject."

Nick, Philosophy graduate (2012)

Teaching and assessment

Teaching and assessment methods are tailored to the particular demands of individual subjects. For information about how you will be taught and assessed see the 'Teaching' and 'Assessment' tabs on the individual course pages.

Combined courses

If you're interested in studying more than one subject, you could take a combined course, for example Politics and Philosophy, or Maths and Physics.
