Higher York

The University of York is a key player in the Higher York partnership between Askham Bryan College, the University of York, York College, York St John University and the City of York Council. Craven College is an associate member.

The partnership focuses on three priority areas:

  • Promoting Higher Education participation
  • Enhancing graduate employability
  • Encouraging student community engagement

Through activities in these areas, Higher York helps its partners to deliver a number of their key institutional strategic objectives. The partnership also faces outwards into the city, the region, and the world beyond, and has a role to play in supporting the economic ambitions of York and the wider Local Enterprise Partnership areas.
