Wentworth Online Community

Whether you are two thousand miles away or two minutes down the road, as a distance learner you are part of the University of York's Community. 

Student network/Alumni

All alumni can participate on YorkSpace which offers an opt-in alumni directory and professional networks in fields such as finance, management, media and the public sector.


Departments and programmes may also keep in touch with alumni through their own networks. Speak to your programme administrator for further information.

Student bloggers


We'd love for members of Wentworth Online Community to get to know each other and share a little about their journeys as distance learners - just a little bit! If you'd be happy to provide some basic information about yourself, what you're studying, why you're studying, how you're finding your study and so on, (as little or as much information as you like) please contact Tracy, your College Officer, to discuss getting started. We'd love to have more students join Sam Fernley (above) as vloggers or bloggers!

York Profiles & Mentors

In York Profiles & Mentors you can be a resource for fellow students, access a resource, or both! The choice is yours.

Be a resource: Commit as little or as much time as you want- you can share your experience in a number of ways:

  • becoming a mentor
  • answering some questions
  • providing your career profile 

You can develop and learn by:

  • viewing Profiles
  • asking questions
  • finding a mentor


As a distance learner it is very likely that you are already on a career path and in employment. You may be studying your programme to advance your career, as a requirement for your position or as a stepping stone to a career change. Whatever your employment situation the Careers Service is available to support and guide you, both now whilst you are studying and also after you have graduated. They have many useful resources and services available on their website and through the Careers Gateway . There is also a section of Careers related resources on the Wentworth Online Resources page.
