We have establised ties with several Chinese Universities, particularly Renmin University in Beijing, Nanjing University and Fudan University (Shanghai). Dr Jon Howlett was a visiting scholar for three months at Fudan’s prestigious International Center for Studies of Chinese Civilization in 2014.
Our efforts to establish and deepen relationships with these Chinese partners have created opportunities for research collaborations, given opportunities for postgraduate students to study overseas, and have promoted closer intellectual ties focused on key historical and historiographical issues.

British Sources China website

York historians have worked with colleagues from Renmin University to develop the York-Renmin Sources for British History portal, an online resource which enables Chinese students and academics to gain free access to British primary source material. The unique site includes introductions in Chinese, and can be expanded as additional sources are digitised.

Studying with us

We have welcomed a number of undergraduate students from across China to study with us in recent years, and are fortunate to also have a growing community of Chinese postgraduate students.

我享受约克的环境。这里风景秀丽,历史悠久。约克大学是一所国际化大学,我在这里结交了许多朋友,参加了一些有意义的社团,这些经历让我很快融入了大学生活。历史系的老师们平易近人,在学习上给予了我极大的帮助。循序渐进的历史课程让我的思考能力和写作能力稳步提升。Writing and Language Skills Centre, Student Hub, Information Centre,ISA等机构不仅帮忙解决各种问题并开展各式各样的活动,极大地丰富了学生的课余生活。约克大学气氛和谐友好,学校员工乐于助人。我对在约克大学的经历非常满意。Junyi, former student
