What our students say

"Not only does the University possess a welcoming and warm environment, but the city of York is in itself an attraction. The city is beautiful and while compact, offers a multitude of things to do and see."
Kirby, MA Literature Student

"In addition to its friendly academic community and the opportunity to live in an historic city of winding streets and myriad second-hand bookshops, York offers the Berrick Saul Building, a beautiful study space for postgraduates."
Bethany, MA Literature Student

"I knew that the teaching staff on this MA would provide me not only with a stimulating and challenging academic environment in which to pursue my interests but also, more importantly, with the high level of pastoral care and support I have found to be unfailingly present throughout my time at York so far."
Cuifen, MA Literature Student

"If you are an international student and are considering studying in the UK, I encourage you to place York at the top of your list."
Charles, PhD in Literature
