Hear from our graduates

Our graduates have gone on to a wide range of careers: in local and central government, finance, IT management, the media and beyond. 

As a Philosophy graduate, I support government departments in executing post-18 education policies and often liaise with government legal teams too. During my time at York, I started the University's first student-led social mobility society on campus called The 93% Club York.

I learned so much during my time at York, from analysis and structuring arguments to creative problem-solving. I knew being a lawyer would cater to my desire to learn, and would push me to think outside the box. I graduated with my Philosophy degree and went on to complete a Graduate Diploma in Law.
