Founded on principles of excellence, equality and opportunity for all, the University of York is proud to create an environment that attracts the best students from all over the world. What we gain from our diverse communities is immeasurable. We want all our students to feel they are an integral part of the York community, and together we will create an inclusive culture where everyone can contribute to university life, knowledge and growth.

In the SusMat0 Centre for Doctoral Training, we actively encourage applications from underrepresented groups in STEM, including women, applicants from minority ethnic backgrounds, applicants with disabilities, and those with caring responsibilities. We will work together to create a cohort where diversity is recognised, valued and celebrated. We will proactively advance equality and inclusive practice in our research activity, in our teaching, within the campus environment and in the experiences we offer to postgraduate researchers.
