York visits you

We offer a number of informative and inspirational talks in schools and colleges about York, as well as impartial advice about higher education. Sessions are delivered by staff and in some cases by York students or recent graduates.

During 2020/21, our Access and Outreach programmes and Student Recruitment activity will be delivered virtually with some face-to-face events. We will be guided by government guidelines and University policy. We will work directly with programme participants and our school and college partners to keep you informed of progress.

Our talks can be delivered as classroom talks, or at your careers or parents' evenings. If you have a specific topic in mind let us know - our talks can be tailored to the needs of you and your pupils.
