Templates

We've created branded templates for PowerPoint and Google Slides presentations, posters, certificates and stationery.

Whether you’re speaking on behalf of the University of York, or promoting something internally, presentations and posters should always look professional and follow our brand guidelines.

Presentation templates

Presentation templates

PowerPoint and Google Slides are useful supporting tools to help you engage your audience, whether you’re talking about your research at an overseas conference, explaining one of our services to a local audience, or promoting our degree courses to potential students.

Select from the PowerPoint and Google Slides template options listed below. PowerPoint files will be downloaded if selected, whereas clicking on a Google Slide template link will allow you to make copy you can instantly start using.

Templates

When you have chosen and opened a template, you can insert and edit the content to suit your needs. The template theme can be imported into other presentations as required:

Google Slides: Once you have a copy of the brand template in your Google Drive area, open a new or older presentation, click 'Import theme', navigate to the template in your Google Drive folder and select it.

PowerPoint: Once you have a copy of the brand template downloaded to your computer, open a new or older presentation. On the Design tab, in the Themes group, click the drop-down arrow. Now click 'Browse for Themes'. A new window will open, where you can select the brand template.

You can install the new layouts as PowerPoint templates. If you are using PowerPoint for Mac, we recommend using the files above as needed, rather than saving the templates. 

  • Right click > Save link as... on the links above.
  • Navigate to your Templates folder. This is usually in My Documents\Applications\Microsoft\Templates.
  • For the template to work, it needs to be saved with the extension .potx - you may find that your browser gives it a .ppt extension. Simply rename the file if this happens.
  • Save the file.
  • In PowerPoint, select File then New. The New Presentation Task Pane will come up on the right-hand side. From available templates and themes, select My templates. Select the template that you have downloaded to apply it to your presentation.
