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.
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. The templates are provided in two formats, depending on the aspect ratio of the screen you intend to present on.
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.
You can create a simple poster or notice using the University branded poster template for A3 or A4 posters. It can be edited in the same way as any Microsoft Word document.
Functions will vary according to the version of Microsoft on your computer and whether you are using a Mac or a PC. These instructions are for Microsoft Word for PCs.
The placeholder fields in the template can be edited as follows:
Save your document in the usual way or convert to a PDF, then print.
