We look forward to welcoming you!

In 2020/21, our taught postgraduate academic year has two different start dates - one in September and one in January.

For January 2021 starts, your official start date at the University of York is Monday 11 January 2021 and there will be a range of welcome and induction events throughout this week. Teaching on your course will commence on Monday 18 January 2021.

If you are unable to get to campus for your official start date of Monday 11 January, we will provide online teaching and support so you can participate from wherever you are until you can join us in York.

If you will be travelling to the UK from a non-exempt country and are required to self-isolate (quarantine) on arrival in the UK, we may be able to offer free quarantine accommodation from Monday 4 January 2021. The University recommends students arrive on campus no earlier than Monday 4 January. If you plan to arrive from Monday 4 January - or before 4 January - and need quarantine accommodation, please contact accommodation@york.ac.uk to discuss your options. If you are not living in University accommodation, you will need to contact your landlord to find out whether they can support you to arrive earlier than your contract start date if you need to self-isolate.
