I really enjoy the teaching and the support from the department is really good. Every student is assigned a supervisor to help with academic and personal queries. They also help signpost you to other international student support as well.

A historic city

Enjoy our beautifully historic city of contrasts, from the Roman city walls and festival of Viking culture, to the world-famous Shambles.

York's also well-connected and easy to get to from anywhere in the world, with direct trains available to London and Manchester.

I chose to study at York because I really liked the environment of the campus and I thought it would be a comfortable place for me to study. I liked how green the campus was and being surrounded by wildlife. I also loved how beautiful and historic the city was. It’s a lovely place to live.
