Visiting students: undergraduate applications

We'll guide you through the application process from creating your account to submitting your application. Contact us if you need any further help.

Applications for the 2024/5 academic year will open at the beginning of March 2024.

Application guidance

Create an account

You will need to create an account to start the application process and set yourself up as a new user. We'll then send you a confirmation email with your login details.

Completing the application form

The application is divided into manageable sections, allowing you to fill it out at your own pace. You can begin your application, save your progress, and complete it at a later time. Please note that dates should be entered in the UK format (DD/MM/YYYY).

List your department and modules

State the departments you wish to study in at York, please put the main department you wish to study in as Department 1.

Undergraduate students who wish to study with us for a single semester can study in two departments. Undergraduate students who are applying to study for a full academic year, may study in up to three departments. Two in the first semester, adding a third in the second semester.

Upload your supporting documents

Documents required:

  • Academic transcript (all applicants)
  • English language certificate (if applicable)
  • Sample of your written work (if applicable).

See departmental requirements for more details.

Please ensure all necessary documents are uploaded for your application to be processed. Documents not in English must be accompanied by certified translations, along with the originals.


Once you've completed the application, please save and submit. The admissions team cannot access an application until it has been submitted.

Once you've submitted your application, you will receive a submission email. You should get a response to your application within a couple of weeks. Remember, applications are not processed until all the necessary documentation has been received.

If your application is accepted, you will receive a ‘Welcome’ email asking you to log in to your You@York account, where you can view your offer letter.

Third party applications

We will also consider applications through third party providers. If you are an adviser submitting the application on a student's behalf, you must enter your email address in the 'New User' section of the application.
