I absolutely love the fact that we have colleges in York as they really become a part of your identity. I’m a part of Derwent college and it has played a big part of my time as a student in York. Most of my friends are in Derwent as well and I love the fact that it is an incredibly social college and we get plenty of opportunities to come back to campus even as Second and Third years.

We take into account universities who mark more rigorously, eg University of Delhi, where we usually accept 55% or higher.
