Exceptional students like you deserve an exceptional university experience. Find out more about what it's like to live and study here, and why the choice is York.

Welcome to York

My reasons for choosing York are based on its founding principles and how far we have come to achieve our world-leading reputation. York was established in 1963 to open up the opportunity to study at university “for people, whatever their social background, to lead genuinely fuller lives”.* Giving everyone the chance to succeed is a powerful part of our heritage, and that’s just as true today as when the University was founded.

Now, more than ever before, the world needs bright minds like yours. We look forward to welcoming you and equipping you with the tools to build a brighter future.

*Lord James, the first Vice-Chancellor of the University of York, 1963
