University of York

The Fulbright University of York Award covers the first year of any master's or doctoral degree programme offered by the university.

Founded on principles of excellence, equality and opportunity for all, the University of York opened in 1963 with just 230 students. In less than 50 years they have become one of the world's leading universities, carving out a reputation as an academic powerhouse where a clear focus on excellence has secured national and international recognition alongside longer established institutions.

Situated walking-distance from the historic city of York, the university enjoys a beautiful location in one of Europe’s finest cities.

A member of the elite Russell Group of universities, York is a dynamic, research-intensive university committed to the development of life-saving discoveries and new technologies to tackle some of the most pressing global challenges. There are now over 30 academic departments and research centres and the student body has expanded to nearly 16,000.
