Founded on principles of excellence, equality and opportunity for all, the University of York opened in 1963 with just 230 students.

Ranked 28th most international University in the world in the 2017 Times Higher Education (THE) rankings, the university of York has carved out a reputation as an academic powerhouse with 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. The University ranked 10th for the impact and influence of research and 14th overall in the UK Government assessment of the quality of research in the Research Excellence Framework 2014.
