Overview

The University of York is one of the UK’s prestigious Russell Group universities, committed to delivering an outstanding teaching and learning experience and the very best research. We combine academic excellence with an inclusive culture, equipping our students to prosper in the global workplace.

From small beginnings in 1963, we are now home to 17,000 students from more than 140 countries. York academics lead in their fields, with worldwide impact and a strong link between teaching and research.

We were ranked as 14th overall and 10th for impact of our research in the most recent assessment of UK research (Times Higher Education World University Content 2014, excluding specialist institutions which submitted fewer than four units of assessment). We also received a Gold rating from the Teaching Excellence Framework for the “outstanding levels of stretch” and the supportive environment that allows students from all backgrounds to achieve “consistently outstanding outcomes."

York was named the best place to live in Britain by The Sunday Times, 2018, which noted that the University added “vibrancy” and “intellectual heft” to the city. Our beautiful landscaped campus is within walking distance of York’s historic city centre, with excellent connections to the rest of the UK.
