University of York


Study at York

Thrive at York –  a Russell Group university with a global reputation for inspirational and life-changing research.

Through a culture of mutual respect and rigorous curiosity, we work in partnership with organisations and industries across disciplines and continents to find better ways to research and address the global scientific, social and environmental challenges of our time. This shared purpose of public good builds global connections and enriches your education.

You’ll experience the nurturing impact of collaboration within the University, too. We’re one of only a few UK universities to have an independent student-led organisation specifically for postgraduates — our Graduate Students’ Association (GSA). The GSA aims to provide a social community for postgraduates through our dedicated postgraduate welcome week and regular events.
