We are located in the historic city of York, which is regularly named one of the best places to live and visit in the UK and has excellent transport connections to the rest of the country.

Our Gold Award from the Teaching Excellence Framework (TEF) was granted for our supportive environment that allows students from all backgrounds to achieve “consistently outstanding outcomes".

Our beautiful landscaped campus is home to our student accommodation, which means that students can explore the cultural offerings of a thriving city whilst being part of a supportive student community on campus. There are more than 200 student societies to get involved in and over 65 sports clubs for hobbyists and sports enthusiasts of all abilities.
