Hear from our students

York is a beautiful city and I was attracted to the feeling of community at the university. I am really glad to be part of the university and I always feel welcome. My classes are full of real-life examples that make them easier to understand, and the lecturers are very passionate, which makes learning more enjoyable. I can’t wait to graduate in the amazing York Minster!
