More Than a Degree

Since its inception 175 years ago York St John has delivered high-quality professionally-relevant programmes; commencing from our foundations in teacher training through the broadening of our curriculum in the mid-1970s and our continued developments today.

Our latest data shows 96% of graduates are in work or further study within six months of graduation; a record that surpasses the majority of other universities in the United Kingdom.

York St John University is committed to developing the best opportunities for our students and, working directly with employers, we proactively build partnerships with industry to ensure that our programmes of study meet 21st Century employers’ needs and create the global graduates of the future.

We aim to ensure that our students are equipped with the skills and knowledge that they need to pursue the career of their choice.

At our city centre campus, students are encouraged to seize the many opportunities that being at university provides, such as sports and other clubs, mentoring, volunteering, studying a language, and working as a researcher. In addition YSJU offers a vibrant overseas exchange programme with students broadening their skills and experience in all corners of the globe. Plus our Jobs & Careers team service can offer students a variety of work experience placements and internships.

York St John University is a great place to build a successful career and offers our students more than a degree helping them to achieve their career goals.
