Professional partnerships

York St John University is strongly rooted within its region, with a large proportion of students drawn from the Yorkshire and Humber area. It also works actively with local and regional businesses, such as Nestle, CPP and Aviva, to add to the wealth, skills and welfare of its community. Listed below are a few examples of York St John’s areas of community, partnership and professional activity.

York St John University is part of the Higher York Lifelong Learning Network along with York College, Askham Bryan College, University of York and the City of York Council.

The University is actively involved with different areas of the public and voluntary sector, including NHS Trusts, the NHS Institute for Improvement and Innovation, York City Council, Joseph Rowntree Trust, Leonard Cheshire Disability, North Yorkshire Sport Partnership, a range of LEAs and directly with schools and colleges. Much of this work is supported by business development staffs based in the University’s faculties and supported centrally by the Pro Vice Chancellor’s external community engagement work.

The Phoenix Centre was launched at York St John in 2009 through a pioneering initiative led by Science City York. It provides very low cost accommodation, mentoring and skills development for graduate start-up creative and digital businesses in York and attracts talented entrepreneurs into the city to gain added value by working alongside University expertise and facilities.
