The Faculty of Arts - Unlimited Opportunities

When you study in the Faculty of Arts, you will not be confined to a small community but immersed in a global one. Every single arts student will have the opportunity to have an international experience of some sort during their time at York St John. Because we have forged so many links with academic institutions in Europe, the US and elsewhere, the options are almost limitless. 


But there are other opportunities nearer home for students to shine.....

Every year the Faculty holds a showcase event dedicated to supporting our students, who we see as the next wave of new artists and cultural commentators. CREATE allows Faculty students to display their talents to a wider audience.

Three York St John University Theatre graduates set up Six Lips, a 12 month internship at Bar Lane Studios in York. Roxanna Klimaszewska, Anna James and Hannah Wallace formed Six Lips  two years after the three girls met during their studies at York St John. Anna James, co-founder of Six Lips said: “The Theatre course at York St John gave us a glimpse of many performance styles, and Bar Lane is giving us the chance to flaunt that experience. The internship is all about developing our own style while turning it into a business.”
