Planning your day

Talks are scheduled throughout the day. We recommend planning your timetable for the day before you arrive, to ensure you fit in as much as possible.

Top Tips

1. Register online so that we can send you a copy of the programme to help you plan your day. 


2. When you arrive come to the registration desk – here we can give you a welcome pack that includes refreshment vouchers and a room sheet to help you find your way round.


3. Visit the Careers stand where you can find out about graduate jobs and how you can access a fantastic range of opportunities to develop your strengths and learn new skills.


4. Take a tour of the campus, led by current students. This will give you a real feel for York St John and the opportunity to speak to current students.


5. Get your questions answered. Use your time at York St John to get all the information you need. Ask a member of staff or Student Ambassador, or visit the Help Desk in Foss Sports Hall. If on the journey home you think of more questions, don’t worry, you can e-mail us at admissions@yorksj.ac.uk


6. Go see our accommodation. Our accommodation sites are open for you to view until 3.00pm. You will need to pick up a walking tour route and make your own way to the accommodation you wish to view. Please visit our website www.yorksj.ac.uk/accommodation in advance of your arrival to help you decide which accommodation site to visit. You can collect walking tour routes and ask any questions at the accommodation stand in the
Foss sports hall (Point C on the map). They should last 50 minutes. It will take up a large proportion of your day if you wish to visit more than one site.


7. Eat and relax in our dining room.


8. Speak to staff on the Students’ Union stand to get information on all the support, clubs, societies and events on offer for our students


9. Enjoy the City – take an open top bus (weather permitting) round the City of York (tickets available in Foss Sports Hall) and spend some time getting to know the city that you may be living in for the next few years.


10. Can’t fit it all in? If you decide to apply to York St John and are made an offer by us which does not require you to attend for interview, we will invite you to a post offer Visit Day. At our Visit Days you will have a second chance to find out more about York St John, the course and the city.
