Get to know us better

Once you have been made an offer to study at York St John University, you will receive an invitation via email to attend one of our Applicant Days.


What is an Applicant Day?

Applicant Days offer the opportunity for you to get a feel for life at York St John. They are different to Open Days, in that they offer a more detailed insight into your course. They are also a great opportunity to take a look around our facilities and campuses, meet staff and students and ask any questions you may have. Applicant Days run from 9.30am until 3.30pm.

You will have the chance to tour our campus and see our accommodation options in the morning and discover more about your chosen course by spending time with academic staff and current students in the afternoon.

We also recommend that you take time to explore the beautiful city of York, which is just over the city walls opposite campus. Choosing where to go to university is a big decision, as you’ll be spending at least three years there, so get to know what this fantastic city has to offer! You can also find out more about what our students recommend in the city in our Student Life guide.

If you have any more questions check out our Frequently Asked Questions page.
