A brilliant city

Why York is great for students

York is a beautiful destination for tourists and locals. It was named the best place to live in the UK in 2018 and the best northern city in 2019 by the Sunday Times.

York is within easy reach of multiple major cities and close to beautiful coastal towns and glorious countryside.

The magnificent medieval York Minster (where you'll graduate) is at the heart of the city. York's creative scene and status as the first UNESCO City of Media Arts mean we're proudly contemporary too.
