With around 20,000 students and thousands of tourists visiting the city all year round, York really is a lively place to be.
York is an awesome place to live (it really is!), it’s easy to get across on foot or by bike, but big enough that there’s loads to do, always something to see and so many places to eat and drink. We’re sure that you’ll feel at home and that you’ll love it as much as we do, while you’re studying here and long afterwards too!
It’s also a great place to study, and York St John University is right at the heart of the city. While you’re a student with us you could join in with Students’ Union activities or perhaps take up a sport or hobby. A course with us will really give you the edge and some real-world experience which will set you on the right path to employment once you’ve graduated.
