Contextual offer scheme

We want to give more people a fair chance to get into higher education.

York St John was founded on the belief that helping more people from a wide mix of backgrounds to access education benefits both individuals and society.

To support this, we have created a unique contextual offer scheme. Our scheme takes into account more than just your grades when we make you an offer on one of our courses.
