At York St John University we believe sport should be a vehicle for positive social change. Our approach will be clear in everything we do – what we teach, what we research and how we practise sport.

Overview of our Sport courses

We are interested in helping athletes perform better, recover faster and train more effectively. However, we are also interested in how we can use sport to challenge social inequality and prejudice, and how we can ensure that everyone benefits from sport regardless of their background.

We are looking for students who share our values and aspire to change both the world and their community through sport.
