Founded on principles of excellence, equality and opportunity for all, the University of York opened in 1963 with just 230 students. In less than 50 years we have become one of the world's leading universities, carving out a reputation as an academic powerhouse where a clear focus on excellence has secured national and international recognition alongside longer established institutions. Situated walking-distance from the historic city of York, the University enjoys a beautiful location in one of Europe’s finest cities.

A member of the elite Russell Group of universities, we are a dynamic, research-intensive university committed to the development of life-saving discoveries and new technologies to tackle some of the most pressing global challenges. There are now over 30 academic departments and research centres and the student body has expanded to nearly 16,000.

Students at York are taught by academics who are leading experts in their fields. This was confirmed by the recent REF, carried out in 2014, that placed the University amongst the leading institutions in the UK for research. The proportion of research activity of world-leading, 4* status is amongst the highest of any UK university, and York is rated tenth out of 155 higher education institutions for the impact of its research. Eight of the University’s academic departments were ranked in the top five for their subject while twelve were in the top ten in terms of impact.
York has a strong reputation for student support and international students form an integral part of the community on campus. Currently just over 20% of our students come from outside the UK and in 2014 students voted York as the country's top university for international student experience.
