Founded in 1841 and receiving the title of 'University' in 2006, York St John has a long and proud tradition of educating students. Its campus is just a stone's throw from the vibrant and bustling city centre of York. The 11-acre site is in a beautiful setting facing the world-famous York Minster, where our students can look forward to graduating.

With over GBP 100m invested in the campus in the last ten years this is an opportunity to study in exciting and cutting-edge buildings and facilities, from the renovated Victorian chapel to the award winning De Grey Court. As a relatively small university, we get to know our students well and work hard to help you realise your own potential. Our students leave with a real feeling of not only succeeding academically, but also with a belief that they have grown as a person.
