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 £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.
