Overall I really enjoyed my time here at YSJ. I loved everything about it and my tutors (BA Hons English Language and Linguistics) were fantastic. They were so helpful, replied to emails quickly, were helpful during tutorials and throughout lectures and seminars. They always seemed willing to help and really passionate about their specialisms.

Great university a stone throw away from one of the most picturesque places in England. From moving in there has been as much support as possible given by the university alongside a friendly and vibrant atmosphere. The night life is fantastic.

I LOVE YORK ST JOHN! it is way better than york uni and everyone is so nice! York is a great city to go out in, just be careful of the river! The careers service is really supportive and i love my course and everyone on it, it is small (about 40 people) so you get to know everyone too!

Organise your finances and know what you can afford. Also with regards to money, if you want a job, get handing out CVs the second you arrive. Within a week, other new students with the same idea have nabbed all the vacancies and if you want a good job in york you need to act quick or you will be left handing out flyers for nightclubs at 3am!

Massive epic end of the world club nights are just an excuse to charge you over £10 for entry to somewhere that is usually free or only a few pounds. The multiple venues do not mean anything as they will all be full, so realistically you can get into about 2 venues i personally suggest Kuda and Salvo!. The cheap drink deals are a myth with these nights

do not become trapped within your flat. All too often, people in a flat will just hang out with each other and not bother to move in wider circles, and after a few weeks a sort of cabin fever can ensue. You were put in a flat randomly with these other people, you can not be expected to get on and hang out with every single one. Try and make friends with people in other flats earlier on, before people get locked in their comfort zone

Everyone hit is a stumbling block at least once over the course of university, even if they do not show it. Some adapt better to the lifestyle than others, it is just how it is. do not be arrogant - noone cares if you got 5 A*s at A level, chances are you are living with someone who got 6

Spend more time than anything else in the company of those you live with. they will be your friends for at least a year. The people that did not make the big effort in the first few days and weeks seemed to get less from the overall experience of university.
