York is an amazing city, without York, I won't be able to enjoy the university that much. I love York and the community a lot. There are a lot of opportunities to study abroad, study exchange (but I am keen to have more optional modules)
York Strengths programme is useful but it could be better I wish York could give more bespoke careers advice because PPE is such a broad course, I wish we had more direction of what we should do, I want more employability embedding into the curriculum as well. Academic supervisors have been doing a decent job helping us with our careers supports.
Like most: the interdisciplinary aspect. Helpful staff Like least: the inconsistency of assessment, marking and feedback.
The Students' Union has been doing a great job. They are trying very hard to represent students and have more facilities - it is very hard, as I read in their weekly newsletter. It is quite sad that we don't have a SU building like Leeds or Sheffield. My course always has at least one course representatives and they are very welcoming and friendly.
Good number of study spaces, excellent food but a bit expensive. Staff are really nice.
Yes definitely. The bus system is very bad though but it is more of the Council and university's responsibility rather than the Union's responsibility if that makes sense.
There are so many of them! We have college and university sports societies and everyone is so welcoming!
I've loved it
Not really heard much from them
Reading is a bit much
Don't really know what they do
Location is good condition is perfect, cost is a bit high
East is in a good location, clubs are far
I am not a part of any societies but they're good
Not very good, not much support if you need it - it's not advertised
I have loved York for all it's given me!
Consistent careers fairs + emails
Good but some boring content/lectures
Good representation but some useless staff
All very good for price, could do with areas
Not enough study spaces
Lots of culture and nightlife/clubs
Offers 63 sports and 200+ societies - so much!
Mostly good - more mental health services needed
Yes - lots of careers activities including York Strengths
Department is providing well enough
All good little expensive
Good - readily available.
Enjoying uni a lot so far though I wish there were a few more weeks of teaching considering the cost
York Strengths events in first year are a good way to identify your strengths
Condition, location are good love being close to class but it is very expensive especially considering the quality veggie options in catering
A good distance to town + everything on campus is easy to get to
Has a lot of societies to join, definitely something for everyone
Informative and engaged with most aspects, made to feel independent and more confident.
Put on York Strength days and offer career journey help and lectures
Some lectures don't seem to fit with the course content
They only really send out emails, and don't make themselves very involved
Location and cost are fine but safety and condition are a 2 at best
It's a little far from town but there is good public transport available
Lots of options and easy to access a list of them online
I don't personally make use of support offered but I am aware there is a lot available if I needed it.
Don't know too much
Good location etc. only one toilet/bathroom, no large, unsafe live storage
Alcuin very expensive and unnecessary letting time, but good standard
Sports can be severely underfunded
Close to uni, not town
