    Great experience, careers could be better

    I had a great time at York, meeting plenty of new people and getting involved with various academic and non-academic activities. York is a great city, with plenty to do for young people; even if it’s too small then you have Leeds on your doorstep, Newcastle for nightlight and Manchester and London 70 and 110 minutes away by train respectively. My only criticism would be the lack of tailored guidance from the careers department. Being in the field of economics, it is important to apply for roles early; even starting applications for insight programmes in your first year. I was very lucky that I got involved with student-led activities, to help me with this. I would rate the student-led support as amongst the best nationally, but this is as a result of the gaps in the university careers department itself.

    A (somewhat) comprehesive review of the University of York

    I am a Bulgarian student currently in the second year at the University of York. I came to York through clearing after I changed my mind last second and decided against going to the University of Sheffield. As of today, despite some drawbacks, I wouldn´t say I regret this decision.

    First of all, let`s talk about the campus. It´s great! It is a campus-based uni, which means it is not located right in the centre of York, which is sometimes a bit annoying, but that gives it its own unique student vibe. The facilities are great, there are two massive lakes, many geese and ducks and despite some buildings looking like they were taken from a socialist dystopia on the outside, everything just comes together very nicely and the campus is unprecedentedly beautiful. It really has a very unique atmosphere and I would say it makes you more inclined to study. The accommodation is also quite good, apart from its high cost, which is typical of York though. The fact that there are different colleges which have their own life makes it very interesting, as there are different events and competitions happening around campus at all times.

    When it comes to the people I´ve met here, they have all been quite nice and everyone has been very welcoming, which is something very important when you come from a different culture. The nightlife of York, given that it is not such a big city, is quite alright, but even if you don´t like going out and drinking there are plenty of other stuff that´s going on, like the sports competitions between colleges that I mentioned earlier, which I enjoy both watching and taking part in. There are also societies and other stuff as well, of course.

    And last but not least, the quality of education. I would say some of my lecturers could have been better and the fact that there are almost no assignments throughout the year and everything depends on your end-of-year exams is a bit annoying, but still, I would say if you do pay attention in lectures and actually try and study throughout the term and not just before the exams, you will be fine. The material that we learn is a bit hard, but it is interesting and important for the most part.

    To conclude, York is a nice and prestigious university and there is a reason why. If anyone is thinking about coming here, I do recommend it.

  • Computer Science ...
    with Data Science
    Active forum and great students community.

    Pros:-
    Well-reputed University (Russel-group University)
    The curriculum is great.
    Active discussion forums
    A chance to get in touch with people from all over the world pursuing the same thing
    Module tutors are very responsive and helpful.
    They acknowledged my concerns and assured that the module will be improved for the upcoming students.

    Cons:-
    Topics are not explained in detail, instead, book references are provided to know more. I believe is also not too bad, as this is a Masters level course.

    Generally good uni

    I really enjoy my course, and all of my lectures and seminar tutors are really helpful and knowledgeable. The campus is really nice, and I love all the wildlife on campus. The uni needs to put more funding towards mental health as that is something which is lacking. The uni is also keen to promote sustainability, yet continues to invest in fossil fuels so in my view divestment is key to York maintaining its view as a sustainable university. Accommodation is also quite expensive – even the cheap options aren’t particularly cheap.

    Uni of York

    York is fab, campus vibe is super chill. Not a huge city but extremely safe and friendly. Nightlife could be better but the people make it great. Loads of bars and pubs – if you come make the most of them. Finding my course interesting.

    Fantastic city and University

    This is a fantastic university. It has a fantastic reputation and lives up to this reputation. The city itself is overwhelmingly incredible. With the minister and city walls among many other things it is absolutely beautiful. It is close to Leeds and Newcastle, despite being a smaller city it is surrounded by many other amazing cities with great connections to both the north and the south. The university itself is wonderful. The collegiate system is a wonderful way to meet people. There is an incredible sense of rivalry as well as a very warm and homely feeling. It is not only where you love but the sports you play, the friends you make and the family you have. I study Politics which ranks one of the highest across the country. I cannot criticise this subject at all. It is very interesting where in first year I studied compulsory modules which ranged from economic, to American politics and political philosophy. It was a fantastic basis which I chose my second year subject upon. The choices were diverse and intensely interesting. After just finishing my second year I can not recommend Politics at York enough. It is above and beyond what I expected it to be. The lecturers are all so caring and always have time for feedback or questions. York is a fantastic city and university which has been fantastic for me and I’m sure will be fantastic for anyone who is lucky enough to find themselves there.

    I loved York

    I loved the University of York, the city and my course (physics). The University helped support myself and others through any issues and made sure to help all new students feel included. The impression York left on me has left me wanting to return to the city soon.

  • I like it here but...

    My experience at York has overall been positive. However, my flatmates steal my milk and neglect to mop the floor. Despite this, they are a sociable bunch and like to watch TV with me, which I like. In regards to the quality of education, I find it good. I study Sociology, and the workload is acceptable. However, sometimes I don’t feel pushed by my tutors to reach my full potential, which can be disappointing. The nightlife is expensive, and shopping would be too if it weren’t for the convenient Aldi that serves all my needs. But York is a pretty city, with lots to do in the day. I would half-heartedly recommend York because Newcastle is better.

  • A great course at a great uni

    When I first arrived in York, I was scared of the horror-stories about asbestos-ridden accommodation. However, I can safely say that only some of the buildings are like this! Mine is spacious and beautiful. There are a lot of contact hours on my Biology course, and I am provided with excellent feedback and the lab facilities are top notch. In addition to this, there are a large number of sports facilities that I make frequent use of, including an Olympic Swimming Pool, running track, cycling track, athletics track, football pitches, etc etc.
    The city of York is small yet charming and is the location where Diagon Alley from Harry Potter was filmed (to give you an idea of its quintessential charm). I know for a fact that I am having a better time at uni than my friends who study elsewhere. Go to York.
