General 

York St John University began as two Victorian Anglican teacher training colleges. Over the last 170 years, it has gone through various incarnations and gained full university status in 2006. It now offers over 40 degree programmes, though you can, of course, still train to teach here. There are approximately 6,000 students with around 20% of them being over 21, and there is a male to female ratio of 30:70. The campus is a beautiful, eleven-acre leafy oasis in the city centre, a stone’s throw from the world-famous York Minster (a stunning medieval cathedral where the graduation ceremonies take place), across the city walls.

York St John University is able to offer the best of both worlds: it is big enough to be well resourced and to offer excellent teaching and learning opportunities, yet is small enough to be a welcoming, friendly community.  Recent campus investment of over £75m allows York St John University to provide an outstanding student experience.  It is forward-thinking and offers relevant and stimulating courses, run by expert and passionate academic staff.  With 91% of its students going on to employment or full-time study six months after graduating, it also has an excellent reputation for equipping students with the skills and knowledge for life-long success.

Student Services 

The university offers excellent support services to ensure its students are happy, including careers, employment and CV guidance, counselling, learning and study support, disability advice, health support, and finance and welfare guidance.  External Quality Assessors regularly rate this aspect of the university’s provision as outstanding.  

Transport

The university is just a few minutes' walk from the city centre, which is easily navigable on foot or bike. The train station is approximately 15 minutes' walk and is on the main east coast rail line - handy for London and Edinburgh, both approximately two hours away. Leeds and Manchester are also easy to get to.
