I really think they need to improve the societies and the students union. But I’m general campus is amazing, really good cafeteria and loads of coffee places everywhere which helped me through this year.
I'm now in my third year of PhD and I feel lucky and grateful to do a PhD here after the team of my supervisors. They are so patient with me that allow me to make y mistakes and find my way. That allows me to really love and start enjoying learning itself. That I think matters far more than the degree. And all the teachers here are so supportive. I love the atmosphere of study here!
Lovely university, the staff and facilities are so good and couldn’t ask for anything else.
it's a good university, especially for initial teacher training
Amazing sports facilities only issue is that it is abit of a walk to get there but other than that no complaints
I applied through clearing and ended up dropping out and transferring to another uni after 2 weeks. I was the loneliest I have ever been at this university and I felt so out of place. The university does hardly anything for its students and from what I experienced, teaching is below average. If you are from a big city I wouldn’t recommend moving to a town like York either as there is a big culture shock. Now I go to Essex uni and I am so much happier!
Friendly campus feel, lecturers are good and most lessons engaging!
Overall a decent experience in some modules. Bad management of course content and assignments.
York St John University has been good.
It a great place to live, great location
Great facilities, very supportive throughout lockdown
Good, cheap SU. Sports clubs and society’s ran well
Have been there like twice this year thanks to online education
Hard to review as haven’t been there a lot due to Covid-19. However, when I’ve been there the facilities are great and the staff are friendly and helpful.
Good uni it’s a shame I didn’t have the best experience because of COVID
Great university. Supportive staff!
A small tight knit community very involved and on top of students studies. Making sure all students graduate with as much knowledge and experience as possible is what the staff do best.
I think it is the best university I could have gone to for my course and for the friends I have made in such a short space of time.
Moved in in September, although feeling apprehensive at first the staff made me feel extremely welcome and comfortable. The kitchen facilities are clean and up to date. There is bike storage and a gym which come in very handy. I enjoy living here and have booked for next year.
Really good university, very happy
Appalling university, I had little to no communication all through COVID and even before hand which led me to drop out and upon dropping out I contacted them several times for updates which were ignored everytime and even though I said In my reasons why that the communication was bad nothing changed and upon my departure they were just as bad
Nice campus. York St John is definitely a community. Careers service is amazing
Good uni given that it was both a poly and nursing college
They're trying to improve the facilities for art and design courses. Would recommend for any creative courses. Su bar is super cheap, cafeteria is a little pricey but I've never had something I don't like from there, they do breakfast lunch and tea. Starbucks and Costa are reduced prices. Library is good after you learn the system
This is one of the most stupid university in london and they never listen to student once they will get fees they don't care for student
Lovely close-knit university with an incredible library and a welcoming atmosphere.
I really like being at the Uni so far. However Ive only been here for a month now so I cant really give an opinion yet.
I have put 3 stars to those that do not apply to me as I dont know how well the function as of yet. So far this university is amazing! So beautiful and in a stunning area. I have enjoyed being here so far!
the wifi is absolutely spectacular
I can't really think of any facilities the campus is missing. The Students Union are very involved with YSJ students and they are constantly holding events and helping others. The wifi only works in Holgate and Fountains - it really sucks in the other buildings, which is annoying when most of my lectures are in Temple Wing and some require the use of internet.
The students union is okay but very small and consists of a bar and cafe. Compared to other uni’s SUs it’s very basic but it’s okay during freshers. The WiFi is okay but not amazing. There are some food places on campus.
Everything about the university is great with the exception that some of its societies are exceptionally toxic.
York St. John is better than uni of York as our campus is unique
Absolutely abysmal. Dropped out before finishing my third year. Wish I could've finished but the place destroyed me as a person. The societies are mostly cliquey and unwelcoming. Same goes for the courses. Not improved when such cliques tend to garner more lecturer interactions. Which can be intimidating and offputting for those students who are less outgoing. The accomodation team was appauling in my first year. To a degree where I had to put in a full scale complaint at the end of the year. They're in no hurry to deal with issues such as unaccomodating flatmates, or those who leave the place an uninhabitable hazard site. They're happy to leave you to pay the fines and send their copy/paste warnings. The Wellbeing Team is friendly enough, however it is understanable, under the circumstances of having every other student palmed off on them, that care can be lacking and isn't as personalized.
The students union is nice and welcoming, sport societies are very cliquey with the committees but if you have your own little group and enjoy what you're doing you should have a fun time.
A beautiful university with some truly amazing courses.
An amazing university, so welcoming, with amazing staff and in a fantastic location! Would recommend to anyone!
Great place to study and helpful lecturers as well! Really enjoyed my time studying in YSJ
Brilliant university, small but plenty of 1:1 attention from tutors if needed. Some fantastic and unique societies such as Historical Reenactment and Harry Potter. The campus looks beautiful whatever time of year.
The campus is a good size, not too big and not to small making it easy to find your way around. All the facilities are up to a very high standard and are kept clean and tidy. There could be a wider range of societies however there are a lot of clubs that you can join in with. The student union has recently been re built and is a great building to just go and hang out with your friends, it hosts events all the time which is really good. The only issue is the Wifi can be very unreliable around campus
There's a brand new student union which is great. Wifi on campus is usually good but you can't get a good signal all the time. All the facilities are great and there's loads of sports and clubs to join. Most membership fees are good value too. The carees team are really helpful too.
I love YSJ! I am so happy I chose to attend here! The university is great and modern in some areas but also have the historic areas such as the quad. The lecture theatres ate great and spacious, my favourite personally is the one in the fountains building. The library in YSJ is perfect for when you trying to cram in all that last minute work, as it's open 24 hours a day. The library is made up of three floors, each floor filled with academic readings and computers for you to do your work. The student Union has just been rebuilt offering you a comfortable place to sit with your friends or even do some work. The Union had a student bar and also a Starbucks, which has discounted prices because yanno we're students. But if you're never in the mood for Starbucks, we also have a Costa in the fountains building. The Costa is super handy if you have a 9am on Monday morning, trust me it's helped me so much this semester.
More ebooks needed in the library!
This university is an amazing place to learn and is very welcoming and friendly
A bit bland in comparison to other unis
Gorgeous campus, right in the city centre, amazing atmosphere.
Wifi works sometimes, library doesn't have many computers
Wifi can go on and off a fair few times a day. The SU need to promote there offers more that they have on certain days
York St. John is such a lovely small university you will always see someone you know as the campus is so small. It has a big family feel and I fell in love with it when I first went.
SU is good, with plenty of facilities and events taking place throughout the week. The uni also offers many different areas for working, so you are not just limited to the library.
The University has a lovely atmosphere, everyone is so friendly and willing to help with anything you may need. Great library with an incredible range of books for your courses.
I really like the university. The clubs and societies are great
Great uni I'd definitely recommend it to anyone, very friendly staff and a beautiful area
Lots of societies to join and a wide range of facilities. Full of generous, nice people.
Facilities are great as its a smaller university in comparison to others so plenty of equipment to use without needing to book it
Campus is all relativity new and some areas are currently being updated, designed well for student life. It is compact and easy to find your way around. The SU is a little small, but there are plans for summer 2016 to revamp this. Careers services are available during your degree and after you leave the uni. Wifi is accessible all over campus with student login, fairly reliable.
gorgeous campus has dining hall modern lecture theatres copious amounts of seminar rooms well stocked library computer rooms students union bar cafes shops onsite living
A lovely campus, right near town with everything you would need.
The campus is always clean and tidy, during busy periods computers are hard to get hold of and the student union is small, looking forward to the renovation.
Good location and amazing facilities
Campus has nice facilities (gym very small, but big library) good amount of societies, and SU run down
Not bad not fantastic. Shouldn't be paying £9000 for it
Great uni. Ideal location as it's right in the middle of York and close to town. The campus is gorgeous and it's easy to find your way around. Everything's pretty good at YSJ!
My only problem is that the Students Union is quite small and fills up very quickly when there are events on
Amazing university where the lecturers actually care about you and take the time to learn your name! Small class sizes not 200+ students in a lecture which I like!
It has amazing facilities such as the information learning services. I don't use the student's union, because I find it quite busy and I don't feel comfortable there.
I love uni so much, the people are lovely and I've met friends for life
I enjoy going to university and all the lecturers and staff around site are helpful, friendly and very approachable
Large campus, close to the city centre. Excellent facilities and staff
Very basic university that is not worth the incredible amount of debt I now find myself in...
I love St John's small but beautiful campus, although we are expected to pay for a lot of things which other universities help cover the costs of. I love YSJ overall though and everyone is very approachable and friendly.
The uni itself is beautiful, the staff are wonderful and quick to help. Now the most important part - the student union is amazing, it's own bar and activities each night and very helpful to the societies
Only been here for 5 weeks. So welcoming and a lovely atmosphere to learn in
The underdog of Uni's , close community , great staff and friendly people. Feel like I could go far in the future.
Everyone is friendly, settle in quickly, caring and exciting environment
YSJ although it isn't a big university that's what makes it great, with being a small uni it means you get smaller more focused lectures discussions practicals etc and you're more likely to see your tutors than at some of the bigger unis. Its in the centre of York where there are 365 bars/pubs to have a pint or two in, there are also numerous attractions, shops, parks and hidden secrets to enjoy. The atmosphere is always friendly and its rare to feel homesick but if you do there is always someone there to talk to and if you do want to go home the train station is only a 15 minute walk if you dawdle and 10 if you don't from the uni!
A brilliant Uni with staff that fully support all of students needs
They have been very supportive and always give me fantastic opportunities to develop my learning and understanding.
Great facilities and teaching standard is high (for English Literature at least). Good range of accommodation all within walking distance of the university
Very nice and compact, not many sports on offer though
Compact university with friendly people and a mixture of new and old buildings. It's easy to find your way around campus.
Lovely location and nice campus
The university is the best. So many things to do, from quiz nights to karaoke, to movie and ice cream nights. The SU are the best, and organise so many events to keep the students happy.
It allows for more opportunities to come out of your shell
The university is so multicultural and the city brings history alive
YSJ is puah sound no wa a mean mush.
Love the university lots. I think it could be improved by making the gym better!
Absolutely amazing uni!! So happy I decided to go with YSJ, couldn't have made a better decision.
One of the best university! Right in the heart of the city to make sure that the social life is just as good as the university courses on off!
Fantastic, family like University. Small enough so everyone recognises everyone. Full of great people and opportunities.
Very good university! Glad i chose this uni, it has top notch science facilities! Don't want to leave
Great location, awesome and modern campus, wifi is excellent and great career opportunities
Great uni, everything is close by, loads to do
Such a great place to study. It's right in the centre of York and the whole campus is quite compact which gives the uni a real community feel. Great facilities include the library and the excellent on campus doctor as well as the student advice team and health and well being team who are so helpful. There's student nights almost every night and countless societies to join.
It is a great feeling uni with a great intimate atmosphere and is a great uni.
A really great campus, the wifi is excellent, lots of opportunities to take part in but the SU building could be better, very small and minimalistic
Top facilities for students and faculty to use, tutors and other staff all very supportive and help students make to most of their time
It is a very pretty campus, almost in the centre of the beautiful city of York. I would recommend this university as it is genuinely a great place for academic development and it's just a shame that its small size results in it being low down in the league tables etc.
Regular events on at the student union, only downside is that its a bit small. Wifi's decent, can go down often though and career/job fairs are handy.
not the best university ever when you hear stories about others but it is so small here that there is a community. It begins to feel like everyone knows everyone.
a good music department but everything just seemed a scaled down to a normal university
Internet very slow more then likely because a lot of users
Thoroughly enjoyed my experience studying at YSJ. The campus and facilities are very modern and state of the art, due largely in part to an intensive building program that has been taking place at the University since 2002. The lower rating for the Student Union is due to the poor building that it is housed in- however the staff of the student union do a fantastic job and they are always on hand to help when you may need it. The internet coverage is campus- wide and free to access through a Uni account. The internet is relatively fast for a public network, and using it is straightforward. The career opportunities from YSJ are reasonably good, and the Uni enjoys a good reputation considering it was only granted University status in 2006. Overall I had a good experience at YSJ (although I found my second uni experience at Huddersfield University superior). I would probably recommend YSJ, although the drop out rate for my course was and is relatively high compared to average. CR
York St John is a cute uni, more like a community. Everyone knows everyone and it's a really pretty place. The teachers on the Media course are the absolute best and absolute sweeties also.
its okay although printing should be free since we pay £9000 a year. And they need more computers. There's about 12.
Brilliant uni! The tutors are great. Its a small campus so easy to get used to. Good facilities and overall a great place to learn
A great uni, modern and accessible in a great location
University seems to care about money quite a lot
its a good university of your not asking for much, does its job and may not have the best facilities but it's definitely getting there
Not the best university... But probably not the worst?
An amazing, welcoming and friendly university! The only problem I have is the lack of lectures/seminars and too much independent work which makes me doubt the price per year.
su is too small and the gym is rubbish
Very healthy student spirit as it's a small university
Good facilities, and wifi around campus. Most the societies are sports based which doesnt appeal to me personally but many of my friends enjoy them. Not really involved in the SU but have a nice shop for general bits and a cheap bar.
