The city of York is beautiful. However, the University lives off the city's reputation. The university is an eye sore on the urban landscape. Its hideous grey 1960s buildings make the winters seem eerie and lonely. There is a very small range of societies of which a select sample of the university's population dominate. Despite attempts to join, I often felt like I was intruding on a well established friendship group. There is an overwhelming lack of inclusivity to introverted students. The restaurants on campus are dirty and the facilities in the buildings I used were dated and gross. Any social workshop they offered that was half decent was often oversubscribed.

Good campus in a nice, safe area. There's beautiful nature all over and lots of ducks, geese, and rabbits everywhere. Bus links are good and it's easy to travel to the city centre. Not too many students for the facilities. Many great coffee shops and canteens.

University of York Online MBA - Terrible experience, despite this not being a new course - its plagued with technical issues (wrong links supplied), material not correctly shown. The course is deeply impacted by marking boycotts - no plans to mark work. Professors and TAs provide limited to no feedback. Sometimes no more than 5 words on a lengthy 2,500 assignment. It is clearly understaffed and provides poor value for money. DONT DO YOUR MBA HERE

In fact, studying in York University was not as happy as I had imagined. Most of the study time is self-taught. Most of the tutor's instructions are given to students in accordance with the HANDBOOK, and there is no real help.

The university itself is fine, academically you will be given plenty of support if you reach out for it. Resources are mostly available and the library is good. Architecture on campus is not the nicest and it does sometimes feel like I’m walking around a brutalist secondary school. The ducks are a nice touch though.

Both campuses are utterly beautiful to study at. Campus East provides beautiful walks and green scenery which is perfect for keeping a calm and settled mindspace during such an intensive study day. Campus west provides multiple lakes for walks and the wildlife is incredibly friendly, there’s nothing I love more than feeding the ducks on a quiet day between lectures. The lecturers and seminar tutors are always supportive and incredibly skilled in their fields which allows me to confidently reach my potential academically.

It’s a great university, in a beautiful location. The campus is large and has great facilities for students to use, whether it’s to study or to play a sport or any other activities.

Good uni, and nice campus, although slightly run-down in places. Would benefit from improving the student union building by developing the existing facility instead of building from scratch in an impractical part of campus.

All my classes are held at King’s manor in the town centre which is ideal for me. I haven’t been on campus much so my experience is limited but the staff in the archeology department is amazing and I love studying in this beautiful building that is so central.

Although the University of York was founded only in 1963, it has come a long way since then. I highly recommend the University of York Law School, which was established in 2007, for its unique problem-based learning curriculum!

Good university in the russell group so it has a good reputation. Not much support outside of classes. SU does minimal work and there is not much going on on campus besides a few bars and a nisa shop

So far being at the university of York, I have felt extremely welcomed by the staff members, in particular by the college well-being staff. We had a welcoming talk showing us who to go to if our mental health, for example, takes a turn. There is also a security app which the university use which is designed to help students if they are ever in a situation which they need more help or aid. My accommodation room feels more like a home than a student accommodation. We have had many lectures which focus on career opportunities as well as career fairs to help encourage students to start looking at different career paths that they may be interested in that they hadn't been aware of before. The university of York has a wide range of societies and sports club. I have participated in the canoe society which has been affordable for me and has allowed me to be able to meet more students in different years and doing different courses to myself.

Very bad university do not care about your health at all physical or mental! Supervisors are also very unsympathetic. Course content is also taught very poorly and lecturers only help their favourites!!

First year CS mature student here. Recently changing careers I can categorically leave a good advise to any potential student. Please do not waste your time going to the university of York. It is an absolutely disgrace! Stay away, if you’re a parent like myself do not send you kids over. I’ve seen the young adults in completely distress trying to learn CS on their own. Work placement can be unfair according to some 3 year students holding first class degree. There are no TA’s available, lacks teaching, often notes contain errors, a few modules referred you to YouTube third party content(RIDICULOUS). The mark system would bring any descent person to their knees from shame, questions correctly answered are completely mark down without any justification. You pass relatively comfortably the programming exams and the grade you get is below the pass rate. Then a endless cat and mouse chasing game between student and lead course leaves you without answers. They can’t care less basically.

Very nice university with new facilities and up-to-date wireless environment. The academic experience is also great. I personally love the libraries, both kings manor and the main one on campus.

The campus is quite nice (although all the blocks on campus west are old and filled with silverfish), some departments are lovely, but the student union is just in the pocket of the uni - they don’t do anything for students! The only good things that YUSU do are societies and the campus bars. They partnered with a company that scammed students for all their official club nights in the city, and claimed they listened to student concerns when making the decision (they didn’t!). The VC and other uni administrators don’t care about students at all, just profit. TL;DR lovely city, functional campus, great teaching staff, great societies, but terrible representation for students at every level.

What can I say, a good place… love the city and living there so much! The campus is really pretty in terms of the lake and greenery, and the ducks have become firm friends of mine. Ngl most of the buildings are ugly af but we move. Issues with the student union at the moment not actually listening to students and partnering with a problematic events network for ‘official club nights’.
