Most helpful review

The school environment and ecology are very good, with many cute small animals, and the students at school are also very enthusiastic

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’.

CS grad here, do not like my experience, especially after Covid-19. Some of the staff are great, but most of them do not know what they are doing. e.g. Professors suggests doing something for your assessment, and you got penalized for doing that after marking. Gradings are harsh and without any sense (some people write almost the same answer for a question while one get maximum point and the other gets 0, with no academic judgment appeal lol). They scaled four assessments in the final year, so this is not the place if you care about fair marking/classification. Career service reviews your CV, cover letter and holds mock interviews, nothing else. I must note that the CS department invests a lot of money in the facilities, and considering the university itself is pretty young compared to others, they are yet improving. But if you have an offer from the same ranked university, take it as they need more time for improving. I believe their actual rank should be around 35.

Although coronavirus has so far decimated the majority of my time at university so far (I am a soon to be third year who missed out on summer term of first year and the majority of second year due to the pandemic), my time on campus has been fab. First year was great living in halls (even if it was short lived) as I got a good feel for campus life. In relation to my course Film & TV Production, the support I have had from my lecturers during difficult times either personally or struggles with course content has been brilliant and I am aware that the university has been doing all it can to keep students safe and supported in this difficult time.

Beautiful campus is very well kept. The library and other study spaces are very spacious and useful for both work alone and group presentation work. Many clubs and societies on offer. Not knowledgeable enough to judge the student union but have heard others complain about them. Never used careers service. Wifi system (eduroam) largely good but did have connectivity issues in first year. Overall would recommend.

University has been providing bags for each flat to support them during the pandemic. however, whenever anything goes wrong, getting in touch with course administrators, university administrators and accommodation services has been absolutely awful (e.g. never pick up the phone and never replies to voicemails) and has lead to exacerbation of existing mental health problems among students.

A beautiful university with a great campus. The best part about York is the college system because you can represent your college if you're not good enough to be in the top university sports or music clubs. Very friendly place and also quite safe in comparison to other universities. Negatives about York is that public transport is poor, clubs keep closing down in town and the student union is border-line useless. They don't listen to students and are rude when complaints are made. Some student reps end up siding with teachers and not representing students causing even more problems. The disability centre is also very poor and it doesn't do nearly enough to help students with health problems. If you want a safe, homely and pretty uni where you'll meet some cool people this is definitely the place, but if you are the type of student that needs a lot of support throughout your studies, look somewhere else.

York University career center is not career-focused. They do not offer any real assistance regarding how to actually land a job. They just provide theories for job searching. You have to speak with 4 different counselors because each counselor has a designated specialty. This means you have to visit the career centre 4 times to get any real assistance with your job search. You are also only given 15 minutes per session, so there is not enough time to really provide you with the help you really need. For future students, my advice is not to do a liberal arts degree, you get nowhere with that. The jobs available to people with liberal arts degrees are cal centre and cleaning jobs. Get a decent degree or no degree at all.

Uni itself is great with good facilities campus-wide. Have been involved with a few societies and i've had loads of fun. The one thing this uni seems to be lacking though is a good student union building and indoor open spaces around the union and campus for activities and get togethers.

There are lots of beautiful areas around campus. Is not parent/commuting friendly! Frequent timetable changes, making it difficult to arrange regular childcare. I understand timetabling is difficult, however other universities manage to accommodate commuting or parent students better. Commuting 5 days a week for 1 or 2 hours a day is ridiculous!

University of York is a collegiate university where there are 9 colleges around campus and your class is literally a minute away from your room. The social life here is good, I feel welcomed, everyone is friendly, the accommodation is the bomb, there is 24 hours reception at Ron Cooke Hub & also Hes West. Overall, it is the best uni & you can make friends with the cute ducks and geese!!!!

Sports clubs and teams are decent but could do with a bit more funding for pitches for rugby and football. Campus is claustrophobic, the buildings are usually reminiscent of horrendous communist prison-like architecture and the ones that aren't are situated on Hes East - the barren wasteland of Uni of York. Town is nice, but other than club nights, it's mostly left untouched by students as its about 15 mins away by bus.

York is wonderful University that has gone under the radar for too long! The collegiate system and the more moderate size of the University means that there is an excellent community atmosphere. It also means that there is the opportunities to manage small scale business and events at a very early stage a progress into larger things - gaining invaluable experience that you simply cannot do in other universities. Go to York.

It was okay, the social life is a total disaster on Heslington East and the student union is a huge waste of time. The on campus bars are awful too. The university expresses blatant sexism additionally by banning international men's day this year but celebrating a week for international womans day. Disappointment of a university really.

Some areas of campus with outdated buildings which are gradually being replaced, on the whole great facilities, teaching staff and accommodation - look out for the ducks though!

Nothing to complain about but the Union does not represent student views, motivated by self interest and sideline non-minority issues.

I love the University of York, in such a short space of time you realise how friendly everyone is and prepared to help you out. There is a society for everyone and there are so many opportunities to try new things and boost your career prospects if you choose to engage in them. The library is huge and there is plenty of space to work quietly or find places to work with friends and always a computer available.

Such an excellent and friendly university, I felt instantly welcomed and included. I love the college system, as it helped me meet so many people who I otherwise may not have met. I can only speak great things about this university, and I'm sure it will help me shape a thriving future for myself.

The University of York is SO much bigger than I expected it to be! (However it isn't too big that I get lost all the time). All the staff and students are friendly and the WiFi even reaches into the city!I'd recommend anyone to come here as long as their course taught here.

We have an amazing student union who holds tonnes of various events and activities and the university has a lot of intriguing societies and clubs ranging from geek society, Taylor Swift society to caving club and skydiving club. Not forgetting the awesome facilities we have especially the library!

We've got a pretty cool library in my opinion anyway and although we don't have a nightclub on campus no-one really seems to mind since it isn't far in to town. The student union events however are awful in comparison, I went to one once there was probably 20 people there tops. If you want a thriving SU bar and nightclub York is not the place for you. There's a lot of different societies and sports teams so there'll be something for you whoever you are and every year they host at least 3 careers fairs.

All round fantastic. The West campus is great (albeit in need of an update). Huge suggestion though - please can someone address the issue of the library - during exam time/revision period there is literally no hope of ever getting a seat in the library - people have resorted to getting up at about 5.30/6am just to get into the library before 7am, which is when it is almost full. This is a huge problem because I struggle to work in my room as I like to separate work from home, and I know there are 'alternative' places but those places lack plug sockets, silence and things like water pumps etc. Other than the library issue, it is fantastic.

You don't have to be a fan of brutalist architecture to come to York. Heslington East is beautiful and the city is one of the best in Europe. However, you have to be a fan of geese!

As a law student the Law School is on the cutting edge of creativity and modern legal research. As a student the University is academically highly regarded, and more importantly never loses sight of its young, plucky upbringing; yes you can be the best academically, but it means nought if you have no fun along the way.
