I love studying at this university. It may be small and quite compact however it feels very friendly and homely allowing me to easily and comfortably fit in. There are multiple opportunities for different societies meeting the interests of mainly everyone, with student friendly nights of pound a pint. The people who work sighing the uni are very caring always offering support or leading you the the right person to talk to. I love spending this journey in York St John and have many happy and fond memories here.

Its a great university in a great city! But I'd arguably limited by its size and the cost of living. I believe the university does all it can in terms of providing a great student experience, however, does fall short in some instances. I don't believe the SU is able to cater for all students in regards to the activities it can offer, in addition to this, there does appear to be some inconsistencies when attempting to contact different members of staff, however this could arguably just be my experience and reflect my course only.

Brilliant University with great facilities and support systems in place. Thoroughly enjoyed my 3 years studying and was lucky enough to experience it surrounded by a lovely campus in the heart of York.

Everyone is nice and welcoming and there are so many opportunities for students. My course is engaging and keeps us entertained while we're learning.

The campus is absolutely beautiful and is so close to the city centre, which makes it very convenient. The team at YSJ are brilliant and really helpful, and all staff are the same. It really is a lovely, friendly university.

So far I am enjoying my time at York St John University. I like the Uni space itself, not too big to get lost. My course is interesting and I'm enjoying the challenge. If I had one bad thing to say it would be that I don't enjoy doing the essays, but they need to be done I suppose.

Great social experience, good university club nights and a good location for nights out. However, the only scene is top 40 so if you're more into indie or anything else, Sheffield is probably more up your street. The university has good facilities for such a small campus but in terms of course leadership and teaching, it can be very disorganised and vague. It's a good choice if you feel you won't be able to get into a more academic university, but if you're looking for a serious education and to get your money's worth, avoid it.

I love studying at YSJ! The tutors are always on hand to help with any questions and the lectures and seminars are always very informative and fun! The health and well-being team at the Uni are amazing and get back to you the same day which is so helpful. There's always a smiling friendly face to help you out when needed and it's such a small community atmosphere it feels just like home!

It is a small campus without much to do. The facilities aren't great, with limited opening hours. The SU bar is great, however, with events held.

Small university which is beneficial for many reasons, more one to one teaching and a lot of support for both learning as well as personal issues. Family like atmosphere, where anyone would help if you needed it. Good library and learning facilities, easily accessible career facility. And excellent mental health support. Good studio spaces for fine art course, approachable lecturers who are keen to help and have your best interests at heart.

Small university but so much better. Campus is all together so easy to get around and find lecture halls. Course is intense and very big so it is hard to make friends. Student union have loads to offer especially with sports. Never used career services as of yet but heard they are good. I'm glad I came to ysj as lecturers are always there to help not having to wait ages for help at well-being would recommend more computers in the library as there isn't another for the amount of students

Good supportive uni. A real sense of unity and teamwork through the university. Great mental health support and constant support when needed. Beautiful campus and good accommodation.

The campus is convenient and easily accessible with all buildings only a very short walk from each other. Careers services are extremely helpful with potential prospects being emailed to us weekly. Only issue is some of the lecture and seminar rooms are small for the class.

The university, all in one campus is unique, academic and has a wide spread of new and old buildings. It is well maintained, good facilities and has everything a university needs from a state of the art library to student services.

Campus is always clean and easy to navigate, lecturers are friendly and always eager to help. Lots of options in canteen for various dietary requirements.

I am studying criminology with police studies. The lecturers are all really helpful but some of the seminar tutors could be better. I love the content of the course and it is as I expected. The uni is fab with lots of facilities

The lectures on my course are helpful and easy to talk to. They make it clear and simple what are assignments are and we can approach them if needed. The university campus is easy to navigate with a variety of facilities including multiple food outlets at reasonable prices and a great students union which is perfect for socialising inbetween studies. The university also has a wonderful wellness team, where students can not only seek medical advice but also seek out advice in terms of mental health issues which I think is something that every student needs access to.

York St. John univeristy is not a very big university but that's the best thing because we students do not have to walk a lot from one place to another and that is much easier. The facilities provided for everything are second to none. I am I. The basketball team and that is one of my best things that I am doing as a student.

Good facilities and nice small close knit campus. Better range of modules on course would be beneficial as some modules are covering the same topics. Overall course is good, more contact hours could be beneficial. Karaoke Saturdays and pound a pint at the student union on a Saturday is worth going to.

I have had the best time at YSJ! All the friends I've made and memories shared, I wouldn't change a thing!

YSJ is a fab uni. We have a great looking campus, a three storey library, and amazing lecturers. The student union has something going on every night e.g movie nights, pound a pint, doubles for singles, quiz nights, karaoke and more!

My course is Primary Education upper BA hons. The course itself is very good, I’ve felt as though I’ve been supported as much as I can be and have enjoyed the modules as they clearly relate to a specific job so there’s no feel of “what’s the point”. The students union has recently been refurbished and is lovely! It’s a shame it’s a small university as there aren’t any live bands or gigs there. The library is 24/7 and there’s so much technical and academic help there. The gym is tiny and there’s no pool unfortunately. I’ve been very pleased with my experience however the nightlife isn’t the best.

The campus is so small which allows it to have a really good feel to it and you feel like a student rather than a number. The lecturers are always on board to help. The university also deals with mental health really well.
