York St John is a small, friendly university. The staff and students are welcoming and there’s always something going on at the SU. The campus and university accommodation are above average and placed very close to the city of York. The city itself is quite small but there’s always things going on. Not the biggest, loudest nightlife but the events and clubs that we do have are always busy and fun. I’ve had a great three years here and would reccomend to anyone who wants the university life without moving to a massive city.

The campus is beautiful, I looks like hogwarts! The new buildings are amazing too and it’s right in the city centre so you’re never too far away from anything! The facilities are excellent, catering for all types of disabilities etc. State of the art library and online systems which makes studying much easier. The SU is pretty new and rebuilt and it’s superb. With so many different nights on for the students and are always open to lend a helping hand and send fortnightly emails to keep all the students updated on what’s happened around campus and the next big event. For careers services, I haven’t had much experience myself, but I am a student representative for my course so I know that this is something that comes under them, along with putting on study sessions, academic writing sessions and so on. They have drop in and appointment based sessions and are always welcoming right at the heart of campus. My experience so far has been amazing! I’ve never felt out of place.

York St. John university is a brilliant uni in the best location right in the centre of york! A crazy busy small city with everything you need for an amazing 3 years of uni! The uni is very small and compact, which means you make more friends and have even more fun! Archie’s day is a highlight at the end of each term, with good facilities for a range of courses. The nightlife in york is as good as expected and you never have a dull night. The best three years of my life without a doubt!

Small uni, but big enough to meet loads of different people. Subject choice is good. Student union has events on everyday of the week which is a nice break from the library

York St John University is a great place to come to make friends, however course support is a rarity, you are essentially left to fend for yourself, the ILS and library services are good, plenty of resources and in hot weather the service desk offer usb fans for loan so you are in a more comfortable environment.

The university has a lovely campus and is all on the same site, meaning it takes less than 10 minutes to get from one side to the other. Beautiful old historic buildings with a harry potter feel to them. We graduate in York minster. Oh we also have blankets and bean bags in our library's

Very nice campus, with old architecture integrated in to the new. nice size campus and not as intimidating as some campuses. The quality of teaching is hit and miss within every subject. business isnt too bad

Gorgeous city, gorgeous campus, gorgeous life. After moving from the south of England to the north I have learnt the ways of the northerner. YSJ is a gorgeous university to study in and haven’t been disappointed yet.

A great university with small teaching groups, amazingly supportive staff and a wealth of resources and funding to do what you need to do to be successfull. Everyone cares about each other and I believe YSJ is truly special.

I’ve studies criminology for a year now and I must say that all the lecturers are really good and content is interesting.

17 April 2018

A great university for anyone who does not want to go to a university that has thousands of students and a big campus. YSJ boasts a compact, modern campus that has a range of facilities incorporated with beautiful architecture. Independent learning is widely encouraged and a friendly face is at every corner!

The Student’s Union is very inclusive of everyone on campus. The campus grounds are accessible for everyone to walk through including members of the general public meaning that links can be formed between the univeraity and the wider community.

My university is amazing! The support from lecturers, the students union and fellow students is well appreciated! The campus is a safe and fun environment, with an amazing libaray, canteen and SU bar. I am happy with my decision to study at YSJ and would recommend to anyone wanting to study in the north, for a memorable time!

The campus is only small, yet feels like you get to know most of the people after seeing them every day or week. The uni is there to help you with anything through the president of wellbeing and diversity at the students union as well as the well-being team within the university.

Small Univeristy but very friendly, close to the city where there is lots to do. Courses are rather small but that’s a good thing as it means you can get to know your lecturers and vice versa.

The students union, in my option, is fantastic. They hold regular charity events, student nights and overall good quality evenings.

York St John is a small uni, but that gives it a very homely and warm feel. The facilities are great for my course (physio) having two labs full of equipment required to set us up for placement and teach us everything we may need. The tutors are great and willing to answer any questions if you have any, and would be willing to help you out if you feel behind or in trouble.

The campus is amazing, but very small. The quad is gorgeous in the summer though. In terms of facilities, it's quite limited as YSJ is a small uni. But the library is big enough for what we need. My course (Geography) and all the staff involved are exceptional.

Great uni, very community based, warm feeling, friendly staff, great facilities however could do with more study space, more societies could be beneficial too. Students Union could improve nights and pricing too.

3 March 2018

The campus is very close together so it is very easy to get to other buildings. It is situated near the town which I see as a plus. I study history and it is very independent however you are aided in any help you need with the staff being available.

York St. John is a beautiful university, it reminds me of harry otter with its old buildings! Yet it still has the modern side equiped with everything you need. The staff are all so helpful and friendly, as are the students!
