Welcome to York

Our campus is located in the centre of York, a city steeped in history. York Minster, the largest gothic cathedral in Northern Europe, has been the centrepiece of York's skyline since 1080. York's streets are lined with a mix of independent shops and cafes, well known highstreet stores and plenty of restaurants. 

The city also hosts an annual calendar of festivals that showcase local talent and the history of the region. These include the renowned Aesthetica Short Film Festival, the Great Yorkshire Fringe Comedy Festival, York Literature Festival, York Chocolate Festival and the JORVIK Viking Festival.  

Simon Kumar, now a lecturer in Physical Education and Youth Sport, served in the Royal Air Force Regiment, before transitioning to civilian life in 2005 when he became a student at York St John University.

He remembers taking the plunge into full-time education: ‘After leaving the Forces I decided to study for a degree in sport at York St John University, as I had the ambition of becoming a physical educator. I came to an Open Day and remember the sense of community – I felt like the people I talked to were genuinely interested in me as a person, it wasn’t just a sales pitch. When I arrived on campus as a student, I was acutely aware that I hadn’t been in a formal learning environment for some time, and I must admit, it was daunting at first. However, the University was well equipped and understood my situation of not only being a Service leaver but also a mature student. The academic and pastoral support I received really helped my transition and enabled me to settle in and fulfil my potential. As a result of hard work in such a nurturing academic environment, I achieved a first-class Bachelor of Arts honours degree in Sports Studies.’

Celebrate your graduation here and be part of its history!
