Located halfway between Edinburgh and London, the city of York is one of England's finest examples of how life was lived in medieval times. With its ancient medieval walls, towering gothic cathedral and narrow, cobble-stoned lanes, the city is an endlessly fascinating window into the past. Students who love history and are committed Anglophiles, will find the charm and quaintness of York and the academic excellence at the University a compelling combination.
Named University of the Year and ranked sixth overall, the University of York offers some of the best teaching of any university in the UK. With consistently top rankings in a variety of subjects, York offers particular strengths to students in history, art history, English, music and historic preservation. The University emphasizes seminar-based courses, and personal attention from faculty. Both academic and social life takes place in the residential colleges. A relatively young university by British standards, the campus buildings of tastefully designed concrete, glass and steel provide easy access, making it an ideal choice for students with disabilities.
