Information for prospective students

“Never more has the world needed bright, enquiring minds, just like yours” - a message from our Vice-Chancellor, Charlie Jeffery

As a prospective student or offer holder, we appreciate you may have concerns about the latest UK government announcements setting out the cancellation of exams and a new lockdown.

As a university for public good, we believe that education for individual and collective wellbeing and advancement has never been so important. So we welcome the extension of the UCAS undergraduate application deadline for equal consideration to Friday 29 January at 6pm.

We want to reassure you that our shared sense of community and compassion puts our students at the very heart of our University, even more so during this unsettling period.

If your choice is York, we're committed to doing everything we can to support you with your application and welcome you here in September. For the latest information about applying to York please visit our prospective student web pages.
