BSc (Hons) Economics - Batch of 2025
A historical institution to build a better future for all people from all walks of life.
Tips: The transition to a new country is never simple but there is a lot of support for anyone that's looking for it. Before moving to York, it would be good to get in contact with coursemates and students you will be living with. In addition, spend time looking into societies you want to get involved in as early on in the year there will be plenty of taste sessions to go and participate in which will aid in socializing in a new environment. The university also has a buddy programme that would put you in touch with someone at the university who may have gone through the experience previously and guide you through an easy transition experience. Looking for part-time jobs is fairly easy as well, the university has its own platform, Handshake to look for opportunities. Indeed is a great widely used option as well.
Likes (Safety): Campus security maintains a very active presence on campus with routine patrols to ensure safety and is very helpful in medical emergencies as well. Other than campus security, York is generally a very safe city. It consistently ranks in the top 5 of the safest areas within the UK for student areas which means stepping out late at night can be stress-free for everyone.
Dislikes (Public transportation): York has a well established bus network that allows you to travel around the city comfortably with options to track bus timings. We also have an app as well. The train station in the city centre has great connectivity with direct trains to London taking about 2 hours.

MSc Human-Centred Interactive Technologies - Batch of 2024
University of York is all thing from study to support
Tips: The University of York is a research based Russell group university. University is located in York, a welcoming and peaceful city, with historical architecture. Apart from the city, campus itself is beautiful and has a lot of study space for individual as well as group study. Also, the university offers student assistance right from the application process to the move to York. Staff is accommodating and helps students to their best knowledge. University provides guidance to improve skills for academics and professional prospects as well as in managing living expenses. I received Chevening Scholarship funded by UK FCDO, in which 20% of the scholarship is funded by the university.
Likes (Quality of faculty): Faculty at the University of York can be contacted via email or in-person. They are friendly and understand the demands of the diverse student community. Instead of traditional methods of providing classroom lectures, university employs a novel approach, they are a mix of lectures, seminars, practical, and also drop-in sessions for questions.
Dislikes (Public transportation): The University of York provides a free campus shuttle bus to students and faculty. Campus shuttle connects all of the major bus stop from West to east campus. Aside from the free campus shuttle, various paid public transmit options are available. The campus is well-connected to the main city, York City Centre is in 10 minutes walking distance from campus West.

MSc Biotechnology - Batch of 2024
My Experience with University of York
Tips: One of the most important changes that I have experienced is the change in the weather. The winters in York can get really cold so please be prepared to buy good quality winter wear that will last. The University has done a lot to make the transition smoother. There are a number of fresher week activities including college lunches and coffee meets where students can meet other international students as well as home students. There is also a lot of mental health support available at the university which are easily available to all. There is a visa office that helps with any queries regarding your visa or stay. The curriculum is different from what it is in India and there is a dedicated academic skills hub for helping students ease into the university curriculum. York itself is a beautiful city, especially for history buffs like myself. The university campus is serene and green and there is plenty of study space. Overall I am satisfied with the University campus and its curriculum.
Likes (Part time work): There are a number of on campus part time work available like International ambassadors, academic representatives etc. In addition, there are a number of shops and cafes like Nisa and Greggs within the campus which can offer possible employability. York is a relatively small and historic city with enough part-time jobs available. Update the resume and use indeed and LinkedIn to do the applications. The minimum wage is 10 pounds and since there is a 20-hour work limit per week, it is possible to effectively manage academics and work.
Dislikes (Indian Food): There are a number of Indian restaurants in the City Centre but they are a bit expensive. The groceries however are pretty affordable. It's highly recommended to cook for yourself during the initial months until you're settled in. Indian groceries are available in shops like Morrisons and Makkah which are about 30 minutes away from the University.

MSc by Research in Computer Science - Batch of 2023
The University of York is an excellent university in each aspect.
Tips: York is a good university but primarily depends on your course. However, the Computer Science department is very good. I didn't get any scholarship, but a couple of people whom I know got it, which means yes, scholarships are being offered in my course. When I joined, the fee was 24000 Rs. But now it's around 27K. Moreover, the campus is really good it's like having your own city. I lived in Annelister College, and the accommodation was around 8k when I joined. It was a well-balanced shift in a good way.
