University of York

The Fulbright University of York Award covers the first year of any master's or doctoral degree programme offered by the university.

The University of York is a leading UK university, creating independent critical thinkers through a culture of academic excellence and ground-breaking research. As a member of the prestigious Russell Group we are committed to research-led teaching, providing a supportive and inclusive learning experience for our students. We hold a Gold Teaching Excellence Framework award, showing that we deliver consistently outstanding teaching, learning and outcomes for our students. 

All our accommodation is on or near campus and is guaranteed for international students. You’ll become a member of one of our nine colleges which encourages inclusivity and a valuable sense of community, through a wealth of social activities and a supportive system available to each and every student. A wide variety of clubs and societies on campus, as well as our college system, make it very easy for new students to integrate and feel at home throughout their studies.

York is a flourishing city, regularly voted the ‘best place to live in the UK’.  With a wide array of shops, museums, festivals, sporting and cultural activities, restaurants and cafes it’s big enough to feel lively, but small enough to be friendly and just a short walk from campus.

Please note, for applications to study at the University of York, it is highly recommended that you request a letter of support from an academic within your receiving department at York. Failure to do so will place your application at a disadvantage.
