University of York

The Fulbright University of York Award covers a three-to-eight month project for researching, lecturing or teaching in or across any research-active department at the university.

Founded on principles of excellence, equality and opportunity for all, the University of York opened in 1963 with just 230 students.

Since then York has become one of the world’s leading universities. The university has consistently placed in the world’s top 150 universities in both Times Higher Education and QS rankings. For research, York ranked 14th overall and 10th for impact in the most recent UK Research Excellence Framework. Over its lifetime, York has carved out a reputation as an academic powerhouse with national and international recognition alongside longer established institutions. 

Situated within walking-distance of the historic city of York, the university enjoys a beautiful location in one of Europe’s finest cities.
