University of York

The Fulbright University of York Award covers the first year of any masters 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 proud member of the prestigious Russell Group we are committed to research-led teaching, providing a supportive and inclusive learning experience for our students. Indeed, York ranked in the UK’s Top 10 universities for Research in the latest Research Excellence Framework. 

The University is based across three campuses, with the main two side by side on a lush 500 acre parkland site, and the third housed in the 16th century city centre Kings Manor. York is one of a handful of UK universities with a Collegiate  system, with our eleven colleges providing accommodation in private bedrooms, organising a range of social and sporting events and acting as a support network to create a robust sense of community amongst our students. Our Students’ Union (YUSU) and Graduate Student Association (GSA) run a huge selection of clubs and societies open to everyone, making it easy for new students to integrate and feel at home throughout their studies. 

Regularly voted the ‘best place to live in the UK’, York is home to 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. 

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.
