About University: York opened in 1963, part of the new wave of British universities, and since then has gone on to secure its place as one of the best places in the country to study. It enjoys a collegiate system similar to Oxbridge, though the divisions don't seem to be as rigid (college spirit runs high but teaching is across the university). Most students are based on the landscaped campus on the outskirts of the city. The 60s concrete buildings might be an acquired taste, but you'll probably end up quite fond of them; in any case, the wide grassy spaces and leafy interludes, not to mention the large lake, take the edge off. The campus expansion of a new college and four academic departments is only a short stroll away.

York is a superlative historic city with a history stretching back to Roman times and the evidence of it all around you. The present day makes its presence felt, too, with a lively social scene and plenty of facilities for having fun in whatever form you like it. Sports and societies are just as important as the teaching and learning here.
