University of York is one of Britain’s younger universities, founded in the 1960s, but has quickly risen in the rankings given a consistent outperformance in teaching and research. A multi-faculty university located in the medium-sized and beautiful city of York, it offers a nice and balanced student lifestyle. The university is particularly focused on leading innovative research, and integrates this into its research-led teaching style. University of York is a member of the prestigious Russell Group of leading research universities in the UK – a testament to its commitment to performing world class scientific studies. Student life, like at Oxbridge, is organised in Colleges where students live and socialise.
