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

In less than 50 years we have become one of the world’s leading universities, carving out a reputation as an academic powerhouse where a clear focus on excellence has secured national and international recognition alongside longer established institutions.

Our vision is to make the University of York a world leader:
- in the creation of knowledge through fundamental and applied research
- in the sharing of knowledge by teaching students from varied backgrounds
- in the application of knowledge for the health, prosperity and well-being of people and society.
