    York Uni or York St John mate?

    I went to York St John as a mature student and in terms of the city I loved it. Student friendly and pretty safe.

    Excellent real ale pubs for when you visit too 😉

    My friend went to York Uni and loved it. Came out with a first. She will love it and be fine.

    Best time of her life. 🙂

    It sounds old, but it’s one of the youngest universities in the UK.

    Beyond that, not a great deal. Good university in general, visited the Heslington campus many times and York the city seems a really sound place to live. I have a couple of people in my group who did undergrad and PhD there and they loved it as a place to study and live, go back a lot.

    Without knowing anything about the psychology dept in particular, you’d expect standards of education to be at a generic good level for a Russell group place. It’s rare for a department to be completely out of line in that regard nowadays.

    Well aware of the pubs there as I used to go round ’em when at York going drag racing back in the day! ;0)

    York’s a northern Bath. Great city to be a student in, if a little ‘safe’, posh and unadventurous compared to bigger UK cities. I would have thought the standards will be high and the York name good on a CV.

    Full of idiots who got rejected from Oxbridge… 😉

    (I may be biased, I went to Leeds)

    Ah, sorry, St Johns. That’s the decent uni in York. Good on her.

    My sister did her PGCE at St Johns. She loved it and has stayed in York.

    One of my daughters has just gone there to study Psychology so anybody got anything useful to impart about the place?
