Information for Teachers, Advisors and Tutors
At the University of York we have a dedicated team who work with schools, colleges and organisations to support students on their journey to higher education and hopefully consider York.
We run Open Days, events, activities, free online courses and lots more that might be of interest to your students. Our dedicated team also works closely with schools and colleges to deliver CPD sessions and personalised support.
Access and Contextual Admissions
We have a particular commitment to widening access to studying at York with our aims to create ‘a university for public good’. We want to create a diverse campus culture and offer support to help potential students fulfil their potential.
Our groundbreaking Contextual Offer Scheme and York Access Scheme are sector leading and offer new opportunities for students. We also run a host of programmes and projects which support students who are typically underrepresented in higher education. Please visit our website or get in touch to find out more.
