Subject: York is great ! !
The University of York, Yorkshire, England.

York offers the advantages of a modern campus-based University, set in delightful landscaped parkland and with a friendly, open community, in the context of a remarkable historic city.

York´s outstanding academic standards have established a distinguished reputation for scholarship since its inception in 1963. Together with Cambridge, York tops the teaching league with the highest scores in official teaching assessments. The Sunday Times named York the University of the Year 2003-2004, praising it for its ´sustained excellence´.

York is also rated sixth out of 172 Higher Education institutions for research, with three-quarters of its departments awarded the highest ratings (5 or 5*) in the last Research Assessment Exercise carried out by the Higher Educations Funds Council for England (HEFCE). These top-rating departments include those allied to medicine, such as Nursing, Health Studies, Biology, Chemistry and Psychology.

York has around 10,500 students, equally spread between sciences, social sciences and the arts, yet maintains a strong sense of community which owes much to the collegiate structure. All York students can begin their studies in collegebased accommodation with access to their own social facilities ? a smaller-scale environment within the wide, diverse spread of the entire university. The campus lake, landscaping, ancient trees and varied wild life, provide a unique setting for every aspect of university life, while both students and staff benefit from their own concert halls, theatre, film theatre, sports centre, bookshops, local pubs and many other facilities ? in addition to the vibrant city life available within ten minutes´ cycle ride.

The widely international student body also runs around 100 student societies, including award-winning newspapers, the country´s first independent radio station, music societies for every taste, political parties, film production and a whole lot more from juggling to pot-holing. Around 50 sports clubs compete at both inter-college and inter-varsity level.

Like Hull, York has a reputation for friendliness, excellent employability scores, low drop-out rates and a positive approach to access for all. Working with Hull to establish HYMS, the University has also demonstrated its commitment to the region and boosted already strong links with the NHS. As a HYMS medical student you will experience the benefits of these close working relationships, on campus, in hospitals and in the community.
