There aren't a great deal of places you can go and sit and eat without making some sort of purchase, unless you're happy to sit and eat in the library or in class. But if you want to eat elsewhere with friends, there's plenty of space, it's just necessary to make some sort of purchase first.

The course was very demanding but also very interesting at the same time. It can appear overwhelming at times with having several essays to complete as well as SOL's (homework) and attending placements. However, the university sorts out every placement meaning you do not need to worry about that and you get a lot of help and input from teaching staff around essays including how to conduct relevant evidence/ literature search. There are also writing workshops available for free if you feel you need the extra help which was extremely useful especially when writing dissertations!×

Grays Wharf and Percys Lane accommodation although being the nicest (in terms of having an en suite/modern design) are extremely strict. Security are regularly called to those having pre drinks or flat parties even at 9pm, whereas this doesn't happen in other accommodation such as The Grange. On campus facilities such as the library and cafeteria are good, and the nightlife in York is also good- there are different events every night of the week.×
as the uni is very close to the centre of town there are good opportunities for part time work and affordable food.Report

League table rankings
Here's where this university ranks in the three main league tables (where available), which are calculated using a combination of stats that they each weight in different ways. They’re a handy guide but don’t offer the full picture – just because a university is top (or bottom) of the league tables doesn’t mean it is (or isn’t) the right choice for you.
