  • Alumni discount: a 10% fee reduction for alumni who choose to return and study at a later date.

Accommodation for Postgraduate Students

  • Most postgraduate students choose to live in privately rented accommodation. The university ensures students have access to a high standard of accommodation, and are treated fairly by landlords, by partaking in YorProperty, the local council's voluntary landlord accreditation scheme.
  • University accommodation includes studio apartments and shared flats or houses. All are within a 20-minute walk of campus, have Wi-Fi access and 60% are en-suite. While most university accommodation is rented by undergraduate students, postgraduates can also apply for a place – but exclusive accommodation with postgraduate students cannot be guaranteed.
