York St John is an ambitious, modern university at the heart of historic York and there’s never been a more exciting time to join us.

After investing over £110 million in our campus and facilities, establishing nine schools across multiple expertise and developing a suite of attractive, contemporary courses, we’ve seen the biggest rise across all English universities in UCAS acceptances this year.

Central to our ambition is an absolute commitment to academic excellence. Over a third of our research is already world leading or internationally excellent and we’re going further and faster to enhance this, with collaborative opportunities to do work that makes a real world impact and promotes social justice.

We’ve also created the conditions for quality teaching to thrive. We’re third in the UK for the proportion of our academics with formal teaching qualifications, we’re a consistent Stonewall Top 100 employer and we hold the Social Enterprise Gold Mark for Responsible Business Practice. Our strength lies in our community: renowned for our friendly, supportive environment we will nurture your talent so that you can accomplish your ambitions.

As part of our expansion we currently have a number of new academic opportunities. If you’d like to shape the story of a 175 year old institution with a fantastic future, we’d love to hear from you.
