We asked our students what they thought about studying at a postgraduate level at York, and here's what they told us:
"York is full of life, with music, street performances, and an infinite choice of cuisine. Weekends spent in York are my favorites!"
"Even though the lecturers in the department are some of the most respected in their field, they remain passionate, humble, and are always willing to spare some time to discuss topics in depth."
"I apply more or less everything I studied at York in my day-to-day job."
"The range of topics that I have covered has allowed me to challenge my preconceptions and develop a broader and more realistic view of how Computer Science affects people."
"The relaxed nature of the staff, the well structured and planned teaching and the friends I made all contributed to a greatly positive experience at York."
"The academics at York supported my research proposal, going as far as to help me to formulate the proposal and source funding. The support I was given at the application stage was a clear factor in helping me to choose to study at York."
"I like the freedom granted to me to pursue ideas and interests. The work environment is fantastic; colleagues and supervisors are also friends, and if you need it, support can be found wherever you look."
"You are really looked after in York, there's nowhere else I would rather be completing my PhD!"
"I feel right at home within Computer Science here at York. The facilities are outstanding, and the staff are genuinely interested in how your research, and indeed you as a researcher, are developing."
"The facilities here at York are of excellent quality. The buildings have great spaces, with places to work and collaborate."
"For me the PhD has been exactly what I wanted from university; studying and contributing towards state-of-the-art topics."
