Program Description:

Students will be based in picturesque York, on the banks of the River Ouse in the center of the Vale of York. It lies halfway between the capitals of London and Edinburgh. At York St. John University, an intimate learning environment similar to Union, students can enroll in three courses of their choice to fulfill requirements in any major. Approximately 3,800 full-time undergraduates study at the university, in addition to about 225 full-time postgraduates.

Once a manufacturing hub and important crossroads of England's railway network, today York features an economy more focused on services than goods, with a tourism industry that thrives on the city's wealth of historic attractions (York Minster is the most prominent) and a variety of cultural activities.

Course of Study

Union students will take three courses, one of which is taught by the Union faculty leader, the other two will be chosen from the York St. John catalog.

Accommodations

Union students will reside in off campus housing called The Grange, which is a 10 minute walk to York St. John University. Students will be credited board at Union as they will need to provide their own meals while at York.
