About us

York College University Centre is a vibrant community with high-quality courses and a strong tradition in higher education. Our broad range of degree and higher-level courses offer a mixture of full and part-time programmes that are designed with your future employability in mind.

Undergraduate qualifications are courses that are an academic step-up from A Levels or equivalent Level 3 courses. Our undergraduate qualifications include foundation degrees, bachelor’s degrees, BA top-ups, Higher National Certificates and Diplomas, higher apprenticeships, and higher professional qualifications.

We appreciate that not everyone follows the same path and encourage applicants from all walks of life, including those who are perhaps returning to education or are looking for career advancement or change. Our higher education provision provides the support, flexibility, contact time and teaching required to help students of all types succeed.
