About us

York St John is a prestigious university with roots going back to the 1840's. By 1904 St John's was the largest Diocesan College in the country with 112 students (today we have almost 6,000 students studying with us).

After rapid development of its subject base and student numbers both institutions merged to become the College of Ripon & York St John in 1974. The University has also had a long and productive relationship with the University of Leeds dating back to 1920. The University continues to validate research degrees.

In 1999 the College's Board of Governors decided to relocate all taught courses to the York campus - and by the end of 2001 all students and staff had transferred across to York and a new name was chosen, York St John.

Today the University is based on an award winning campus in the centre of York with almost 6,000 students studying on a wide range of subjects. It has a wide network of regional, national and international partnerships with a highly recognised reputation for its teaching and learning.
