York College offers students the opportunity to progress their learning in a more adult environment, and our aim is to equip students with research and study skills, as well as the confidence and self-discipline that will help them stand on their own two feet as independent learners.
Our students tell us that they enjoy the more mature 'junior university' environment that College provides, enabling them to be treated as adults, whilst still receiving the highest quality support and guidance.
This environment promotes self-motivation, good time management skills and prepares them for what university or employed life will be like. It is also a great chance to take part in a range of extra-curricular activities, and is also a fantastic way of meeting new friends with similar interests.

At York College, we offer the following types of courses:
A Levels have an academic approach to subjects and are primarily assessed by written exams. Students are advised to take four AS Level subjects. Many students will drop one AS Level at the end of the first year, and study their remaining three subjects to A2 Level (full A Level).
These courses have a contextual approach to learning and are primarily assessed through assignments and coursework. Students should choose one Vocational/Technical course.
These two year technical programmes are new Level 3 courses developed in collaboration with employers and businesses. They will help you to build the knowledge and experience you need, to get the job you want, through a balance of classroom-based theory and an industry work placement.
These provide a mixture of on and off-the-job training whilst being paid. Students should choose one Apprenticeship course.
We also offer degree courses and higher-level study, as well as courses for adults.
