York shortlisted for University of the Year

The University of York has been shortlisted for the prestigious University of the Year Award in The Times Higher Education (THE) Awards 2018. The awards are known as the 'Oscars of Higher Education'.

The University of the Year category celebrates examples of exceptional performance through bold, imaginative and innovative initiatives. Our nomination recognises our achievements in respect of creating an empowered environment to enable staff and students to achieve
extraordinary things, and also takes account of our work to:

  • Deliver innovative teaching
  • Widen access to higher education and support progression through philanthropy
  • Offer stimulating public engagement programmes.

The Acting Vice-Chancellor, Professor Saul Tendler, said: “I’m delighted that the Times Higher Education shortlisting panel has recognised the innovation, enthusiasm and dedication of our staff and students.

“Innovation is key to our success and the shortlisted initiatives are powerful examples of the ways that we continue to embody the University’s founding principles of excellence, equality and opportunity for all.” The winners of the Times Higher Education Awards will be announced at the Grosvenor House Hotel on Thursday 29 November.

The University provides a varied range of business short courses. The high quality, innovative courses equip delegates with a mixture of strategic, practical and core skills to take back to the workplace.
