Founded in 1963, the University of York traces its origins to 16th-century petitions to establish a university in York City. Approval to build the school was granted three centuries after in the 1960s, led by prominent British educator Baron James of Rusholme. In 1963, the university formally opened, welcoming 236 undergraduates and 14 postgraduate learners.
By 2020, York has become the academic home of more than 14,000 undergraduates, 5,000 postgraduate students, and 3,000 administrative personnel.

Looking ahead, York continues its mission to be a community of purpose that welcomes people of all backgrounds and identities. The university actively provides support to its student unions and organizations as well as endow information on professional opportunities to graduates.
