York College

We organise a number of trips and excursions for international students. Our programme of trips for September to December 2017 is available here. Dates remain subject to confirmation.

Details of our International Social Programme for September to Christmas are given below. These activities are designed for international students and mix culture with fun! There is a small charge for these trips with promotional packages available for students paying in advance of the new academic year. Dates and prices will be issued over the summer.

In addition York College has a number of student clubs and societies that you can take part in to meet new people and learn new skills. You can find out more by following this link.
