    Hi, I'm applying for uni 2017 as I'm currently on a gap year. I visited York a few months ago and it is one of my 5 for UCAS...what is York like?! Accomodation, making friends, socializing, nightlife? I'm probably going to study the Accounting and Finance course - is it a good course?

    Hiya,

    If you'd like to know more about this kind of thing, you can have a read of our student blogs! They cover a whole range of themes and hopefully will give you a good idea about what it's like to be a student at York!

    This is my 9th week at UOY and so far its been great! I'm in Constantine accommodation and have a premium room which is very modern and nice but still a bit overpriced for what it is. I've made a lot of friends in my flat, on my course, people who I've randomly met at events and in clubs etc and feel that the social life here is pretty good. York has a few student club nights and I've been quite impressed with all of them, especially considering that the city isn't renowned for its nightlife. Also, the student union runs a few parties on campus throughout the term which are pretty good and drinks aren't too pricey.

    I can't really speak for your course as I'm not studying the same thing but overall I'd recommend York!
