What are York's strengths?Watch
What would you say York's particular strengths are?
At least I hope its good there cause I might be going there for it.
I hate it when people throw ranking data at each other, but I had a quick look at how York ranks for English... I know, I know
But it looks pretty strong so I'm glad I looked! Top ten in the Complete Uni Guide and top 30 in the world in one of the global rankings.
There are also some fantastic opportunities with student societies here at York - I'm on the committee of one called York Community Consulting, which lets students volunteer to solve problems that local charities have - if you'd like to know more please don't hesitate to ask!
Paul smith that's quite a serious accusation, could you back it up at all please, and let us know of your experience with the university?
lecture given at Nottingham University by a Professor of Organic chemistry form Oxford University which Mr Paul Walton attended because he was then a PHD student at Nottingham when went to York he then delivered this same lecture practically word for word and delivered the lecture as his own - plagiarism.
York looks strong from the data I've seen and I'd be interested to see opinions from those in the know. I've also heard about York's strong reputation in politics.
