About York University

Since its inception in 1959, York University has become world renowned for its unique interdisciplinary approach to teaching and research. A York University education provides a broad perspective and a modern approach to real world issues studied from every angle. York is where students and faculty from differing disciplines join together to explore their subjects to the fullest possible extent. The result is a dynamic, all-round perspective that delivers a more relevant learning experience. Our graduates are better able to develop advanced solutions to complex problems, and benefit from a unique perspective that is both flexible and optimistic.

York University is also known for its interdisciplinary approach to research and scholarship. We are home to 23 research centres covering a wide spectrum of interests from Sustainability and Vision Research, to Earth and Space Science and Refugee Studies.

York is an academic community of over 60,000 people, 7,300 faculty and staff, 54,000 undergraduate and graduate students and over 190,000 alumni. The University graduates more than 7,000 students annually from its 11 faculties: Arts, Atkinson Faculty of Liberal and Professional Studies, Education, Environmental Studies, Fine Arts, Glendon College, Graduate Studies, Osgoode Hall Law School, Health, Schulich School of Business, and Science and Engineering.

York University offers a world-class, modern academic experience in Toronto, Canada's most international city. York is at the centre of innovation, with a thriving community of faculty, students, staff and alumni who challenge the ordinary and deliver the unexpected. Working together, we redefine the possible.
