"York is the perfect city for leisure and culture. It is a Medieval city and has a lot of beautiful buildings (as for example the York minster) and a great city wall to walk on. The university provides really high quality education and support. York itself is a beautiful city with great people, everyone is very nice and very open. I already miss it." - experience from a former exchange student
