The university has many different strengths and organisations in place for students to fall back on. My academic experience in York is very good; the quality level of the courses I am taking is high and I enjoy going to class. Overall, I feel quite safe on campus and I feel comfortable asking questions in class and at the university in general. Personally my complete experience in York is not great as I am far away from my family and all my friends (as a foreign student I am aware that this is a given), and it is more difficult to connect with other students when you are a postgrad as opposed to undergrad (which I know from experience). This is purely because of the work ethic and the workload which is higher and more stressful and absolutely more lonely for MA students.
