History of Art at University of York – 4th place in the national rankings

I just wanted to say a massive well done to the History of Art Department at University of York for being ranked in 4th place in The Sunday Times University Guide 2015!  It’s a great success and I couldn’t agree more with the outcome. I have written many times throughout my blog, History of Art at York is amazing. All those working within the department should be extremely proud with themselves – I know for certain that all I could write in the National Student Survey regarding my time here were positive things. I hope everyone who still studies at York, or will soon be joining, will experience the outstanding work within the department. Well done!

    Hi Roisin, Thanks for the blogs.  We enjoy them, keep them coming. You obviously enjoyed yourself at York.  That’s very good.  I loved it, but I was only there for a week. Have you sorted out your course for next year?

      Merci Uncle Ted 🙂 Is there any chance that you could email me your home address? I’d love to send you both a hand written letter. I have began the application process for my Masters now. It will take a while re-writing my CV and personal statements, but I’ve given myself plenty of time. I’ll tell you more about it in a letter! Hope you are both well, lots of love x
