Loads of brilliant events for Postgraduates

We’re your Postgraduate Students’ Union, representing you since 1965, and we are delighted to welcome you to the University of York.

Delivering the UK’s biggest Postgraduate Welcome Week we’ve made sure that there’s something for everyone this year. We’ve got some of the biggest events, from Formal Dinners to our Welcome Festival, to plenty of online options, casual day time events, and Postgrad sports.

Welcome Week takes between the 20th September and the 26th September, followed by two weeks of events run by our student-led Networks.

From late night festival fun to a meal in one of York’s oldest buildings, we’re here to give you the real York. There’s so much happening every single day but spaces are limited! So make sure you book on as early as you can.
