Approx Jewish Students on campus - 10+

York is a university has a beautiful campus which is a short walk from the city centre, the city is full of Jewish history as well as restaurants and quaint independent establishments. The University has a great community feel from the campus base and it’s a perfect match for a positive student experience.
