Vice Chancellor, York St John University

For almost 200 years, York St John University has transformed lives through the power of education in the heart of historic York.


Originally founded to give people from all backgrounds the chance to access learning – our work to widen participation, release human potential and promote social justice remains integral to our modern-day mission.


In recent years the University has enjoyed a variety of successes.  We are among the top 30 universities nationally for both overall student satisfaction (National Student Survey 2019) and for the percentage of our graduates who are in education or employment within six months of graduating. We have seen growth in student numbers by diversifying our academic portfolio at undergraduate level and moving into new markets.


With a recently launched seven-year Strategy in place (see link below), a new brand introduced and major initiatives including a sister campus in London and a new Creative Centre opening on our York campus in 2021, the foundations have been laid for a bold and exciting future.  


Now, we are seeking a new Vice Chancellor with the leadership experience and academic credibility to steer us through the next stage of our journey and sustain our strategic progress.
