All these factors are pertinent to the academic experience witnessed by the students and once the results are published the response is welcomed by the University & Student Union for reinforcing better facilities for the students. 

Talking about York’s achievement, for the last 6 years consecutively it has been awarded by the NSS for offering remarkable facilities to the students.

Apart from this, the university had also pledged to resume all the offline classes with a bang post the lockdown was uplifted with promising facilities whilst maintaining all the necessary social distancing & covid precautions. With the resume of the offline classes, it was seen that the academic graph of the students accelerated rapidly as they focused more during the classroom lectures.
