List of universities in Yorkshire and the Humber
A list of universities in Yorkshire and the Humber, this includes the educational institutions primarily based in the Yorkshire and the Humber region of England, which have achieved the status of university, as approved by the Privy Council.
All the institutions in the run a range of courses at both undergraduate and postgraduate levels. They are all state financed, except the private University of Law, and all have their undergraduate course admissions operated by UCAS.
The universities are all of different ages with the established age representing the time that each institution was granted its own university status. Many of the institutions have histories dating back many years before these dates as other types of institutions. For example Sheffield Hallam University was previously Sheffield Polytechnic and York St John University was previously York St John University College and the College of Ripon and York St John.
Most of the universities are completely located in the towns and cities in the regions, the exception being the University of Huddersfield. It is located in the towns of Huddersfield and Barnsley in Yorkshire and the Humber and Oldham in the North West of England region. Also, there is a campus of the University of Lincoln at Hull, although the main campus is located in its namesake city of Lincoln in the East Midlands regions.
As well as universities there are a number of other educational institutions in Yorkshire and the Humber which offer degrees. These range from Leeds College of Music and Northern School of Contemporary Dance to a whole list of Further Education and Higher Education colleges based in towns and cities across the region.
Absent from the list is the University of Teesside which is located in the town of Middlesbrough. Although Middlesbrough is located in the historic county of the North Riding of Yorkshire and the ceremonial county of North Yorkshire, Middlesbrough actually forms part of the North East of England region and not the Yorkshire and the Humber region.
