Allocation to Hull or York is normally randomly by ballot, and we don't allocate accommodation until applicants have firmly accepted a place at HYMS (normally in early June). We reserve the right to alter campus allocations after A-level results have been confirmed, if this is absolutely necessary to correct a serious imbalance which might otherwise endanger clinical learning opportunities.
Requesting a specific campus
Normally, we will only consider requests for a specific campus allocation if you fall into one of the following categories:
- You live within 30 miles of the campus, and you intend to live at home and travel to university every day. (If you live 31-45 miles away, the HYMS Board of Studies will consider your request. If you live further than this, the University Special Cases Committee will consider your request.)
- The address on your initial UCAS application is within our area -- that is, your LEA is Humber, N Lincs, NE Lincs, York, Hull, N Yorks or East Riding.
- You're already a student at the University of York or the University of Hull when you apply.
- You have a sibling who is already a student at the University of York or the University of Hull (and who is not in the final year when you apply).
If any of these categories applies to you, you can request to be allocated to the campus that's nearer you. If you have a sibling at one of our parent universities, you can request either to be allocated to that campus or to the other one!
To make a request, you must firmly accept our offer, and then send a written request by 3 May 2013. Send your request to the Admissions Officer, HYMS, University of York YO10 5DD. Include any relevant documentation, and state your UCAS number. You will hear the result of your request from us by June at the latest. If HYMS was only your insurance offer in April, we can't guarantee to meet your request.
In years 3, 4 and 5, all students undertake placements across the whole of our region, including Hull, York, Scarborough, Scunthorpe and Grimsby, regardless of their home campus.
