York St John University have partnered with the largest,, specialist Higher Education retailer in the UK to present the Aspire scheme for students joining in the 2017/18 academic year.

To help all of our students achieve and develop during their time studying with us, we have created the York St John University Aspire Scheme, run in conjunction with the John Smith Group. The scheme aims to help you make the very best of your time at York St John University by improving access to the tools you need to support your studies. Aspire funds can be used to purchase items that will help with learning on your course for example books and other course materials pre-determined by Subject Directors.

All eligible students will receive up to £100 on your Aspire card (with an extra £400 given to students from a widening participation background). Your account can also be topped up with additional funds at any time during your study with us.

You're already eligible for the Aspire scheme so you don't need to apply, but you will need to register your details and activate your account before you can be issued with your personalised card. More details will be sent to prior to you starting your degree with us.
