York St John University (YSJU) has educated and inspired students at its award-winning campus in the heart of York for over 176 years. Founded on 17 May 1841, York St John achieved University status in 2006 and Research Degree Awarding Powers for PhD and doctoral programmes in 2015.
The creation of nine new academic schools and an increase in the range of demand-led courses has led to a record rise in student numbers. York St John now offers over 100 degree courses, with new options in Games Design, Criminology, Policing Studies and Biomedical Science.
The university joined the Solutionpath customer community in January 2018 to better understand and improve the learning experiences of their students. Solutionpath are the team behind StREAM, a Digital Engagement Learner Analytics (DELA) platform that combines student engagement and learning data from systems such as the VLE, library, e-resources, journals and printing facilities, to establish behavioural baselines for students and quickly spot changes that indicate disengagement.
