The University of York has conference accommodation which can be booked in advance. There are also many hotels and B&B’s in the surrounding areas (YO10 for University, YO1 for City Centre).
Leeds Bradford Airport is the closest airport to York. From Leeds Bradford Airport you can take the bus to Leeds train station, then the train to York. More details can be found here . Alternatively, you could get a taxi from the Airport to York Centre which takes around 60 minutes.
Manchester Airport is also well connected and there is a train directly from the airport to York station which takes around 90 minutes.
There are frequent buses (66 or 44) from the train station and city centre to the University of York which take around 20 minutes. They cost £1.50 or £2 return and you buy the ticket on board. A taxi from the city centre or train station will cost around £6-8. The taxi service we normally use is Fleetways (01904 645 333) or if you are arriving by train, Station Taxis (01904 623 332).
We strongly recommend not bringing one’s own car to campus, as parking is very limited, but there are some pay and display parking options on campus. We advise arriving early to secure a space.
Payment can be made securely by card using the link provided on the booking form, alternatively you can choose to receive an invoice. York Health Economics Consortium is unable to grant extended credit and therefore must request that full payment be made within 21 days from the date of invoice. Should payment not be received within 21 days from the date of invoice, York Health Economics Consortium will apply an administration charge of £40+VAT. All payments must be received before attending the training course.
The day will close no later than 5:00 p.m.
We order set menus from University caterers but we take into account the dietary requirements listed on the course booking forms. Food is booked a week in advance of the course so please let us know if you have any specific requirements before then.
You should receive a confirmation email within 2 working days of booking. If you haven’t please email email@example.com. Due to limited space on the courses, bookings are not secure until payment is received.
