The University of Hull

As England’s 14th-oldest university, the University of Hull has a proud heritage of academic excellence and a history of creating and inspiring life-changing research. Recently, it was proud to be selected as the first ever official university partner of Team GB – the UK’s Olympic team – offering exciting opportunities to students across all subjects.

The University earned a Silver Award in the Government’s Teaching Excellence Framework which praised the “excellent outcomes” achieved by a “very high proportion” of students. Indeed, an impressive 95.9% of them go into work or further study within six months of graduating.*

As well as providing academic excellence in a number of high-ranking subject areas and research, the student experience on campus is an important focus.

A total of £300 million has been invested on new facilities including a world-class library, a state-of-the-art concert hall, on-campus student accommodation and new sports facilities. The superb new Allam Medical Building was the overall winner in the ‘Buildings That Inspire’ category of The Guardian’s University Awards 2018.

At Hull, you will find everything you need to study, live and socialise - from versatile work spaces to brand new on-campus accommodation and a high quality careers service – all on one site. And with free high-speed WiFi across campus, it's easy to stay in touch with family and friends back home.

The University is incredibly ambitious about its research agenda. It takes on the big global challenges – from health to habitats, from food to flooding and from supply chains to slavery. That means students are taught by experts whose research informs their teaching.

The award-winning student union – with more than 160 societies and sports clubs – ensures students get the most of everything that university life has to offer. And the Student Support Team provides expert advice on a wide range of issues including learning support, health and wellbeing, visas and immigration.

The University’s Careers Service offers a range of support, from CV-writing workshops and interview practice to placements and internships, not only during your studies but throughout your career, whenever you need it.

Our students find that Hull is a very affordable city – with the cheapest accommodation rents in England – and the University also offers a range of generous scholarships and bursaries to help students with the cost of their studies.

The University’s red-brick campus is based in the leafy Avenues area, home to some of Hull’s best cafes, bars and independent shops, only a short bus ride away from the bustling city centre.

Hull’s location – roughly halfway between London and Edinburgh – puts us within striking distance of most parts of the UK. Served by Humberside Airport and Hull Paragon Station, Hull is a well-connected city, with Humberside Airport offering daily flights to mainland Europe and direct train journeys to London (2.5 hours) and Manchester (2 hours).
