The University of Hull was formed in 1927, making us the 14th oldest university in England. With a proud history of academic excellence and creating and inspiring life-changing research, we have a tradition of providing opportunity for all in a friendly and affordable student city (Numbeo.com December 2020).
Teaching and Research Excellence
At Hull learn from academics at the forefront of their field and be part of a vibrant teaching and research community, with many of our programmes enhancing your career potential through incorporated professional and employability skills modules. Hull has also earned a silver award in the Government’s 2018 Teaching Excellence Framework, which recognises excellence in teaching and learning in UK universities and colleges, and an impressive 97.9% of our international students go into work or further study within six months of graduating (HESA 2018).
Our postgraduate programmes give you the chance to study the latest global issues and the opportunity to do your own independent research. We are in the top 50 UK universities for research power (REF 2014) and our ambitious research agenda, together with our research institutes, tackles some of the biggest global challenges, from health to habitats, food to flooding and supply chains to slavery.
Campus and Student Life
You will find everything you need to study, live and socialise all on one site. We have invested £300 million on new facilities including a world-class library, a state-of-the-art 400-seater concert hall with industry standard studio and recording equipment, on-campus student accommodation and new sports facilities. Our student union is home to over 100 societies and sports clubs, many using the sports areas and 120-station fitness suite found in our new Allam Sports Centre. What’s more we are also the only university to be an Official Partner of Team GB.
Students are allocated a Personal Supervisor who gives academic advice, feedback and guidance throughout the year. Whilst our Student Services Team provide support on matters like health, wellbeing and expert career guidance – to ensure you get the most out of everything our University has to offer.
To support our postgraduate research students we have a dedicated Doctoral College which provides a skills development programme and postgraduate training scheme, together with informal occasions to learn from peers.
English Language and Foundation Programmes
If you need more support before studying with us, we offer different levels of pre-sessional English language courses and our pathway provider, ONCAMPUS, has pre-masters programmes to help you gain entry.
