Why come to the University of Hull?


Top 5 reasons to choose the University of Hull

At the University of Hull we believe that we have the perfect combination of heritage and high technology, in an inspiring and nurturing arena, to help you truly flourish:

High-quality teaching
Studying at the University of Hull is about more than just obtaining a degree; it’s about learning how to learn, question and research too. In the 2015 National Student Survey, 91% of our students praised our staff’s ability to explain things, while 84% agreed that staff made their subject interesting.

Employable graduates
We’re in the top 10 universities in England for employability. In the most recent survey, an impressive 98% of our international graduates were in work or further study within six months of completing their undergraduate course. And 97% of those were in graduate-level work or study.

Outstanding facilities
Our single-site campus contains everything you need from study and sport to shopping and socialising. The world-class Brynmor Jones Library has recently undergone a £28million refurbishment creating a learning environment perfectly equipped for 21st century study.

Cutting-edge research
Our research impacts the world we live in. We are passionate about identifying and solving real life problems and sharing that knowledge and experience with our students. In the 2014 Research Excellence Framework over 60% of our research was ranked as word leading or internationally excellent - and in Geography and Environmental Sciences the impact of our submitted research was ranked in the top 3. We are excited about the difference we are making in the world.

The UK’s City of Culture 2017
Choosing to study here puts you at the heart of 365 days of world-class arts and entertainment as Hull takes centre stage as the UK’s City of Culture in 2017. Our campus already has a rich seam of cultural heritage running through its red-brick surroundings but 2017 will bring further excitement with 1,500 events pledged for the city. Festivals, installations and a University programme of events will provide plenty of big names to go and see as well as CV-boosting opportunities to volunteer behind the scenes.  This is a once-in-a-lifetime chance to be a part of a unique moment in history.
