Science and engineering subject areas at the University of Hull have leapt up the Guardian University League Tables for 2016.

Subject areas have achieved considerable success, with Computer Science, Geography and Environment Sciences, and Sports Science ranked in the top third. Biosciences has also risen strongly by 16 places.

The University as a whole has climbed 21 places, securing Hull in the top ten Universities in the north of England.

The survey, associated with teaching quality, ranks according to a number of factors, including how happy students are with their courses.

Value added degrees

Our students are at the heart of everything we do and we hope these results reflect this commitment. We are particularly proud of the added value of our degrees.

Students come to the University of Hull with a variety of different educational backgrounds and study through different routes.

This can be a degree with a foundation year for those with alternative entry qualifications, students with excellent A Levels studying an integrated Masters degree, or taking part in our pre-University Talent Development Programme.

Whatever qualifications our students come to us with, they can leave with excellent degrees. For example our foundation year students, who may not have A Levels, often finish top of their class.

The University is constantly adding value to its offering and has a new academic offer for 2016, including giving every student the opportunity to integrate a work placement option into all of our degrees.
