"The University of Hull remains one of the best kept secrets in higher education." The Sunday Times
Based in one of the most beautiful parts of the country, with easy access to the coast and the countryside, you can be assured of a friendly campus, where staff go beyond to provide that 'extra' support.
To help you decide whether the University of Hull is for you, come along to an Open Day or arrange to visit the University. Take a look at the facilities and the campus, and talk to staff and students. The Careers and Employability Service deliver a number of talks and have a stand in Staff House during open days so feel free to come and talk to us if you have any particular queries.
University Open Days and campus visits
Our Careers and Employability Service was one of the first to be accredited against the new Matrix standard. Matrix is the UK quality standard for advice, information and guidance services.
Many students undertake vacation and part-time work during their course. The University Students' Union runs a Job Shop to help you find part-time and vacation jobs whilst at university, including many on-campus work opportunties.
A big thank you to all those who entered our recent competition. The winner, Katie, has now written a handful of articles for our website about considering higher education and making an application.
It is important that you carefully consider your options.
Being a student is about more than choosing your course. After all, you might be leaving home for the first time. You will want to be sure that you will fit in and that your choice of university meets your expectations and needs.
University offers you opportunities for new experiences, for meeting new people from across the world and developing new skills and greater confidence in addition to extending your education and challenging you academically.
You may be thinking about studying close to home or branching out for greater independence.
You may feel more at home on a smaller campus, or want a larger campus. Try and reflect on what is right for you.
We have produced a checklist of things to consider when choosing a course and a university - from accommodation to course modules, from location to local travel costs.
You might like to print a copy and take it to open days.
