We want you to have the best study experience possible in the UK, and here are just some of the reasons why we believe that Hull is the best choice.
– Excellence in teaching – The Student Barometer Autumn Wave 2014 found that 96% of our students are satisfied with our lecturers’ subject area expertise.
– A reputation for groundbreaking research – In the 2014 Research Excellence Framework, over 60% of our research was considered to be world leading or internationally excellent.
– High graduate employability – Our graduates have an impressive track record of finding relevant employment upon completion of their studies. In the most recent HESA Employability League Tables, we ranked within the top 20 universities in the UK for graduate employability, with 93% of our graduates progressing onto work or further study within six months of leaving the University.
– Fantastic facilities – Everything you need to enjoy an excellent student experience is within easy reach on our 125-acre, single site campus, including our recently refurbished Brynmor Jones Library – a perfect and high-tech environment for study and socialising – and high speed WiFi throughout.
– A truly international university – With over 1,500 international students currently studying with us from 100 countries worldwide, we truly are a multicultural institution. Our international students tell us that we excel in giving them a warm welcome: we received a top 10 rating in the Student Barometer Autumn Wave 2014 for assisting new international arrivals to integrate into student life in the UK.
– We invite you to study in a City of Culture – We’re excited that Hull has been named City of Culture 2017, with our University playing a key role as an official strategic partner.
