As England’s 14th-oldest university, the University of Hull has a proud heritage of academic excellence and a history of creating and inspiring life-changing research. World university ranking experts QS awarded us four stars overall, and a maximum five stars for our teaching, employability, facilities, innovation, internationalisation and inclusiveness.
We earned a Silver Award in the Government’s Teaching Excellence Framework and were rated a top 50 university for research power in the most recent national assessment (REF 2014). An impressive 96.1% of our students go into work or further study within six months of graduating, according to the Higher Education Statistics Agency (July 2017).
At Hull, we are incredibly ambitious about our research agenda and we are building on solid foundations to further develop our strengths and impact. Our seven research institutes work tirelessly to find solutions to some of the biggest challenges facing the world today.
The Institutes are a hub; bringing together expertise from all corners of the university. They form a focus point where our researchers work with key partners and stakeholders to deliver research that benefits everyone, and shapes and informs future policy.
The University of Hull is among the top 20% of the world’s universities when it comes to international outlook, according to the Times Higher Education World University Rankings 2018.
Our beautiful campus is currently home to more than 1,300 international students from over 100 countries, adding to our well-established reputation as a diverse and friendly global institution.
As well as providing academic excellence in a number of high ranking subject areas and research, the student experience whilst on campus is an important focus at the University of Hull. Over recent years, we have invested £200 million on a world-class library, a superb health campus, a state-of-the-art concert hall, on-campus student accommodation and new sports facilities.
You will find everything you need to study, live and socialise – from versatile work spaces to an award-winning careers service – all on one site. And with free high-speed WiFi across campus, it’s easy to stay in touch with your family and friends back home.
Named as the UK City of Culture for 2017, Hull has become one of the UK’s most talked about cities. Recently, massive new investment has transformed the city and much of the surrounding areas, so much so that Hull was named as one of the top 10 cities in the world to visit in 2016 (Rough Guides).
Hull is also one of Britain’s best value cities – we are number one for low cost student housing according to Student.com’s 2017 Global Student Accommodation Indicator.
Our location – roughly halfway between London and Edinburgh – puts us within striking distance of most parts of the UK. Served by Humberside Airport and Hull Paragon Railway Station, we are a well connected city, offering daily flights to mainland Europe and direct train journeys to London (2.5hrs) and Manchester (2hrs).
