Overview

The University of Hull performs consistently well in the major student surveys and launches its graduates into dynamic, rewarding careers. We’re a top 20 university for graduate employability, top 10 for student satisfaction and our single-site campus has everything you need including a superb Students’ Union.

Our high-quality teaching is delivered in a supportive learning environment with an authentic community feel. 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. We empower our students to enter today’s competitive job market and 95% of our graduates get into work or further study within six months of leaving according to the latest figures from the Higher Education Statistics Agency.

We are continually investing in our unique and attractive campus which successfully marries historic and modern architecture. A £98m campus development programme is underway and includes a remodeling of the Middleton Hall auditorium into a world-scale events space, a Health Campus and new on-site student residencies which will add to our already extensive suite of University-managed accommodation that guarantees all first years a place to call home.

Our world-class Brynmor Jones Library has recently undergone a £28million refurbishment creating a learning environment perfectly equipped for 21st century study. Newly refurbished state-of-the-art music facilities including industry standard recording studios and the School of Drama has some of the best-equipped performance and production facilities of any university in Europe. HIVE, part of the Computer Science department, provides the opportunity to learn in cutting-edge 3D visualization technology.

We pride ourselves on our outstanding student experience. Our award-winning Students' Union has over 150 sports clubs and societies available to join plus our very own on-campus nightclub, Asylum. The University’s student body of over 20,000 has repeatedly voted us in the top ten satisfaction (National Student Survey) and we are confident that everyone who chooses the University of Hull will find themselves part of a true community.

This sense of community is representative of the city itself and Hull is famed for its friendly and welcoming attitude. Plus with Hull being the UK’s City of Culture in 2017, our students will be a part of a vibrant city that has committed to 365 days of world-class arts and culture. There’ll be plenty of chances to join the celebrations, volunteer behind the scenes, and take advantage of unique and unmissable CV-boosting opportunities  in the run up to and beyond Hull’s cultural showcase year. 

As a research-led University, we have a rich heritage, academic experience and have been changing the world since 1927. We’re a top-50 UK institution for research power (Research Excellence Framework (REF) 2014) and our academic expertise impacts the world we live in. For research impact our Geography and Environmental Studies research is ranked third in the UK and Computer Science research is joint fifth in the UK (REF).
