It's been pretty good. There's been bumps in the road along the way, but putting that aside, it's been great fun. Mainly the social side and making new friends, which I think most people would say. Also expanding on my interest for my subject too has been really rewarding for me, and I am looking forward to continuing this and starting to specialise in certain areas.
At current, not much, however I am just finishing 1st year. They do hold job fairs, and later in the course there is the opportunity for work placements.
Most: The variety of content, brand new and challenging content, being assessed in various ways, enthusiasm from the lecturers and they are very friendly! Good contact hours. Least: Some content can be a bit dry, although that is to be expected as you are taught a large variety in first year, both physical and human, there's quite a high workload to get used to, some lecturers could be more enthusiastic and engaging. Not many seminars - I'd say add more, so more discussion is going on. I've had about 6 this academic year!
The facilities in the union are fantastic. There's a nightclub that has weekly themed club nights, a bar that's open all week selling food, drink and also does karaoke, a Waterstones, a pizza takeaway, wellbeing/support and a Spar for essentials, hot food and snacks. The Union represent students very well, and are very active on social media.
Very safe. A little expensive but good for what it is. Could be closer to the big shops.
Excellent. Everything I could ever need. Very good sports facilities, a gym, a huge library with 7 floors and an observatory on the 7th floor, plenty of computers (they can be pretty full during the day sometimes but on an evening, it's usually nice and peaceful), and of course the union building which has lots of social spaces and food places. There's also a fair few cafes dotted around campus.
It is very close to essential amenities, such as small chain and independent shops & pubs, and is very close to all university managed accommodation. However, to get to the centre it's a bus ride, and it does get costly so you have to limit how often you visit the centre.
There are loads of societies to choose from, so there's something for everyone! They're excellent for sharing interests, making new friends and having fun!
The lecturers and my AST are very kind and helpful, and reply to emails very quickly. Feedback could be a bit more detailed - sometimes I've had things like 'no', or 'ok' from lecturers. Single words are no good to me! They do try to get to know you as a person though, rather than just treating you like 'a student'. The counselling service is quite good, sometimes you have to wait for an appointment, but the people who work there are lovely and helpful.
If I had to bring it down to 2 words it would be absolutely amazing. Uni of Hull provides anything and everything you need from a university. It's affordable, it's accessible and beautiful. The library is the best part and the professors are the cherry on top of the cake.
The Uni provides support on how to apply and how to present yourself and provides the opportunities in a weekly email which is absolutely the highest of any I've ever studied at
They're inclusive and interactive than just peer to students conversation. I really love that.
Absolutely supportive and much needed.
So much better than my past experiences.
It's not local to Uni but my accommodation is a stone throw away from the centre of Cottingham.
Absolutely amazing. There's wide and a diverse range of societies and sport activities across the campus
Absolutely supportive and amazing when you ask for it.
I'm staying onto do a phd, really love the atmosphere and the environment surrounding the university. Really interesting subjects and teaching opportunities. Excited to keep studying
Yes, they hold regular drop in sessions to help improve skills
Poorly organised but I enjoy the subject matter
Pretty good, well communicated
Yes, 10 minutes to uni and 15 to local lidl
Love the sports team, not been involved in societies
Neither have been that we'll advertised to me
Until now, I can say that this is an amazing experience. I’m from another country so live here and going to this university is one of the best things that had happened to me. I’m enjoying my degree, more than I expected, and lot of people are really nice and friendly, therefore I could say that this probably would be one of my best phase of my whole life.
I like the fact that we have assignments during the course and that the exam is at most 50%. Nevertheless, sometimes have an hour gap between lectures that are kind of annoying
They are doing a great job
It’s really helpful to have the library and many rooms for do meeting with your projects’ groups
Yes, we have a Spar inside of the university and another supermarkets close to the university
They have lot of societies and sports clubs that is even kind of difficult to choose one
I didn’t use them, but I know that we have lot of support if we need it
Seek out support if you need it, there's plenty of places to eat and the surrounding area also has takeaways and shops. We have great facilities and materials available
A lot of support available and a lot of great resources
Overall my uni experience has been very good. I'm on an engaging course that has interested me and helped me towards employment and I have also found many friends and had lots of fun
Job fairs and skills training, course is well geared towards employability as well. A supposedly good careers department as well
Very engaging and varied modules- probably would say I dislike very little about my course
Helped me with my issues in a quick and easy manner
Very good, up to date and easy to use
Most definitely, close to several supermarkets and shops and transport into the centre is good
Fantastic variety- lots of engaged sports societies and several other non-sports societies with lots of events
Feedback could be prompter but is usually very in depth and helpful. Academic Support Tutors are fantastic if you need any help. Haven't used any counselling so couldn't tell you how good it is
It’s been really great. I’ve made lots of friends, joined a society, I’m doing well in my assignments and I’m really looking forward to the next three years here.
There are regular job fairs as well as smaller more subject specific job fairs for students further on in the course
Lecturers are really helpful and provide us with lots of resources. However sometimes the lecturers can be a little lacklustre during lectures
Excellent. There is a brand new gym on campus, as well it is working with Team GB. The Union offers a wide range of services, including welfare and advice centres
Excellent, the accommodation is on campus and it’s just outside of the city centre with really good transport links and there are supermarkets are short walk away.
Fantastic. There is great range of societies.
Welfare at the uni is great (I personally have used it and have been able to access the help I need). We have Academic Support Tutors who we have one to one meetings with and are really help with making sure we’re enjoying the course.
My experience, comparing to my Bachelor (University of Bucharest, Romania) is obviously a good one. But the Uni is very unorganised and the timetable is always a mess. Since my MSc Biochemistry module is in its first year, they didn't manage to include us ( we are 3 people at this module) very well in their academic planning. So, we do what others do, but I cannot see a very clear direction for our academic plan.
At this time, I didn't see the efforts but maybe because I wasn't in the situation. Hull is a city where is very hard to get a part time job, other than Supermarket Assistant and, in Chemistry/Biochemistry field, not many options.
I like very much the fact that the lectures are recorded and if I missed or I to revise a lecture I just listen and watch from home . What I least like is that is very little practical work ( like lab work) because in my field is very important to practice, even if it is a Master Degree.
I think they are very active and they do a good job.
University's facilities are good, comparable with any other average Universities in UK.
The city is not very big so all the necessities are maximum 30 mins of walking far one from another. The University is in a good location and easy to reach.
There are plenty of societies that you can take part. I didn't feel taking part of any because are not on my taste. The sports I want to practice (climbing) is very expensive and there are no discounts for students.
The tutors are very supportive and also the personal.
Good enjoyable lots of new friends. Lots of good places to go. Lots of food. Lots of pubs. Lots of nice people. Good location. A very good experience so far ☺.
A couple of uni employment days
No idea it exists
My overall experience at the university has been great, as long as you use you're voice and speak out when you have concerns, all the staff are accomodating were possible
They have many workshops in place to help all students with all career skills
There is plent of contact hours and additional help when needed. However more interesting labs would be great
There is plent of facilities and representatives at the union, with an open door policy, they always help were they can.
Our university has great facilities, obviously some area could still do with some work on, which they're currently addressing
Absolutely, there is everything you need within walking distance of the university. Obviously I chose to live further away however the university does off housing very close to the university
There is a wide selection of each and if there is something they don't offer they support you in staring a new society
Both are amazing tutors are always there on an academic or personal leave, and they have weekly sessions for walking in counselling
