Overview

The University of Hull was formed in 1927, making us the 14th oldest university in England. With a proud history of academic excellence and of creating and inspiring life-changing research, we offer the perfect combination of heritage and high technology, setting us apart from most other universities.

Hull was named the UK’s most affordable student city in the Natwest 2018 Student Living Index, and our single-site campus contains everything you need. We’ve invested £200 million on new facilities including a world-class library, a superb health campus, a state-of-the-art concert hall, on-campus student accommodation and new sports facilities.

Teaching Excellence

We earned a silver award in the Government’s Teaching Excellence Framework which recognises excellence in teaching and learning in UK universities and colleges, and we specialise in a wide range of high-quality undergraduate and postgraduate courses.

Furthermore, an impressive 97.9% of our international students go into work or further study within six months of graduating, according to the Higher Education Statistics Agency.

Research

At Hull, we are incredibly ambitious about our research agenda. We take on the big global challenges – from health to habitats, from food to flooding and from supply chains to slavery. Our seven research 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.

Scholarships

The University of Hull is committed to making British postgraduate education more accessible to students from across the world. This year we are delighted to make available 50 International Office Postgraduate Taught Scholarships (each worth £5,000) to students from a variety of countries. Learn more about these scholarships on our website.

Services for International Students

The International Office provides all international students with pre-arrival information about visa applications. International Welcome Week consists of multiple talks and events, designed to help students settle in, get to know the university campus and staff, and set up bank accounts, mobile phone contracts, and other such things.

Once term is fully underway, international students can partake in Go Connect, which aims to form links between British and international students in the region, and join the International Students’ Association.
