    The University of Hull was formed in 1927, making us the 14th oldest university in England. With a proud history of academic excellence and creating and inspiring life-changing research, we have a tradition of providing opportunity for all, in a friendly student city.

    We are also the only university to be an Official Partner of Team GB. This exclusive six-year partnership will benefit our students presenting opportunities for joint research and enterprise projects, and career-boosting opportunities.


    Teaching Excellence

    At Hull you can learn from academics at the forefront of their field and be part of a vibrant teaching and research community, with many of our programmes enhancing your career potential through incorporated professional and employability skills modules. Hull has also earned a silver award in the Government’s 2018 Teaching Excellence Framework, which recognises excellence in teaching and learning in UK universities and colleges, and an impressive 97.9% of our international students go into work or further study within six months of graduating (HESA 2018).


    Research with Impact

    We care about making a difference and research that can make a real impact on people’s lives. Hull has featured twice in Universities UK's list of ‘100 discoveries by British Universities which changed the world’ with our bone density scanner and the globally renowned breakthrough in LCD technology. Today we’re in the top 50 UK universities for research power (REF 2014) with a research agenda tackling some of the largest global issues, from health to habitats, food to flooding and supply chains to slavery. Our research institutes also work tirelessly to find solutions to some of the biggest challenges currently facing our world.

    In November 2019 Hull also announced its ambition to become Carbon Neutral by 2027, which marks the University's 100 year anniversary. Hull’s vision is to shape a fairer, brighter carbon neutral future for all. Hull plans to deliver on this by preparing outstanding graduates to help solve critical, complex, global challenges and thought provoking, game changing research that is advancing knowledge to inform policy and practice.


    Student Support

    We want our students to reach their full potential, so we offer many kinds of support to our students throughout their studies.

    Each student is allocated a Personal Supervisor to meet with throughout the year – they give academic advice and are a student’s first point of contact for feedback and guidance.
