University of Hull

University Profile

The University of Hull will give you the teaching facilities, opportunities, ambition and inspiration to succeed. The University’s inclusive and diverse campus is home to around 16,000 students from around 100 countries.

The 14th-oldest university in England, you’ll benefit from all the long-established links and expertise they’ve developed.

The University has four faculties:

  • Faculty of Arts, Culture and Education
  • Faculty of Health Sciences (including Hull York Medical School)
  • Faculty of Science and Engineering
  • Faculty of Business, Law and Politics


The campus itself has a mix of traditional ivy-covered buildings and shiny new multimillion-pound labs, library and lecture theatres.

The University was named in the top 50 UK institutions for research power by the Times Higher Education, based on the most recent Research Excellence Framework 2014.

That matters because it means you’ll be taught by experts in your chosen field. The same people who are doing the research, writing the textbooks, authoring academic papers, attracting funding, speaking at conferences, collaborating with industry, contributing to the national press and discussing their subject on radio or TV. Every time you listen to one of their lectures, pick their brains in a tutorial or plug yourself into their network of contacts, you’ll be getting a major boost to your own prospects.

The University of Hull has also appeared twice in Universities UK’s list of ‘100 discoveries by British universities that have changed the world’. This was in recognition of their globally renowned breakthrough in liquid crystal displays, facilitating the technology for screens on your phones, TVs and laptops, and for their pioneering work on a bone density scanner for the earlier detection of osteoporosis.

The University was awarded Silver in the 2018 Teaching Excellence Framework – a Government initiative to recognise excellence in teaching and learning. One of the reasons was the very high level of student satisfaction with teaching and academic support here, which tends to lead to excellent student outcomes.

Being able to study, live, eat, shop, play and relax on campus makes Hull a great place to be a student. The University’s red brick campus is based in the leafy Avenues area, home to some of Hull’s best cafes, bars and independent shops. Only a short bus ride away are the major high street stores, cinemas and tourist attractions of Hull city centre – also close by is the KC Stadium, home to Hull City AFC football club and top flight rugby league team Hull FC.
