England’s 14th oldest university, the University of Hull, is an ambitious institution that strives to inspire future world-changing leaders.
Hull’s motto, Lampada Ferens, means ‘carrying the light of learning,’ and the university is proud to have been making a global impact and challenging the way people think for 90 years.
Originally established as University College Hull in 1927, today the university has a community of over 16,000 students, with over 2,500 international students from more than 100 countries.
Hull was awarded silver status in the Teaching Excellence Framework 2018. It has a 97.9% percent graduate employability rate for international students (HESA 2018), which can be attributed to its excellent career support, where students have access to countless invaluable resources.
Hull, or Kingston upon Hull, is a very student-friendly and affordable city. It was UK City of Culture in 2017 and was placed in the Guardian’s Hot List of places to visit in the same year. Rough Guides even named Hull as one of the top ten cities to visit in the world in 2016.
On the east coast of England near stunning countryside and coastlines, the city of Hull has inspired great names such as JRR Tolkien and Luke Campbell. Students will have plenty to enjoy in the surrounding area, such as concert venues, art galleries, museums, cinemas, shopping centres and even a trampoline park.
A direct train to London takes under three hours and Birmingham is just two and a half hours away. York and Leeds can both be reached in an hour and the seaside resorts of Bridlington, Scarborough and Whitby are also nearby.
