University of Hull

United Kingdom


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 14,500 students, with over 1,400 international students from nearly 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.

In November 2019 the university 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. The university 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.

Hull, or Kingston upon Hull, is a very student-friendly and affordable city. It was UK City of Culture in 2017, which attracted over 5.3m audience visits with events ranging from major touring exhibitions of artworks by the likes of Picasso and Michelangelo, debates, drama, to classical concerts by renowned musicians. Hull is vibrant city to live in with the annual Freedom Festival and the Humber Street Sesh, which attracts 30,000+ people and over 200 bands.

On the east coast of England near stunning countryside and coastlines, the city of Hull has inspired great names such as JRR Tolkien and Hull-born Olympian 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 Manchester or 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.
