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, around 2,500 employees, including more than 1,000 academic staff.
Hull has a 97.9% percent graduate employability rate for international students (HESA 2018), which can be attributed to its excellent award-winning careers support (AGCAS 2018) 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 between January 2017 to December 2020, 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 attracted about 15,000 people and over 100+ bands in 2022.
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 and shopping centres.
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.
