Shaping the future, going beyond
University of Hull
Founded in 1927, the University of Hull is one of the most prestigious universities in England. Situated in the historic city of Kingston upon Hull, the University has been named fourth best University in Yorkshire by the Times and Sunday Times Good University Guide. It was awarded silver for teaching excellence in 2018 in the UK. It now has approximately 16,000 students, 22% of whom are reading for a higher degree.
The high quality of the University's research has been recognised by a wide range of funding organisations, such as The Research Councils, BP International, British Telecom, the Ministry of Defence, the Department of Health and Social Security and British Aerospace. The University had two entries in Universities UK's list of 100 discoveries by British Universities which changed the world - the bone density scanner and globally renowned breakthrough in LCD technology. It is not surprised that it has been named in the top 50 UK institutions for research power by the Times Higher Education.
Many of the activities at Hull bring together the pure and applied aspects of research and Hull has good working relationships with industry, commerce and community services. Links with industry have always been strong but these have significantly grown since the creation of an on-campus Science Park and the establishment of the Business School.
There are many reasons why people choose Hull for postgraduate studies. It has excellent scholars with international reputations and so offers high-quality teaching, supervision and advice in their specialisms. Much of Hull's current research and advanced teaching is interdisciplinary and a major proportion is undertaken in collaboration with commerce and industry. In the UK’s National Student Survey 2020, over a dozen subjects at the University ranked in the top 10 in the UK for overall student satisfaction. The University is highly satisfied by their students and the students have shown a high level of engagement to their university life.
The University of Hull is very much committed to advanced and postgraduate work. Postgraduates constitute a vital and growing part of the University. The choice of topics for advanced study and research is wide. The highly successful University of Hull MBA is an example of a programme that has the excellent reputation and has become truly international in nature.
