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 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. In the 2014 national Research Excellence Framework (REF), 62% of research at Hull was judged to be internationally excellent.
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.
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.
