University of Hull
Welcome to University of Hull
The University of Hull first opened its doors to students in 1927, making us the 14th-oldest university in England. And over the last 88 years, we’ve earned our reputation as one of Britain’s finest teaching universities, a source of landmark research and a proving ground for fresh talent.
From our well-equipped, attractive campus, we’ve produced thousands of dedicated, dynamic graduates who have gone on to resounding success in their careers: from an Oscar-winning film director to the CEO of Coca-Cola, and from the former Deputy Prime Minister to the guitarist in Foals. A degree from Hull is a hallmark of quality that makes employers sit up and take notice: the most recent statistics show that 95% of our graduates are in work or further study within six months of leaving us.
And it's not just our sought-after students that have brought us international esteem. Our track record of life-changing research encompasses the ground-breaking development of LCD technology (including the screen you’re reading this on right now). And from renewable energy to ethics and social justice, our research continues to expand into new and stimulating areas.
