i think that in general lancasterhas the best reputation, but for psychology hull is particularly stong. in you're second year at hull if you're interested in clinical psychology you can apply to do the docotate course straight after you're degree whereas at other uni's you have to do at least 3 years work experience before going on to it. i only found that out after i'd put down my ucas choices though, but it's worth a thought if you are interested in clinical psychology

Hull and Lancaster are pretty much par when it comes to overall uni reputation although according to other posters Hull is better for Psychology.

I've never been to the universities in Hull or Lancaster, but I'm not sure I'd agree with that statement. Lancaster is generally rated just outside the top 20 in most league tables and has excellent research assessment results in many subjects. Hull isn't as highly rated overall and the city is pretty dull. I have no idea about reputation for Psychology though.

I just checked the latest *league tables* (ahem!) and Hull was like equal 37 with Newcastle and Lancaster was 36 overall.

Have either of Maddock or Rah ever been to Hull?

The university is coming on in leaps and bounds and although the town was bombed to bits by the Luftwaffe the town is gradually improving after a load of mad 60's and 70's designers and architects made a mess of it.

The uni has a good reputation that is getting better and the campus is nice despite being a 1960's build.

We have "the deep" the world only submarium (whatever one of those is) and both the Rugby and Football teams are going great guns.

If you go out towards the West of the city you could easily be in any part of Surrey or Essex.

Infact...once you are over the fact that you are in Hull its not so bad at all.

A friend of mine ended up coming to Hull after bombing out on her first choice. She is now in her third year and says that if she knew what she knew now she may have even made it first choice.

Oh, and because of our location many people don't want to come here so it means you can often get a good offer and entry requirements are generally lower then some of the other places of a similair standard.

Once you are over the fact that you are "in Hull" you may realise that its actually not such a bad place, certainly no worse than Manchester or Liverpool in terms of the overall state of affairs.

Which league tables did you check? I haven't seen Lancaster that low in any of them. (Excluding the Employment one included below!)

I didn't realise that table had all of them in... yep, looks to me to like Lancater beats Hull. Not that I'm saying that Hull is bad, but overall, Lancaster beats it.

Deary me, I've lived near Hull all my life, and it's a rubbish "city", with a reasonable uni! Random facts: it has the largest council estate in Europe, worst schools in the country, highest teenage pregnancy rate in the country... A-mayzing. I think I'll toodle off to York.

Two of those facts are wrong, we are no longer bottom of the education secondary schools league table and I think we have improved on the teenage pregnancy front too!
