The Hull Experience

Situated in the North-East of England, Hull is a vibrant and ambitious city with a rich history. From its beginnings in the 13th century as Britain's premier east-coast port, to the present day, Hull can consider itself 'The Gateway to Europe',  with passenger ferries and freight carriers travelling daily to and from the Continent. Alongside its redeveloped marina and modern shopping facilities, Hull has an attractive Old Town, with its cobbled streets, traditional pubs and historic buildings. This adds to the character of a city which both looks forward to the future, and acknowledges the past in its many art galleries and museums commemorating, amongst other things, William Wilberforce's battle against slavery.

The main University of Hull Campus is a bus ride away from the city centre and our students immediately find themselves part of a close, welcoming community. Surrounded by many of the University's student residences on adjacent streets, it houses all the main teaching buildings on a single site. Alongside the library, which holds over 1 million volumes, the campus boasts sophisticated science buildings, the language centre, which is one of the largest and best equipped in the United Kingdom, high technology laboratories and lecture theatres all within easy walking distance.
