    • About Hull

      Hull is one of the country’s biggest ports, with some striking seaside imagery to be had, so bring your Polaroid and an appetite for fish and chips.

      The University has a campus in Hull and one in the classic seaside resort of Scarborough, with the artier courses mainly catered for in the latter. The hull campus is only a mile or two walk from the busy city centre, and is an amiable scene of mainly non-descript buildings in the middle of greenery and trees. 

      The uni is recognised for its political prowess, with ample number of alumni making their way to the House of Commons. Whilst not one of the big hitting research institutes, Hull received an admirable two places in the Eureka UK list of ‘100 discoveries and developments in UK universities that have changed the world'. As a port the city has seen its share of sailor shenanigans, and the masses of pubs and bars (including the Bev Road Run) see that students take full advantage of their freedom. Cheap beer and cheap living give Hull students an appreciative perspective of the city, and it’s a love affair that lasts long after graduation.
