The University of Hull
It's been 90 years since we first opened our doors to students. We've since earned our reputation of providing high-quality education and producing life-changing research.
We're 'the friendly university' that puts students at the heart of everything we do. And we're among the UK's top 10 universities for graduate employability (Destination of Leavers from Higher Education, 2015).
The University has particular research expertise in social justice, environmental technologies and maritime history. Our work in healthcare, 3D visualization and nanotechnology is also widely respected. In research terms, we're perhaps best known for developing liquid-crystal technology. For that breakthrough, we received the Queen’s Award for Technological Achievement.
In the 2014 national Research Excellence Framework (REF), 62% of our research was judged to be internationally excellent.
