The University of Hull has been changing the way people think for over 90 years. Founded in 1927 as a ‘centre of light and culture’ for Hull, the University is proud to play a leading role in the educational, social, economic and cultural development of our unique city and region. A strong sense of place remains at the heart of our identity as a civic university with a global perspective tackling world problems, whilst supporting the regeneration of our local region and economy. It is the union between education, research and knowledge exchange, and between the local and the global, which defines us an internationally engaged civic university that puts students and staff at the heart of what we do.
Our research and teaching are designed to inspire thinking and expand horizons, providing excellent academic programmes alongside a fantastic student experience. We are on the road to increasing our research capacity, with the goal of being placed in the top 50 universities for research with a focus on achieving significant increases in research quality and income. At the same time our partnerships with local, national and global organisations are working to address the challenges facing society.
