General Information

The University of Hull is one of the UK’s longest-established institutions of learning. Founded in 1927, it has a proud history of education, innovative research, and contribution to the knowledge economy. The University is committed to social justice and sustainability, and serious about its role in the economic, social and cultural life of its city, region, nation and global partnership.

Throughout its history, the University has welcomed students and staff from around the world. Its teaching and research reflect worldwide knowledge and experience and the importance of international connectivity and collaboration is infused throughout the institution and its activity.

Situated in a city made famous by William Wilberforce, the leading light in the abolition of the international slave trade, the University and the city maintain a focus on social justice.  The University’s Wilberforce Institute conducts research into historic slavery, and is also a world-leader in scholarship on modern-day slavery. And Kingston upon Hull – the city’s full name - is a City of Sanctuary.

Hull is situated on a major estuary, and has historic global trading connections. Its location also provides a focus for world-leading research into estuary management, flood risk, and green energy at the University’s Energy and Environment Institute. 

The University’s research and practice in Logistics and Supply Chain Management is also globally recognised, and also draws strength from its location in a port city. Research, consultancy and postgraduate education focuses on industry practice and global trade.

Our ambitions are bold and challenging – we’ll pursue our vision with a determination to exceed expectations, to contribute ever greater outcomes towards shaping a better world, and to encourage our students to strive for excellence.
