Getting to Hull

Some people might tell you that Hull is ‘at the end of the line’, but they couldn’t be more wrong. Hull is slap-bang in the centre of the country, roughly halfway between Edinburgh and London. It’s easy to get to by road, rail, sea and air. There’s a direct train service to London that takes less than three hours. Birmingham’s only two and a half hours away, and it’s around an hour to either York or Leeds.

One campus, one community

When you join Hull, you’re a valued member of a tight-knit community where the lecturers know your name. It’s a place where everyone matters. A place for all ages, all background, all walks of life. It’s no coincidence that “friendly” is the word most of their students use to describe Hull.

At Hull, instead of ticking boxes, you’ll find us trying to think outside them. It’s hard to describe but easy to see when you step on campus.

From friendly social spaces to state-of-the-art AI labs, get ready to experience true Northern hospitality at Hull.

How to apply

For most postgraduate courses, you apply online and can track the progress of your application. It’s quick and easy and the team are on hand to help you every step of the way.

We recommend that you apply as soon as possible to avoid disappointment. Some programmes will close for applications for the next intake once they’re full.
