Location

Colloquially known simply as “Hull”, Kingston upon Hull sits approximately 260 miles north of London in England’s East Yorkshire on the River Hull, which flows into the North Sea via the Humber Estuary. While the region has been occupied since the Neolithic, Hull’s recorded history dates back to the 12th century. Originally named Wyke upon Hull, its location proved attractive to monks seeking to export wool. The city was renamed King’s town upon Hull (from which Kingston upon Hull is derived) by Edward I Longshanks in the 13th century.  William Wilberforce, England’s famous abolitionist Member of Parliament, hailed from Hull. Trade has been integral to Hull’s economy since its founding, and it remains an important port. Hull also hosts the annual Humber Mouth Literature Festival (November), the Hull Fair (October) and the Freedom Festival (September), an arts and live music fair. Hull has been named the 2017 UK City of Culture.

Originally founded in 1927 as a constituent college of the University of London, the University of Hull received its Royal Charter and independent university status in 1954. The campus lies approximately 15 minutes by bus from the Hull city center. Known around the UK as the “friendly university”, the University of Hull has strong reputations in both teaching and research.

Finding Classes

*In the UK, “course” typically refers to a degree program, while “module” refers to an individual class. When searching for modules, be sure to select the proper session (academic year) and the proper location (Hull campus). Students may wish to look first at the module list in the course structure of a given program and search by module number. See departmental websites for course structures. Students should be mindful that some modules may run the entire academic year, and it is impossible to take such modules if one studies for only one semester. Additionally, some individual modules may be unavailable to exchange students.
