About us

The University of Hull has a range of courses to support those aspiring to work, or currently working in, the Energy and Renewables Sector. With courses at undergraduate level and masters level, in areas fom Business Management and Supply Chain Management through to Mechanical or Chemical Engineering, the possibilities are endless.

Employment prospects for engineering graduates continue to be excellent, and many receive several firm offers of employment before graduating. A report from industry body EngineeringUK highlighted a current annual shortfall of 55,000 skilled workers within the engineering sector.

The Humber region is rapidly emerging as the ‘Energy Estuary’ and 29% of all enterprises are engineering-related, with an overall turnover of £61 billion. This has created a range of challenging and rewarding positions for talented engineering graduates.

The expertise you gain as an engineering graduate – your mathematical abilities, problem-solving skills, capacity to understand innovative concepts and experience of working in teams – are much in demand in all areas of engineering and this means that starting salaries and average earnings are reflected as a result.

You will also find that your engineering degree makes you highly sought-after and much in demand by leading companies, particularly in the global market place; your engineering degree can therefore lead to a career anywhere in the world.

  • Additional Information

    The University of Hull has been changing the way people think for 90 years. Our motto, Lampada Ferens, translates as ‘carrying the light of learning’, and over the years, we’ve shared that light with thousands of people from across the world.

    As England’s 14th-oldest university, we have a proud heritage of academic excellence, and a history of creating and inspiring life-changing research. And we have no plans to stop helping to build a better world.

    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.

    Lead by Director of Estates, Stephen Dale, and with its own dedicated and protected budget, the Energy and Environmental Team ensures that the University operates as sustainably as possible. This is one of the four key pillars of the University's Strategic Plan (2016–2020). 


  • Activities

    Outside the labs and lecture theatres, there’s plenty of space to unwind – from our bars, coffee shops, gardens and plazas to the award-winning on-campus nightclub, Asylum, which is home to live music and legendary events. There are also more than 150 societies, sports teams and leagues to join at the University.



  • Features

    We’re committed to providing our students with top-class facilities and an ideal environment in which to live and learn, which is why we’re undergoing a £200-million project to dramatically improve our buildings and facilities.

    Our new luxury student accommodation, The Courtyard, is now open, with an even bigger, £130-million accommodation complex coming on our west campus soon. Our £28-million health campus, spearheaded by the state-of-the-art Allam Medical Building, opened last September. And we’ve also spent £9.5 million on turning Middleton Hall into one of the region’s best performance venues and cinemas.

    We guarantee rooms for new full-time unaccompanied students – with free WiFi, plus utility bills and insurance included in the rent.

    Choose from halls of residence; shared houses and flats; on campus or off campus; catered or self-catered; big budget or small. There’s something to suit everyone – check out our accommodation.

    If you’re from the UK or the EU and you achieve 120 UCAS points or higher from three A levels or equivalent, you may be eligible for a University of Hull Merit Scholarship of £2,000 (terms and conditions apply) to help with living costs. And you don’t even have to apply for it – we’ll award it to you automatically. Students at Hull receive the most money in the country through scholarships - you could be one of them.

    Your social hub at the University. Whether you just want to grab a bite to eat between lectures or are looking for somewhere to unwind with mates into the early hours, our student's union has you covered. As well as four eateries, it's home to the award winning Asylum nightclub, which has hosted gigs by everyone from The Pigeon Detectives and Tinchy Stryder to Aqua and S Club. And stress-busting bunny cuddling sessions too. Oh yes.

    Here at Hull we know that being connected everywhere, anywhere is what you need.  There are more than 1,100 open-access computers and 1,600 study spaces around the University for you to use.  With our free high speed WiFi network it turns the entire campus into a virtual classroom. That’s a lot of wireless benefitting every hall, house and flat run by the University.

How to find us

Our Address is:

University of Hull
Cottingham Road

Never been to Hull before? That’s okay, there’s a first time for everything! Hull – or Kingston upon Hull, if you want to give us our full, proper name – is located on the northern shore of the Humber Estuary, just off the east coast of England.

We’re situated within the East Riding of Yorkshire, which means that our bustling city is a stone’s throw from some of the country’s most glorious countryside as well as expansive coastlines – the best of all worlds.

And one of the other great things about Hull’s location is that, on average, we see more sun and less rain than most other areas this far north in the UK, and we’re warmer, too. So it’s true what they say – it’s never dull in Hull.

Some people will tell you that Hull is at ‘the end of the line’, but that couldn’t be further from the truth. Not only is the city itself easily accessible by road, rail, sea and air, our transport links mean that Hull can be just the start of your journey, not the end.

  • By Rail

    There’s a direct train service to London that will have you there in under 3 hours – handy for trips home, or if you just fancy exploring the capital. Birmingham is just 2.5 hours away, and it’ll only take you around an hour to get to either York or Leeds. Fancy a trip to the beach? Popular seaside town Bridlington is close by, so you can go from city to sand in just 30 minutes.

    Or, want to go slightly further afield? There are daily ferry crossings from Hull to both Belgium and the Netherlands, and Humberside Airport can take you to destinations right across Europe and – via Schiphol – worldwide.
