The University of Hull

Established in 1927, the University of Hull encompasses world-class teaching, research, impressive facilities, and a strong support network for more than 16,000 students.

Independent surveys have repeatedly shown that our undergraduates are some of the most satisfied students in the UK, who enjoy the sense of community on our attractive 125-acre campus. We were awarded 5 stars for teaching, employability and facilities by world university ranking experts QS. And the most recent Research Excellence Framework named us among the UK’s top 50 universities for research power.

Hull University Business School

Hull University Business School offers a wealth of opportunities to pursue undergraduate and postgraduate study and research, all designed to enhance your professional or academic development. Our degrees all build a strong understanding of the complexities of the global business environment to help you develop into a responsible, resourceful business leader.

Recognition from two of the leading global accreditation systems for business schools (AACSB and AMBA) has confirmed our status as a leading business school. AACSB accreditation is an internationally recognised accreditation specialised for business schools, and is held by less than 5% of the world’s 13,000 business programmes. This places us in a select group of UK business schools, assures students of our commitment to providing an outstanding experience and further enhances the value of their degree in the global employment market. In the most recent Research Excellence Framework (REF), a nationwide assessment of research at universities published in December 2014, Hull University Business School was placed 37th among 101 UK business schools for research power (research quality x number of staff submitted).
