"I started my University of Hull journey as a second year direct entry student in the Department of Engineering. Although initially doubtful about the Hull experience, I was gladly proven wrong in my first week. The relaxed ambience of this picturesque city and the amiable staff members made the University of Hull seem like home away from home. What seemed best to me was that you can talk with your lecturers as you would with your colleagues - asking questions was never a concern. The Engineering department has all of its lecture theatres and workshops in the same building, which makes it very convenient for students. Also, the newly refurbished Brynmor Jones Library has millions of books to cater for everyone’s needs and is regularly open 24 hours a day.
"Hull is not just academic, but also fun. The International Office hosts a Culture Festival annually and organises several trips across the UK and Europe. There are also over a hundred societies and sports clubs to choose from and the city has a vibrant nightlife. The Careers Service is there to help you find jobs, and job adverts are updated on a regular basis on their website. Additionally, I was a student ambassador for two years and have worked for many events. These help you to gain valuable work experience as well as building your CV.
"The University of Hull has laid a solid foundation for me and enhanced my enthusiasm. A world-class degree from this reputable university will definitely help me towards my future endeavours."
"During my MSc programme (Marketing and Communications Management) at the University, I had the opportunity to meet students with very distinctive social/cultural backgrounds from around the world (e.g. China, Africa and Europe). Channelling all these diverse cultural backgrounds through designing modules in an innovative way has offered a distinctive opportunity for us to develop the skills that are required to survive in this challenging business world.
"After completing my MSc from the University of Hull, I decided to further enhance my knowledge by pursuing a PhD. The vibrant learning atmosphere, exceptional research facilities, expertise of academics and novelty within the department drew me back here for my PhD.
"From the start of my PhD, my supervisor has been a constant source of motivation. The University of Hull always emphasises the relationship between a student and his/her supervisor as the key to a successful PhD.
"Being a PhD student is different from being an undergraduate/postgraduate because we spend most of our time studying independently with the guidance of a supervisor, although we are required to attend classes to complete the minimum credits of research training.
"The University of Hull can offer a perfect opportunity with its dynamic research culture, rich library and other modern facilities."
"I thought that life at the University of Hull would be very challenging for me, but the Student's Union and the International Office have made it easier. Hull is a nice city and the University, which is 10 minute drive from the city centre, has beautiful surroundings and a peaceful environment.
"The University has around 2000 international students, from different nationalities, studying on many of the 470 different courses. Around a million books can be found within the Brynmor Jones Library. I have learned lot of things here at Hull and I believe this University will teach me many more things in the future."
