You can find out more about the University of Hull and our courses through our visits to your country, or speak to one of our authorised agents based in your country, or get in touch with us - we'd love to hear from you!


Apply for your course

See the course information for details of how to apply.


Accept your offer

Provide any relevant documents to us to meet the conditions detailed in your offer, and pay your tuition fee deposit (if applicable - see your offer letter).

You will need your CAS for your visa application. We will send you your CAS via email at the earliest three months before your course start date.

The CAS will include details of tuition fees already paid or scholarships, so be sure to check it is correct. It will also include details of supporting documents to include in your visa application.


Apply for a visa

Check if you need a visa on the UK Government website.

We're here to help you with your application and supporting documents - see our step-by-step guide to applying for a visa and get in touch with our immigration team for support with your application.

Our agents in your country also support visa applications, even if you have not applied through them, and most often free of charge.


Apply for accommodation and pay tuition fees

We reserve a number of rooms for English language students at The Lawns and in our University-owned and Partnership student houses. We will email you a link to apply online.

In the event of demand exceeding supply, students will be directed to alternative accommodation within the private sector.
