Student life & support
Will this work for me?
Will I have enough time to study?
We offer different study options to suit all lifestyles. If you can't commit to a full-time course, one of our part-time programmes may be more suitable.
For a standard, full-time undergraduate degree you're expected to study for 1,200 hours per year. That's based on 200 hours per 20 credit module. And it includes scheduled hours, time spent on placement and independent study. How this time is divided among each of these varies each year and depends on the course and modules you study.
Will I be surrounded by 18 year olds?
Our courses attract students of all ages. While a lot of our courses do attract students who have just finished their A Levels, almost 30% of our student population are mature students.
What kind of support is available?
There's a reason so many of our students go on to do extraordinary things. Because at Hull, you matter - no matter where you've come from. We don't just see your grades, we see your potential.
Nothing should get in the way of reaching your personal best. With our team of academics, advisers and experts by your side, there's no stopping you. We won't meddle, we won't pry, we won't preach. But we will do everything we can to help. Whether you're struggling with money, your health or your studies, or you need pointing in the right career direction, you only have to ask.
