Applicant Travel Grant

The University of Hull Applicant Experience Day and Applicant Visit Travel Grant is offered as part of our commitment to ensuring that all applicants who hold an offer with the University and who wish to attend one of our Applicant Visits are able to do so, therefore enabling them to make an informed decision on where they wish to study.

Eligible applicants must hold an offer to study at the University, reside in the UK, and live 20 miles or further from the University in order to receive the grant.

The University of Hull Applicant Experience Day and Applicant Visit Travel Grant award amount is dependent upon the distance travelled to the University and is calculated by the University of Hull. The amount awarded will be based on the shortest route from the home address listed on the applicant's UCAS application, to the University Cottingham Road campus, postcode HU6 7RX, and will be calculated at the following rates;

Distance from the UniversityGrant
Less than 20 miles £0
20-69 miles £30
70-149 miles £50
150 miles or more £100

The Travel Grant will be paid in cash, must be collected by 1 pm on an Applicant Experience Day and by 4 pm on an Applicant Visit. Please note, the Travel Grant cannot be awarded retrospectively or claimed more than once.

Applicants must bring a form of ID in order to collect the Travel Grant. Acceptable forms of ID include a bank card, student card, driving licence or passport. Parents, guardians or accompanying guests may collect the grant on behalf of applicants after they have registered at the Arrival Point on production of the applicant's ID.
