University of Hull open evening focuses on postgraduate study

Book now for our postgraduate open evening on Wednesday 27 February 2019. 

From business to biomedical sciences, international law to leadership in health and social care – the next open evening at the University will provide insight into the different course options at postgraduate level.

Martina Novotna, Postgraduate Admissions Manager at the University of Hull, said: “We realise that it can be difficult to decide whether it is the right time to commit to further study. We want to invite anyone who is considering it as an option – to come along to our open evening on Wednesday 27 February.

“There will be plenty of people asking themselves: “Is it for me? Is the timing right? Will it boost my career prospects? What’s the difference between a taught masters programme and a PhD? Can I afford to study again full-time?

“It is our sincere hope that by attending the open evening we will be able to help prospective students come to an informed decision. One that will make them feel confident about their future, and happy to commit to whatever path they choose.”

The postgraduate open evening will give prospective students the chance to explore how a postgraduate qualification will help them stand out in their chosen area of expertise, deepening their understanding of their subject and enhancing their career opportunities.

They will be able to investigate the advantages of further study at Hull, where they will:

  • Benefit from the University’s connections with industry, government, research bodies, including our recently-announced six-year partnership with Team GB.
  • Learn relevant, transferable employability skills (including information technology and communication skills) as part of the programme – enhancing your specialist knowledge
  • Receive careers advice and opportunities such as CV workshops, mock interviews from our careers and employability service that is nationally recognised for its excellence
  • Access valuable networking – for example, through our online platform which puts students in touch with our 85,000 strong global alumni network
  • Be able to make friends and fit right in – our inclusive and diverse campus is home to around 16,000 students from more than 100 countries. 


“At Hull, you will find a friendly environment, cheaper prices compared to other cities, with the best library you can imagine."

Noureldin Noureldin, MSc Marketing Management, University of Hull

Noureldin Noureldin, who chose Hull to study for a Masters in Marketing Management, said:

“At Hull, you will find a friendly environment, cheaper prices compared to other cities, with the best library you can imagine.

“There is a real sense of community here. It feels different to other universities. Everything is on one campus – and it’s really friendly.

“Although the University is the 14th oldest in England – and has a great sense of heritage – there has also been huge investment in our library, health campus, arts venue and sports facilities so you really have both modern and traditional – all in one place.”

The opening evening in the Brynmor Jones Library on Wednesday 27 February will offer prospective students and their families the chance to  tour our campus, explore our range of courses, meet tutors and students, ask questions, find out more about accommodation, how to apply and the different funding options, including scholarships and the newly-introduced postgraduate loan.

The University of Hull has a silver award in the 2017 Teaching Excellence Framework and is in the top 50* UK institutions for research power.
