Open Day at the University of Hull


School leavers to confirm university places as Hull set for Results Day

Results Day 2020: Discover everything University of Hull has to offer through Clearing

For school and college leavers hoping to start at university this September, the wait is almost over.

Sixth-form and college pupils in Hull and across the region will this week receive their A-Level and BTEC results.

In a remarkable year of change, many pupils will secure their university places ahead of the start of the new academic year next month.

At the University of Hull, the stage is set for a busy Results Day on Thursday, August 13, as it prepares to confirm student offers and welcome applicants through clearing.

Anja Hazebroek, Director of Student Recruitment and Marketing at the University, said: “Results Day, as with every year, promises to be a busy but exciting day for the University of Hull.

“We know students go through all range of emotions when receiving their A-Level and BTEC results, but rest assured, we have a dedicated team ready to offer advice and support, whatever the outcome.

“As we look ahead to September, and welcoming both new and returning faces to Hull, we are excited to showcase everything this University has to offer.”

When the COVID-19 pandemic sent the UK into lockdown in March, the University of Hull moved quickly to an online, remote delivery of teaching.

Since then, prospective Hull students have taken part in Virtual Open Days, toured the campus online, and had the chance to speak to course tutors and current students about everything the University has to offer.

On Results Day itself, a dedicated team at the University will man call centres both on the Hull campus, and at the Aura Innovation Centre in Hessle.

For those faced with clearing, call handlers will also showcase the range of courses on offer at Hull, and the complete student experience which accompanies it.

I could not recommend the University of Hull highly enough and I look back on my A-Level results day positively now because I know it is the day my life changed for the better.

Jess Phillips is a dual languages student at the University of Hull, who faced the same difficult situation experienced by so many on A-Level results day.

After missing out on the grades she hoped for, and being rejected from both her firm and insurance choice universities, Jess admitted to feeling “devastated.”

After ringing several universities through clearing, she eventually settled on Hull – a choice which turned out to be “the best decision of her life.”

Jess said: “When I made the call to the Clearing helpline, I was quickly transferred to the admissions tutor for my faculty who talked through my options with the grades I had received and she reassured me that my grades were good, and put me at ease straight away.

“I could not recommend the University of Hull highly enough and I look back on my A-Level results day positively now because I know it is the day my life changed for the better.

“Do not let the grades you receive define you and do not let them limit you, there are always options. Hull was one of those for me and I love it here.”

The University of Hull recently announced its plans for a phased return to campus, starting in September.

Adopting a blended learning approach, teaching will take place both online and in-person, ensuring students receive the highest standard of learning while also enjoying the University’s innovative approach to events, socialising and meeting new people.

It comes as the University remains committed to delivering a fulfilling, fun and safe experience for both new and returning students in September.

Ms Hazebroek said: “Our beautiful and historic campus offers students a friendly and relaxed environment in which to both study and socialise.

“In recent years, the University has invested in its campus to enhance the student experience. This includes our new on-campus accommodation, Westfield Court and The Courtyard, a £16m upgrade of our sports centre and facilities, our £28m health campus and £9.5m revamp of Middleton Hall, creating one of the region’s top venues.

“We firmly believe there has never been a better time to choose Hull.”
