Program Description:

University


Since its opening in 1928, the University of Hull has grown to approximately 16,300 students. Situated in the leafy residential suburb of Newland, the University’s Hull campus is one of the most attractive academic sites in the country. Its collection of neo-Georgian, Edwardian, and modernist buildings house cutting-edge teaching and research facilities in a traditional collegiate environment.

The nine-storey Brynmor Jones Library anchors the centre of the campus, while the students’ union building is the hub of social activity. Right on campus there are numerous cafes, coffee shops, and restaurants; the Sports and Fitness Centre plus the playing fields and Astroturf pitches; a well-stocked shop and a bookstore; even an art gallery and a hairdresser. In fact, the 2012 Times Higher Education Student Experience Survey scored University of Hull in the country’s top ten for on-campus shops and amenities.

Location


Hull is a vibrant riverside city that's had a strong maritime heritage since its founding in 1299. The 10th largest city in England, Hull offers a fascinating, dynamic mix of the historic and new, with plenty of entertainment, options for going out, museums, galleries, and shopping.  Much of the Hull city center is pedestrianized, perfect for exploring this area, which is easily accessible from campus. The city is renowned for its dynamic theatre, poetry, and music scene and for being the birthplace of slavery abolitionist and social reformer William Wilberforce.

Surrounded by beautiful countryside, Hull is in the Yorkshire region, which features open plains, rolling hills and wild, rugged coastline. The nearby North York Moors National Park has almost 2,300 km of hiking and horse trails.

Courses


While attending the University of Hull, you will enroll in 3 classes, each worth 5 U.S. semester hour credits. Some classes may be more or fewer credits. Each Hull credit equals 0.5 U.S. semester hour credits. Each class that you will take at the University of Hull must be approved by UAB via the course articulation process.
 
Course articulation is the process that determines the UAB equivalent for the foreign courses you will take and is a vital component of planning your experience. This process starts when you submit, to the Office of Education Abroad, a syllabus for each course you intend to take while abroad. Then the Office of Education Abroad works with the UAB Registrar, UAB department chairs, and advisors to determine the UAB course equivalency for each of your intended courses. 
 
The good news is that many classes at the University of Hull have already been articulated!  To review the list of pre-articulated classes, please click on the Courses Offered link above. To review all classes available at the University of Hull, please click here.

All rooms are single and you'll find a mixture of en-suite rooms and rooms with shared bathroom facilities. The Lawns Halls are semi-catered which means you get an evening meal each day, with the exception of Nicholson Hall and the Lawns Bungalows which are self-catered. The Lawns are located in the nearby village of Cottingham, connected to campus via a bus, which is free to residents and runs about every 15 minutes from 6:00 am to midnight.
