The University of Hull offers accommodation in a hall of residence. For students staying for a semester "student houses" are provided. Students studying for a whole year in Hull will be accommodated in "The Lawns".
You need to apply for accommodation in a separate online procedure via the accommodation office. You will receive all the information you need after you have been accepted by Hull. Following on from your application you will receive a message about the hall of residence. After the deadline has lapsed, the accommodation will no longer be guaranteed. During the period recommended for travelling to the University of Hull you can take advantage of a shuttle service from Manchester airport to Hull. Outside the recommended travel period, you will have to organise this yourself.
The examinations consist in final written exams or small pieces of homework. They are held in the second half of January or from mid-May until the beginning of June.
Please note that two Hull credits correspond to one ECTS credit. This means that you need to get 60 credits per semester in Hull, in order to attain 30 ECTS credits. You can find a course overview here. It is advisable to choose "undergraduate modules" and (if possible) "first year modules" (e.g. Public Law and the Constitution, Legal Skills, Legal Systems). You have the option of taking part in language courses – e.g. “English for Academic Purposes” offered by the Languages Department. You can register for this when you arrive. There are courses that only last for one semester, as well as ones that last a whole year. Please bear this in mind if you would only like to spend one semester in Hull.
New students’ orientation events take place in the last week in September or the end of January. Go Connect is the student network at the University.
After being accepted by the Faculty of Law, you will receive a comprehensive package from Hull by email. This contains registration forms that you need to complete and send back as scans by email. In this process, you will also choose your courses and complete the Learning Agreement. Please submit the following documents, which you will receive from your Coordinator of International Affairs:
- Confirmation of your acceptance
- Academic transcript of results (you will receive a template from your Coordinator of International Affairs)
- Letter of reference
- Confirmation of sufficient English skills
