“Why Hull…?”

…as an exchange student this questions you will hear often! No matter who ask’s you. Many people of my Hometown know neither Hull nor the University of Hull. You have to answer these question the locals in Hull as well as the people in your Hometown.

Of course there are some points why you can vote against Hull – Kingston upon Hull has a population of about 258k and is located in the northeast of UK. Well, it’s not the richest City of England.

Beverley Road

You will find a lot of places like Beverley Road. No Castles, no sheep, nothing of the romantic imagination of a sleepy small city in the UK. Back to my initial question.

And, why Hull?


As an exchange student, the focus is not only on study. You need to perform at all the student party’s ;). Asylum is a club right on the campus. A great and safe place for clubbing with your fellow students.

Brynmor Jones Library

One of the best Libraries I have ever been ­­– Very modern and a lot of space. Even with an own twitter account.

Business School

I had a lot of contact with the employees of the Business School. Especially with those from the International Office. They are very polite and will help you with all your questions. Besides, there is no problem to change modules after your arriving.

Believe me. It is worth to study in Hull. Leave a comment and let me know if you come to Hull!
