University of Hull
The University of Hull – the 'friendly university' – puts students at the heart of everything we do. We're also proud of our academic reputation, which reflects the high quality of the education we provide. The University of Hull – developed from University College Hull, which was opened in 1928 – received its Royal Charter on 6 September 1954 (the Charter and Statutes states that the University College of Hull was incorporated on 7 October 1927). The Duke of York (George VI) laid the foundation stone in 1928 and the College opened in October with 39 students and 14 ‘one-man’ departments. There were 100 students in 1931. The total student population at the University of Hull is now approximately 20,000 across Hull and Scarborough campuses. Over 2,500 people are employed by the University of Hull; more than 1000 are academic staff. The University comprises six faculties: Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences; Hull York Medical School; Faculty of Health and Social Care; Faculty of Science and Engineering; Hull University Business School; and Faculty of Education.
