  • Students at the University of Hull can take advantage of easy access to a spectacular coastline and some of the most beautiful open spaces in the UK such as the Yorkshire Wolds, the Plain of Holderness, and the North York Moors National Park, not to mention the many historic towns and cities nearby such as Pickering, Helmsley, Driffield, Beverly and York.
Program Summary: 

The KU Great Britain Direct Exchange Program (GBDX) is designed to stimulate and enrich the intellectual development of KU students through a direct experience in the British academic and cultural environment, promoting friendship with Great Britain and broadening international horizons. To realize this mission, KU has signed direct exchange agreements with ten universities in Great Britain, which allow KU students to study for a semester or year abroad at greatly reduced costs. In exchange, British students from these same universities will study for a semester or year at KU.

The University of Hull was established in 1927 and enrolls 16,000 students in 49 disciplines.

Less-common offerings available at the Hull campus: Drama, some Electronic and Mechanical Engineering, Hispanic Studies, Law (a year-long certificate program in English Law for international students is available), Music, South-East Asian Studies (an opportunity to fulfill Non-Western requirements), and Theology (Religious Studies).

Less-common offerings available at the Scarborough campus: Coastal and Environmental Sciences, Creative Music Technology, Dance, Music, Religious Studies, Theatre Studies.

Location: 

Kingston-upon-Hull is a city of 275,000 people, a major manufacturing and business center and Britain's premier east-coast port. It manages to maintain the civilities of a country town while offering all the facilities and amenities that you would expect from England's tenth-largest city. Visitors to Hull are often surprised by the greenness of the city and by the general absence of high-rise development. The modern city of Hull has a distinctively spacious and easy-paced feel.

Students at the University of Hull can take advantage of easy access to a spectacular coastline and some of the most beautiful open spaces in the UK such as the Yorkshire Wolds, the Plain of Holderness, and the North York Moors National Park, not to mention the many historic towns and cities nearby such as Pickering, Helmsley, Driffield, Beverly and York. For students wishing to travel even further, the Hull ferry port offers daily overnight service to Rotterdam, Netherlands and Zeebrugge, Belgium.

Academic Information: 

Students may earn up to 30 hours of KU credit for the year. Most disciplines are offered in the Humanities, Social Sciences, Natural Sciences, Engineering, Business, Education and Health Fields. Students are encouraged to visit Hull's website to determine if it offers an appropriate selection of courses to meet graduation requirements.

Courses and grades will be posted as KU equivalents on your KU transcript and grades will figure into your KU GPA. The relevant KU academic department will make the final decision regarding posting of credit and grades, and their application toward graduation.

Due to clashes with the KU academic calendar, KU students cannot study at the University of Hull for just the fall semester unless they are not planning to return to the Lawrence campus for the following spring semester.
