The Knowledge Factor

7  September   Over   70 of the University of Hull’s talented new students are being given an early taste of the exciting academic life that lies ahead with a special week-long programme: the Knowledge Factory.Created for new Hull undergraduates who were predicted to be among the top achievers at A-Level, the Knowledge Factory will provide a kick start to their University career. During the week, students will sample University life by attending inspirational lectures and workshops and residing in the newly refurbished Lawns accommodation. Students will utilise full access to Hull’s attractive single-site campus including the world-class Brynmor Jones Library which has recently undergone a £28-million redevelopment and can even enjoy a full social programme.

During the Knowledge Factory, part of the University’s Talented Development Programme, students will also undertake special projects across a number of themes including health, creative industries, energy and the environment, logistics and digital. These will provide the opportunity for students to work on assignments reflecting real-life issues such as cancer treatment, Hull UK City of Culture 2017 and modern day slavery.

Jeanine Gregersen-Hermans, Director of Student Recruitment at the University of Hull, said:

Our Knowledge Factory provides a first-class welcome to some of our high-achieving new undergraduates. The programme provides the chance to learn key academic skills and discover how a research-led University such as Hull can advance knowledge and help solve real-world issues.

Living in our newly refurbished halls of residence for the week provides a perfect opportunity to meet new friends and truly experience being a first-year student; evenings will be filled with social activities to help students settle in to their new University life.

The Knowledge Factory is being held on the University of Hull campus from the 6th to 11th September inclusive.
