I have very much enjoyed my university experience, despite personal set-backs and obstacles, I am somehow still a student and encouraged to do my best. The friends I have made and the support from the University such as lecturers have been incredible.

Job Prospects N/A

How does your uni make efforts to increase your employability (careers department, work placements, transferable skills)?

Constant emails sent to my University email account from graduate job websites such as Milkround, also opportunities to apply for graduate internships and schemes. Although not something I have looked into personally, I have friends that are pleased with the availability of chances to increase employability.

Course and Lecturers

What’s the best thing about your course & lecturers?

There is a range of subjects explored in my course, and a freedom to move around within it, from history and literature to media and the arts. Also the lecturers for American Studies I would call some of the best, as their classes are engaging and as for themselves, they actually seem to care and are genuinely lovely people.

Student Union N/A

What do you think of your Students’ Union? If you don’t get involved, why not?

I don’t get involved myself, but I have the understanding that it is an efficient student union. My reason for not getting involved is because I do a lot outside of University by myself or with alternative groups unaffiliated with the University Union, especially art. The biggest let down for me is that there aren’t more artistic elements to the University of Hull, and the Union alike.

Accommodation

If you live in university halls or private housing, what is your accommodation like?

I wouldn’t recommend the company that my housemates and I are currently renting with, but our home is cozy. We signed the contract quite early on, more than a year in advance, so we had pick of the litter with houses. Great size, facilities, and location. We have made our house a home.

Uni Facilities

How good are your university’s facilities?

Alright

What’s the city life like?

City life is quite nice and historic, especially now as the City of Culture 2017, there are a lot of interesting events and exhibitions taking place.

I don’t take part in University societies.

Student Support

How good is the support offered by the uni? Think both academic (tutors/feedback) and personal (counselling, etc).

You can get out of university whatever you want to get out of it. I didn’t do much in my first year and as a result I didn’t think it was doing much for me. Since then iv’e tried to do allot more and as a result I’ve had a much better time

Job Prospects

How does your uni make efforts to increase your employability (careers department, work placements, transferable skills)?

The uni careers service is very proactive in offering and advertising employ ability opportunities; for instance, cv workshops, employer meetings and such.

Course and Lecturers

What’s the best thing about your course & lecturers?

The lecturers are very good at engaging with students

Student Union

What do you think of your Students’ Union? If you don’t get involved, why not?

Many of the welfare groups are a mess and do not do their job properly. I.e. giving support to students from certain groups

Uni Facilities

How good are your university’s facilities?

The library is excellent with lots of computers and only resources to help with a course

City Life

Hull is very cheap and there is always something going on if you know where to look. Free live music, lots of cultural events, old movie screenings at a price much lower than what you’d find in other places

Clubs and Societies

What are the clubs and societies like?

The sports societies go out of their way to try and get people involved and make people feel welcome. Normal societies can become a bit cliquey after a point but are still good for meeting lots of people.

Student Support

How good is the support offered by the uni? Think both academic (tutors/feedback) and personal (counselling, etc).

There are lots of opportunities to talk with someone about the work that you’ve got to do. But also, the university offers access to mental health services to those that need it relatively easily.

Giving back

How much does your uni give back to the community (think global and local), do any projects stand out?

The university tries to take somepart in the city life, through the city of culture and through connections with local employers. But it still feels like the university sits in the city rather than being apart of it.
