Get more than a degree

We know that investing in your education is about so much more than just reading new material. As you focus on your personal and professional development, we’re here to ensure your time with us is as rewarding as possible.

As a part of the University of Hull Online, you’ll get to experience tailored support throughout your journey, from comprehensive industry insights to multiple networking opportunities.

Here are five reasons you’ll love studying with us:

 

1. Holistic student support

Support iconOur staff are available to advise you from the second you consider a degree.

You can speak to our friendly Course Adviser team about any questions you have regarding our programmes, the application process, and funding your tuition.

Once you enrol, our Student Adviser team can help with any non-academic assistance you need. Ask them about anything from time management tips to making the most of our virtual learning environment (VLE).

As a busy student, it's also important to take care of your mental health. If you ever need a listening ear in a safe environment, our team of trained professionals will be glad to support you. Visit our Wellbeing and Mental Health page to learn more.

Our Careers and Employability team is available throughout your studies and post-graduation to help you enhance your employability, identify opportunities, and make well-informed decisions about your future.

Plus, following graduation, you’ll join our expansive alumni association. Build your professional network, keep in touch with your classmates, and establish yourself within your field. Take a look at our Hull Alumni Connects website for more details.

3. Valuable learning resources

Resources iconAll of your course material is accessible online – but those aren’t the only resources available to you. Our university library has a vast array of eBooks, eJournals, and more to assist you with your projects and research.

If you’d like to improve skills such as writing, referencing, and presenting to better support your assignments, the library’s Skills Team is another valuable aid. You can book appointments with them over telephone, email, or the web to hone your academic and digital capabilities.

You’ll also receive your own Student ID card following enrolment, which provides proof of your status as a student. Use it to access university libraries in your local area, and for a variety of student discounts.

4. Live digital and physical events

Calendar iconAs one of our students, you’ll have the opportunity to attend optional, face-to-face workshops and events, held up to twice a year across Europe.

These can be a fantastic way to meet your tutors and course mates while learning more about your field of study. However, none of these events are connected to any assessments or learning outcomes for your course, so there’s no requirement to attend.

You're always welcome to visit the campus as well, if you're ever in the area. In fact, once your graduation arrives, we'd love to have you join us in Hull to celebrate the big day.
