"The University of Hull is absolutely fantastic and consistently developing to meet student’s needs making it an exceptional campus to be on. I enjoyed my time here so much - the teaching quality is excellent and this gave me the skills to go from Cs at A-Level to graduating with a First Class degree. I struggled with writing style at school even though I knew my subject inside out. My course at Hull University Business School BSc Accounting, which included the chance to do a placement year has truly equipped me with the skills and professionalism I need to succeed in the workplace.


I ran to be an elected officer of the Students Union so that I could help change the lives of new students through education, just like my time at Hull has changed mine. This role is amazing and I would recommend it to anyone to run for. In addition, the intensity of being an Officer is giving me the exact skills employers are looking for. Hopefully my dream career in financial services will be even more possible for me to achieve."
