Animation                                                                   Interactive Multimedia

Fine Art                                                                      Museum & Exhibition Design

Graphic Design                                                          Television & Film Design



“The university revealed its plans for the city earlier this month so the open day is a great opportunity to tell students what we are doing,” commented education liaison officer Karen Raynes.


Students will be able to hear a wide range of talks about their chosen subjects, accommodation, university life and funding your degree as well as to hear about investment plans which will include a new learning resource centre, lecture theatres, workshop space and new refectory.


Other improvements could include a street café, an external sculpture court and an art shop and other retail outlets, all of which will underpin the university’s plan to consolidate its Hull-based academic activities (city centre and Cottingham Road) on its city centre campus.
