Final comments
At the University of Hull, I really found a friendly and attractive campus, with excellent facilities such as libraries, a computer centre and a language Institute (there, I had the opportunity to improved my Spanish) Add to it extensive sport facilities, an amazing number of 75 clubs and societies, and I am sure you will certainly find your happiness there! It was a real cosmopolitan experience : 10% of the students are coming from more than 100 countries.

It would have been helpful to know a little more upon arrival about the academic system here in the UK. It's a lot different from the American system and you're completely on your own to find out what's going on...it's easy to be completely clueless as to what you're meant to be doing.

Although it's not the most beautiful city in England (and a bit rough in parts), there are plenty of things in Hull (clubs, societies, nightlife, etc.) to make studying here a worthwhile experience. Unless you join activities or live with British students, it is hard to meet local students and many will find that they meet more international students than anyone else. The key is joining the uni social clubs and societies to really get to know British students.

If you can avoid it don't fly in to Gatwick to and the have to take the coach (bus) to Hull. It takes up to 5 hours by train and 8 hours buy bus and asfter an international flight you are exhausted. If you fly into Manchester or Humberside airports International office can arrange to meet you or phelp with transportation (with advance notice).

The faculty are nice and very helpful. Although I advise keeping recieps for every payment you make to the Finance office for Accomadation or tuition fees, or any thing elsw for that matter as they tend to credit the wrong portion of your account. Try to avoid paying them in cash so that you have a record of the transaction. use a credit card ,cheque or a standing order from your bank instead.

Note that almost everything at the university closes for lunch. Especially administrative offices, Due any adminstrative errands between (:30 and 12 Noon and about 2:00- 4:00. If its a Friday get ther before 3:30 The shops in town often close between 4:00 and 5:30.

The last of the lectures should be longer and activities like cinema, concert and theatre should be arrange more often.

Foreign students have to be prepared to be faced to another culture and must adapt themself according to the host country. Moreover, they also, must have been prepared to a study program different in another language. Nevertheless, the adaptation to a new environment is pretty quick
