Course recommendations
The history and american studies departments are both good and well organized. Unfortunantlythe university has cut funding for degree programs in foreign languages. Hence, access to certain langage courses is more limited starting in thge 2001-2002 accademic year. However the Language Institute is very good and has lots of resources for 60 something languages and they teach beggining through advanced levels in several languages that can be taken as part of a degree or as an extra course. Course are offered in languages as diverse as Spanish, French, Itallian, Japanese, Chinese, Dutch and German to name a few. There is also English for accademic purposes for non native speakers of English.

I wish I had known...
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).

Personal recommendation
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.

Housing
Type of housing: Non traditional Uni owned housing
Arranged by: Independently - I had no other choice
If returning, I would choose: rivately owned accomadation
Why?
Private accomadation-if you can get what you want/need can be cheaper. But if you need to be close to the university due to any difficukties with special needs Taylor court is is ideal. You Share a Kitxhen but have your own room with a private Bath.

Personal comments
Ocassionally, there are difficulties in getting repairs made,if needed. This is due to a lot of restructuringand cut backs in stsff but if you advise the cleaners who come in to clean coommon areas, they can report it for you or rereport it if needed.
