Today, our commitment to research is stronger than ever. The University of Hull ranks among the top 50 institutions in the UK for ‘research power’ (REF 2014) and our seven research institutes – focusing on health, slavery and emancipation, culture, logistics, the environment, the sea and risk – work together to seek solutions for some of the biggest challenges facing the world.
