UMSL Study Abroad Eligibility RequirementsThis program is mostly suitable for students who are flexible in their credit taking. Students are advised to have extra study-units (classes) in mind in case of any arising clashes in the time-table.

Subjects Available:


The University:  The main University campus is in beautiful grounds, just three miles from the centre of Hull, with its shops, nightlife and historic buildings. It is within easy reach of some of the most beautiful countryside in England and is a short distance from the coast. The Scarborough campus is within walking distance of the seafront.

Academics:  A key feature of all UK degrees is the requirement to think and learn independently and develop your own ideas while receiving guidance from experienced academics. At the end of your learning experience, you will have developed the ability to critically evaluate information and present it in an effective way. 

The subjects are taught in lectures, seminar groups and tutorials. You will be expected to discuss, analyse and form your own opinions about what you are learning. If you study a science subject, you will also learn through practical laboratory work. As an international student you will have a period of adjusting to the new academic system once you begin your studies. You will find that we have many services and helpful members of staff who will make this process easier for you. We expect that you seek out support when you need it –do not be shy to ask for assistance when you are uncertain about something.

Housing: Students can choose to live in single or shared rooms in either residences halls or shared student houses. 

Activities and Programs: 

Location:  Hull is a dynamic city on the Humber estuary. It has a reputation for friendliness and one of the lowest costs of living in the UK, making it the ideal place to spend your student years.
