World-class education at the University of Hull
The University of Hull offers a wide variety of taught and research degrees from Undergraduate through to Masters and PhD level research, as well as Continuing Professional Development (CPD) and informal training courses.
The Energy and Environment Institute at the University of Hull brings together leading academics to tackle global issues surrounding climate change and its consequences on livelihoods.
Aura CDT in Offshore Wind Energy & the Environment
Located in the Humber Region, at the heart of the UK’s Energy Estuary, the UKRI £5million Aura Centre for Doctoral Training (CDT) on Offshore Wind Energy and the Environment (funded by the EPSRC and NERC) is led by the University of Hull, in collaboration with the universities of Durham, Newcastle and Sheffield.
Each year, we offer upto 20 fully-funded PhD Scholarships to students from diverse academic and employment backgrounds who become part of a community of outstanding researchers, all seeking solutions to the environmental and engineering challenges facing the offshore wind (OSW) industry.
Leverhulme Doctoral Scholarships Centre for Water Cultures
PhD researchers within the Leverhulme DSC for Water Cultures explore humanity’s relationships with water in the ‘green-blue’ regions of the world, past, present and future.
More than 30% of the global population live within 100km of the sea, and estuaries and coastlines are home to many of the world’s largest cities. These are, and have always been, precarious as well as populous places, and coastal, estuarine and delta communities have long been shaped by both the opportunities and challenges of living ‘on the edge’.
Living with Water in an Uncertain Future Climate
The Risky Cities project is based around participatory arts and humanities activities that build climate awareness and help communities become more flood resilient, today and for the future.
The project will gather Hull-based stories of flooding and use them in community-based arts and heritage interventions as well as large-scale cultural productions developed in collaboration with project partners, Absolutely Cultured and the National Youth Theatre.
Hull has a long history of resilience in the face of flood events. As our society faces ever-increasing flood risk, we aim to learn from our communities’ experiences of living with water and communicate these stories in innovative and engaging ways to aid flood resilience.
INSECURE: Capturing Intergenerational Narratives of Coastal Change
The INSECURE project team worked with over 60 young people at Withernsea High School, to explore how young people engage, examine and understand coastal change within the context of their place within their communities.
The students took part in sessions covering climate change, coastal erosion processes and related hazards, detailing how communities like Withernsea would be impacted into the future. Within the sessions stories of Withernsea’s past and how coastal change has a long and interlinked history with the town’s development and people’s lives is also being highlighted.
The young people then made creative responses to what they’d learnt about coastal change, using photography, film and creative writing. These responses were gathered together to create the film ‘INSECURE’.
The Flood Stories project uses immersive storytelling and 360 animation to bring to life children’s experiences of flood. In the Help Callum and Help Sali videos the viewer gets to experience the children’s stories first hand and begin to understand some of the issues that they faced.
The Flood Stories research team worked with teachers and young people to co-develop a suite of flooding learning resources for teachers and educators, centred around the immersive virtual reality 360 videos. The resources include both online and download teaching and learning resources to be used as part of flood education in schools and to stimulate young people’s involvement in action on mitigating flood risk.
