Welcome to Hull College Group

The Hull College Group is a uniquely diverse organisation and we take pride in the fact that we put the students at the heart of everything we do.

As a Group we are committed to improving the skills, employability and progression opportunities for all of our students. We’re proud of the accomplishments our students continue to make, as well as the successes demonstrated by our alumni as they go on to forge fulfilling and prosperous careers.

As a student you can be sure that from the time you arrive at one of the Hull College Group sites in Hull, Goole or Harrogate, you will find experienced tutors providing the highest standard of teaching and learning with excellent facilities to help you succeed. We also continue to develop relationships with businesses across the region, both to provide opportunities to students and to work alongside employers to upskill their workforce.

All of our programmes are designed to help you succeed, and we work closely with stakeholders across the region to ensure we cater for both students and businesses alike. I hope you will find all the information you need on our website, but feel free to contact us with any questions you may have – we are always happy to help.

I look forward to welcoming you to the Hull College Group in the near future.

If you need childcare to enable you to study, look no further than one of the Hull College Childcare Centres.  Fully qualified staff and centres that are OFSTED approved can offer stimulation and care of your child. All of our centres participate in the Government Nursery Grant Initiative. 

We provide a wide variety of play and learning opportunities for children under five years of age. The centres use a balance of free-flow and structured sessions to provide children with the opportunity to participate in a range of activities. These are based around the Early Learning Goals and the Birth to Three Matters, which help children develop physically, emotionally and intellectually.

Hull College has two childcare centres: one at the Queens Gardens Centre, and one at the West Park Childcare Centre. These centres serve all College sites.


The College’s libraries are well stocked with reading and learning materials to support your coursework.  With a wide range of CDs, books, videos, DVDs, newspapers and journals, as well as general interest and fiction titles, you will find everything you need for your studies, as well as plenty of material available for your own leisure. The  materials in each library are continuously updated, ensuring that all content is relevant and up to date.

Every site in Hull also has its own library, with its contents tailored more towards the
reading list of the subjects studied there.  Our libraries have designated study spaces, state of the art internet facilities, as well as other cutting edge and current electronic resources for students to use. A team of helpful staff are always present and happy to assist, including a dedicated HE Librarian.
