The University of Hull Scarborough Campus is a higher education institution in the North Yorkshire town of Scarborough - and (as its name suggests) a satellite campus of the University of Hull.

History

The institution started life in 1947 as "North Riding College", a regional centre for teacher training in the north-east of England. In 1994, the college became "University College Scarborough" and began offering BSc and BA degree level courses in an effort to respond to the drastic fall in demand for teacher training places that threatened it with closure in the early 1990s. The institution changed to its present name when it became a campus of the University of Hull in August 2000.

Present Day

Today the university campus, with its liberal arts feel, offers a wide range of courses undergraduate and post-graduate across the sciences, social sciences and arts, many of these courses taking full advantage of the richness of Scarborough's natural seaside environment. There is a student population of approximately 1600 [Dean's Statement on University Home Page http://www.hull.ac.uk/scarborough/ retrieved on: 30/01/08] . This is from the University's total student population of 19,818 [http://www.hull.ac.uk/hulluniversity/facts/index.html retrieved on: 30/01/08] .

Teaching and research at the Scarborough Campus is based around five academic units:

* Centre for Environmental and Marine Sciences (Coastal Marine Biology, Ecology, Environmental Science)
* School of Arts & New Media (Theatre, Digital Art, Creative Music Technology, Internet Computing, English, Dance)
* School of Education (Primary Education, PGCE, Education Studies, Early Years)
* Management Centre (Tourism & Leisure Management, Business Studies, International Business)
* Centre for Lifelong Learning (a range of continuing education and professional development courses)

chool of Arts & New Media

The School was newly formed in August 2006, combining the Centre for Internet Computing with Arts courses. The Creative Music Technology students work alongside ex-Goldfrapp drummer, Rowan Oliver [http://www.hull.ac.uk/news/nov07/musicalyouth.html Retrieved: 30/01/08] , and have many successful graduates including Fame Academy’s Sinead Quinn and more recently, Stephen Carter who is part of punk rock band Gallows.

Cayley Halls



Cayley Halls were purpose built in 2000, as ensuite single rooms for student accommodation, also suitable for conference letting. The halls are named in honour of George Cayley, Scarborough's "Father of Aerodynamics". A plaque commemorating this can be found in the entrance of D block.
