If your work has been created in the course of your employment (e.g. writing a journal article, preparing teaching materials), English law grants copyright to your employer. The University of Hull's IP Policy affirms this right.
The University of Hull's Research & Enterprise Office advises University staff that they are permitted to sign authorship agreements and copyright transfer arrangements on behalf of their employer.
Copyright in work you create as a University of Hull student will normally belong to you, although there are exceptions (University of Hull Student Contract 2018-19).
