Take a Closer Look

What their Students Say

“I really love the location of Huddersfield as it’s in the middle of the UK, with good local transportation services. It is quick, easy and cheap to travel around the UK. Huddersfield is also relatively cheap to live in.

Huddersfield is a small place, but it is not a boring place, whenever there is a university event going on, the street is always full of students and I really like the vibe and atmosphere, I attended lots of different events. I really enjoy the social aspect of being a student at the University of Huddersfield. I enjoy hanging out with friends, as Huddersfield is quite small everyone is close by as are all the amenities. It saved me a lot of time and makes student life so much easier. 

I’m part of the Malaysian society and I play basketball for the University which is great as I got to meet lots of friends, play competitive sport and it’s great for my social life.

My physiotherapy course is surpassing my expectations. All the teaching staff regularly approach international students like me to check if I can keep up with the course. They are very helpful, they would even arrange an extra session for us if we needed it. I’ve had the opportunity to work in a hospital here and I learnt some valuable skills that will help me in my future career.”
