The University of Huddersfield’s roots go back 160 years, but its sights are firmly set on the future of its students, and it has close links with industry, business and the cultural community. Courses are modular, with a strong vocational emphasis. Emphasis on work placements in almost all courses has resulted in exceptionally high figures for graduate employment – recent figures showed that Huddersfield was the sixth highest-placed provider for post-university employment.

Huddersfield is a pleasant town and the university’s 24,000 students ensure that it has a lively social scene. The canal that runs through the campus makes for an attractive urban environment. The university’s management is committed to a continuing programme of investment in facilities, and the latest plan is a £22m student learning and leisure centre with vastly improved sports facilities. Within the higher education sector, Huddersfield has a burgeoning reputation for the development and deployment of innovative teaching and learning software.
