The campus is clean, bright and airy and I love the fact it is all on one campus and right next to the town centre so no public transport is needed. The wifi around campus is quite weak at times, but is sufficient enough.
Amazing university, which you will only understand when you come here. It has a brilliant community, with small class sizes and smaller societies. It has a beautiful campus with a lot of money being put into new buildings and resources (but the campus des sometimes resemble a building site). Some parts do struggle from being a small Uni- especially the SU which somehow is not able to run a bar.. It is an great Uni, with amazing charm and a very personal touch, you will know every person on your course by your second year, a probably about half the campus.
I think the university is fantastic and offers complete support for any type of person. Willing to care for those that need it. Facilities could be a bit better however the social aspect more than makes up for that loss.
Great facilities, clubs are varied but expensive, union shop (like all other unis) is a MASSIVE rip off for food, just go into town for lunch. Careers supply opportunities constantly throughout my course, internet is amazing.
Everything about the Uni is amazing except the SU, there is no bar (the partner bar doesn't offer discounts and is expensive). The shop recently put their prices down to normal (not £2.50 for a cheese sandwich!) but the hot food counters are really yummy too.
My course never really used the central services building because I am at the opposite side of campus. The wi-fi is awful and drops connection constantly. The health and well-being has helped me allot with allot of personal issues and issues from my halls. I have never used the careers service but I have herd that it is good.
I spent a year at Coventry which was absolutely awful so I transferred to Huddersfield. The university is so much better. The buildings are all modern unlike Coventry's flashback to the 60s/70s. The staff are all friendly and take genuine interest in students. The student support services have all been very helpful and the careers department put a real effort into each student. Also unlike Coventry there aren't as many foreign students who can't speak English holding the class back. It's a genuinely nice place to be.
The University of Hudderfield is amazing, so much better than I expected. The campus is lovely and quite small which I like as it is easy to navigate. There are plenty of clubs to get involved with and the facilities are excellent.
Huddersfield fantastic university for students to come together and collaborate cross courses by using facilities available which are first rate there is always an event going on organised by the su. The university has fantastic facilities good libraries sports hall and eateries which are great hang out spots for students.
Honestly was terrified of going to university but the media and journalism team have helped me settle in and get used to the change in timetables and living away from home. The facilities are great and studio grade quality. Very happy that I decided to come to Huddersfield!
In my experience, the staff are all friendly and know what they're talking about. There are plenty of career opportunities and a lot of courses offer an optional work placement in your chosen field in the third year. The course fees are currently cheaper than most other universities, sitting at around £8.5K a year. While the Uni's official accommodation is a few miles away, there are other choices which are on the same street as the campus. At the end of the year, you'll look back and realise how much fun you've had and how many stories you have to tell... before you remember you're going back in September to do it all over again. I highly recommend the University of Huddersfield.
This university is the worst university in the whole world, unprofessional and mean tutors , distgusting study area. I have studied at this university unfortunately wnd since then I regret it every single day, I wish I could return back to the day that I had to decide between huddersfield and leeds. PLEASE DONT WASTE YOUR TIME. The most nagative point is the tutors who doesnt care if you okay mentally and physically and they never help you or support you.
Very good friendly university, helpful in everyway possible always someone putting you in the right direction. Kind teachers there to listen and help you out with situations and problems. Great facilities to use within all departments. Keeping up with the latest technology such as the newest 3D printers. Brilliant societies to join to make great friends.
University of Huddersfield has very friendly and helpful staff. It is constantly being improved and upgraded with up to date technology and facilities. It has a very good student services. There are constantly new societies being formed, last year alone many new societies were formed including the Assassins Guild (H.A.G.S) which I founded. All societies are at a high standard and are a lot of fun! All round Huddersfield University is a great university and one to look out for in the future
Excellent uni, very happy that I choose to study here. The help and gudiedess from tutors was always their when needed. Campus life is friendly and inviting. the uni itself has a wide rage of socities for studenrs to join and a hige range of student events within the party scence to make uni life as enjoyable as possible.
It's a really awesome place with excellent state of the art facilities for students due to it's brand new multi million pound refurbishment. I'm in applied science and lecturors are all literally at the top of their game. Their knowledge is outstanding and if a student shows they're willing, they'll do anything to help you achieve your best. Huddersfield is a great uni, it's got everything you could need and then some!!
Huddersfield is so friendly, you feel at home right away. In Human and Health Sciences, the staff are always helpful and you get loads of support. The SU are helpful when you need anything and put on some great nights and activities. Overall it is a fantastic little university in a wonderful town.
The universities facilities and union is great! Always trying to get all students involved especially for the clubs and societies. The only downfall is the wifi in the students union is slow and sometimes cannot be connected to.
Sudden change of course content for year 2014-15 for new intake of Architecture/Architectural Technology without prior notice. Thus causing even external examiners to notice the lack of high standard of work produced this year in addition to the cluelessness of every student after lectures.
As someone who has completed their first year, I can say the experience has been amazing thus far. The campus has a brilliant modern design, with new buildings and lecture halls. The people are friendly and quick to ask to join a range of societies. Furthermore, as a business school student I would recommend Huddersfield. The lecturers are very supportive and have years of experience in your chosen field.
The university has a very welcoming feel about it and the students and staff are always so enthusiastic and happy to help. The university is quite small and compact within a certain area of the town so it isn't too daunting , however it's rejuvenated look gives it a calm and spacious feel which enables students to both socialise and study accordingly. Being situated by the cannal it also offers a very picturesque landscape, unlike many city centre concrete jungles.
