Around 70% of Huddersfield students gain a professional qualification alongside their main degree and many courses also include a new language as an extra module. 97.3% of undergraduate and 93.8% of postgraduate students are in work or further study six months after graduating.

Our awards. All dedicated to you.
We’re proud to have won some awards. But hopefully they mean something to you too. Because the National Student Housing Survey only recognises accommodation based on real student experiences. So the people voting are the ones who live with us. Which means you can pick your Host student home with confidence.
