Why do nearly 20,000 students choose to study at Huddersfield?
Excellence The University of Huddersfield is a growing centre of research and excellence and we always push the boundaries of knowledge.
The University places a great deal of importance on industry experience and therefore 100% of our undergraduate students have the opportunity to undertake professional work experience during their studies. Enjoyable Since 2010, £80 million has been spent on campus development making sure our students have access to some of the best facilities in the country.
Our campus also has a vibrant social scene and we have a very active Students’ Union with more than 110 clubs and societies. Enterprising The University is growing its reputation as a leader in the field of enterprise. In 2012 the University was awarded the prestigious Times Higher Education Entrepreneurial University of the Year and followed this up in 2013 when it was awarded a Queen’s Awards for Enterprise: International Trade. Professor Liz Towns-Andrews, Director of Research and Enterprise, also received an individual Queen’s Award for Enterprise Promotion. We have helped a number of graduates to set up their own successful businesses and have a fantastic Enterprise Team who are here to help students get their business ideas off the ground. The Duke of York Entrepreneur Centre, housed in the 3M Buckley Innovation Centre, is a great hub for students who wish to set up their own business and provides a great opportunity to network with other students and local businesses.
From fuel and clothing to pharmaceuticals and phones, chemistry is the central science that makes our modern everyday lives possible. Chemical engineering delves into how chemical reactions can be scaled up for industrial manufacturing. So, if you like the idea of a degree that has chemistry at its core while also giving you the chance to develop an industry-relevant specialism in chemical engineering, this course could be perfect for you.
Chemistry at Huddersfield has deep roots. Our teaching and research dates back to the 1840s, when we were a centre for colour chemistry, supporting the textile and dyeing industries in the area, so studying with us means you can get the benefit of all that tradition while setting your sights firmly on the future.
