Studying for a degree means you are committing a large amount of time, effort, and money to help secure the most successful future you can.
Here at the University of Huddersfield we are committed to meeting our side of the bargain. We provide a professional learning experience and focus on preparing our students for careers in their chosen discipline. Our reputation for teaching quality, excellent research facilities and strong links with industry consistently enable us to produce the types of graduates that industry requires.
We know what employers are looking for; real world experience. That’s why we’re proud to be one of the UK’s leading universities when it comes to integrating paid work placements into our courses.
Work placements or 'sandwich years' play an important role in giving you that real world experience employers are looking for. They offer you periods of vocational training and experience, and are an important part of the majority of our courses.
So what makes our courses so special? Well, we ensure course content is current and relevant to industry and commerce by asking employers what it is they are looking for. Sounds obvious when you think about it, but it works and ensures you’re provided with the right skills and knowledge for your chosen profession. It probably explains why our graduate employment rates are so high.
