Going to university is an exciting time – and it marks a big life change, not just for students but also for their parents or carers. These pages have been designed to help you to understand what to expect.
There is also a printable guide for parents and carers.
If your son/daughter is starting university in 2013, please view our fees and funding for 2013. Here you will find the latest information regarding fees and funding for Higher Education.
You may also find our Student finance Q and As page useful.
Tuition fees and financial support for Higher Education changed substantially in 2012. We understand the importance of this and also explaining the choices available. As well as speaking to parental audiences in schools and colleges across the region, we offer a specialist event for parents on an annual basis.
Choosing a university is a complicated, but very exciting decision. The main point to remember is that you are not on your own; there is a large amount of help available in the form of school staff, careers advisers, external agencies and the universities themselves. All of us want your son or daughter to make the right choice for them and an informed one.
Huddersfield has some great accommodation for students so you can be sure that you'll have a safe and friendly place to live when you arrive here.
The Storthes Hall Park Student Village and Ashenhurst Student Houses are our recommended and approved halls. These are independent of the University and are privately owned and operated by Digs Student. For second and final year students - and first year students who want to 'do their own thing' and arrange alternative accommodation - there are lots of options in and around Huddersfield.
If you have any questions about applying to Higher Education or about the University of Huddersfield, please contact us on firstname.lastname@example.org or 01484 473145. We also have a new Facebook page especially for parents to find information, to enquire, to comment or to interact with each other - go to Parents of Future Students to find out more!
