Huddersfield is first in England for professionally qualified teaching staff

You’re going to be weighing up lots of things before making your decision about where to go to university. But the standard of teaching is bound to be high on your list. Knowledgeable, qualified teachers can inspire you to be the best that you can be and support you to achieve great things. 

Everyone at Huddersfield puts the experience of our students at the heart of their work.

Professor Tim Thornton, Deputy Vice-Chancellor

My lecturers make the subject what it is. They are really approachable and genuinely want you to do your best.

Claire Hudson, History BA(Hons)

Best qualified academics

The University of Huddersfield leads the field with over 90% of its academics holding a teaching qualification – the second place institution came in with 84%. 

In December 2016 the Higher Education Funding Council for England (HEFCE) released figures comparing the number of academics holding a teaching qualification in 130 universities across England.

If I can inspire students to want to study, research and grow – instil in them a thirst for knowledge and practical experience – I feel this is the best path to effective learning, and in turn greater student achievement.

Dr Mark Mynett, Senior Lecturer in Music Technology and Production, winner of the University's Inspirational Teacher award 2016

I'd looked around some other universities but the staff here made a really good impression on me, they were so engaging and approachable.
