Terms and Conditions: University of Huddersfield Open Day and Applicant Visit Day travel cost contribution scheme

To ensure our Open Days and Applicant Visit Days are as accessible as possible, we’re offering a contribution towards your travel costs.

The scheme applies to visitors who attend an on-campus Open Day and/or Applicant Visit Day event held between September 2023 and June 2024 allowing you to claim up to £75 towards the cost of travel depending on where you live in the UK.

If you’re attending one of our eligible events and would like to claim a contribution towards your travel expenses, simply pre-register for one of our on campus Open Days and/or Applicant Visit Days, making sure you enter your home postcode. Please check this carefully to ensure your postcode is properly entered.

You will only be able to claim your travel contribution if your attendance is recorded on the day, so make sure you go to one of our check-in points during the event.

How is your travel contribution calculated?

  • Your contribution is calculated from the home postcode supplied when you pre-register for your on-campus Open Day and/or Applicant Visit Day.
  • Only a single travel contribution is paid per visiting party.
