You can choose to make your own travel arrangements to Huddersfield directly from Manchester International Airport. There are frequent train services from Manchester International Airport to Huddersfield train station. A standard class single ticket costs approximately £24.20 anytime and the train journey from Manchester International Airport to Huddersfield takes around one hour.
Once you arrive at Huddersfield train station, you then need to make your way to your accommodation. There is a taxi stop outside the front of the station. Use the first taxi at the front of the line of taxis. Make sure you have money to pay for the journey, usually £5.00 - £10.00. Cash machines are available at the train station.
Please be advised that if your flight lands into the UK late at night or in the early hours of the morning, the University approved taxi driver service is more suitable as you may have to wait a number of hours at the airport for the next available train to Huddersfield.
We wish you a safe and pleasant journey, and look forward to welcoming you to Huddersfield!

Step 1 It is essential that you upload a head and shoulder photo of yourself in jpeg format for your student ID card. Without this you cannot be enroled at the university. We ask that you read this section before you arrive in the UK as there may be required reading lists for your course. This step will be open from June.
Steps 2 and 3 will open from 7 September. You must update your term-time address (if you will be in the UK in September use your UK address, if you will be arriving later use your home address) and personal details including email and mobile number. Please take time to carefully read and complete this step as all information is very important.

Opening a bank account can take time and patience, as different banks have slightly different procedures and requirements for certain types of documentation. It can take a couple of weeks to open a bank account in the UK and so we advise that you bring enough money to cover your first two weeks in Huddersfield. The best way to do this is using travellers’ cheques or a bank/credit card rather than carrying cash.
Opening a UK Bank Account:
Please note that you will need the following documents when you open a bank account in the UK:
The University has a branch of Santander bank on campus and they will be happy to help you open an account.
This is open to all students to register with and is located on campus next to the University’s Business School. You can view the campus map to see where it is located.
To pre-register simply visit the University Health Centre website.
