You must apply for your visa as soon as you receive your CAS but within six months of the course start date mentioned on your CAS. This will ensure that you arrive at the University of Huddersfield in time for the start of the enrolment period for your course.
Further detail about the Student visa as well as making a visa application in your country and getting visa documentation ready is available on our Student visa web page or you can email our immigration team.
You must complete all three steps of pre-enrolment once you have received your unconditional offer.
Pre-enrolment can be completed on our online portal - MyHud - and must be done before you can enrol on to your course. If you do not have accommodation booked yet, please see our accommodation pages for further information.
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 enrolled at the University.
Steps 2 and 3: You must update your term-time address (if you are in the UK 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 all the screens or we cannot enrol you.
Please ensure you wear a face covering for any journey in a taxi, on a bus or on a train. Please see the government guidelines for more information.
If you book this service, this ensures that no matter what time you arrive (day or night) there will be a University approved driver at the airport to meet you and take you to your accommodation in Huddersfield. This service is open to all international students arriving into the UK.
The University’s approved taxi company is called Edgerton Private Hire. You will receive a confirmation email from them once your taxi is booked.
The cost of this service for one passenger is between £50 and £75, which is payable direct to the driver. Please make sure you have some British currency with you on arrival into the UK for the taxi fare.
For bookings with more than one passenger, a larger taxi or multiple taxis are required. The costs for multiple passengers are as follows:
|One passenger from Manchester Airport||£60|
|Two passengers from Manchester Airport||£65|
|Three to four passengers from Manchester Airport||£85|
|One passenger from Leeds / Bradford Airport||£50|
|Two passengers from Leeds / Bradford Airport||£55|
|Three to four passengers from Leeds / Bradford Airport||£70|
|One passenger from Liverpool Airport||£75|
|Two passengers from Liverpool Airport||£85|
|Three to four passengers from Liverpool Airport||£105|
Arrivals from other airports, such as London Gatwick or Heathrow, we would recommend using public transport as this is the cheapest and fastest way to travel.
Please complete the short booking form. The taxi company will then email you to confirm the booking. They will also send you information on how to meet you when you arrive at the airport so it is important they have your correct email address and contact number.
IMPORTANT: Please note bookings must be submitted at least five days in advance of your arrival. We cannot arrange the University approved taxi driver service without you completing the booking form. Please also read the confirmation details when you received them and that you understand the cancellation terms.
This service is the only official University of Huddersfield partnership taxi service and it has been negotiated at a discounted price especially for our students. We cannot take responsibility for any other service arranged by a student.
If you book this service but do not arrive or do not use the service, you will be invoiced and charged for the taxi. If you wish to cancel your booking, please email firstname.lastname@example.org with at least 48 hours' notice and no charges will be made.

Please ensure you wear a mask for any journey on public transport. Please see the government guidelines for more information.
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!
Once you have completed pre-enrolment you will be emailed by our immigration team. They will send you some questions and once your answers are assessed you will then be fully enrolled. You will be sent an email to confirm your enrolment details and what to do next.
