At Huddersfield the average starting salary of our postgraduates is £28.7k per annum and 93.8% of our postgraduate students go on to work and/or study within six months of graduating (DLHE 2016/17).

Whatever your reasons, studying at Huddersfield means that you’ll have access to great employment support – not just whilst you’re here, but throughout your working life.

Teaching excellence

The University of Huddersfield is a gold-rated university in the Teaching Excellence Framework (TEF) and we’re ranked number one in England for the proportion of staff with teaching qualifications (HEFCE 2016). This expertise extends way beyond our campus; we actively engage with professionals, statutory and regulatory bodies to ensure we teach in a way that will help you to progress your career, as well as deepen your knowledge and broaden your experience.

Fitting studies around you

Most of our taught postgraduate degrees and all of our research degrees can be studied full-time or part-time and some courses offer distance learning. You can also consider undertaking a Postgraduate Certificate or Diploma; these qualifications are steps towards a Master’s degree, are internationally recognised and can be built upon in the future.

Fees and funding

Postgraduate study and research is now more accessible than you think, thanks to the introduction of Government loans to support with tuition fees and the cost of living. We also offer a range of scholarships and bursaries for international students.

Tuition fees vary depending on the course/programme you choose and details can be found within our online course finder directory.

Supporting your journey

We’ve invested nearly £156million in exciting new buildings, top class facilities and support services to ensure Huddersfield is an amazing place to learn. With everything accessible across one campus and set at the heart of a lively town surrounded by stunning countryside, you’ll soon feel at home.

Our postgraduate community is made up of over 5,200, including taught students and researchers from nearly 100 different nationalities. We offer a whole range of specialist support to ensure you get the most out of your studies.
