The University of Huddersfield has around 280 full time courses with a wide range of subjects, both modern and traditional. The university has invested nearly 80 million pounds recently on its infrastructure and technology upgrade and is considered to be one of the very  highly prestigious universities in the world. 

 

IF YOU'RE LOOKING FOR A COURSE OTHER THAN HOSPITALITY MANAGEMENT, YOU SHOULD SEE THE FULL LIST OF COURSES FOR 2015-16  HERE.

 

The tuition fees for BA (Hons) in Hospitality Management is £12,500/- but the University will automatically consider you for the £2,000 international scholarships for new students from India as part of your application. They will also give you a further discount of £500/- for paying your yearly fees in advance (which has to be paid anyway as per the visa requirements for Indians). So you actually pay, for normal students, only £10,000/-.

But if you have good grades, then in addition, the University will offer you a further £1,000 scholarship (Santander scholarship for applicants of exceptional talent). The scholarship will be considered as part of the application process and should you be successful, you will be awarded a total scholarship of £3,000 which will be confirmed on your offer letter.  This scholarship applies to the first year of your studies only. So if you’ve got good grades so far, then you would pay just £9,000/- in your first year.

The full 4-year course will include 12 months job placement/internship; you will pay a reduced fee of £1,400/- for that year in work placement/internship, and you will earn around £1,000 to £1,200 per month = £14,400/- in that one year alone in full time employment. You will also earn at the same rate working full-time during your vacations, and half of that working part-time (20 hours per week) during the rest of your course (term time).

The University of Huddersfield tuition fees for MSc in International Hospitality Management is £12,500/- but the University will automatically consider you for the £2,000 international scholarships for new students from India as part of your application. They will also give you a further discount of £500/-for paying your yearly fees in advance (which has to be paid anyway as per the visa requirements for Indians)
, so you actually pay only £10,000/- (this is a 1-year course, and if you have done your BA at University of Huddersfield and go for the M Sc after that the scholarship available doubles to £4,000/-, so the M Sc cost comes down to just £8,500/- ! And as you pay the full year's fee in advance you get another £500 off ! So the M Sc fee comes down to just £8000/-)

Storthes Hall Park and Ashenhurst Houses Student Accommodation are our recommended and approved halls. These are independent of the University and are privately owned and operated by Digs Student. Huddersfield also has accommodation for families.

 

What’s available:

 

Storthes Hall Park Student Village gives you a great home from home feel. You have easy access to the University and town centre attractions with our dedicated free shuttle bus service. You also have the benefit of living in beautiful Yorkshire countryside without missing out on a great social life.

With a superb range of facilities and services available, this site is ideal for first year students. Situated in attractive parkland to the south of the town, it offers a total of 1,432 en-suite single, single deluxe, double or disabled bedrooms in shared flats of 6 to 8 students, each of which has a communal kitchen/dining room – equipped with cookers, microwaves, fridge/freezers and kettles. Fibre Optic Broadband internet access is standard in each room. The site is manned 24/7 by an on-site team.

 

It gives you the opportunity to study with easy access to superb facilities including:

Bar and Club

Mini Supermarket

Gym

Sports Pitch

24 Hour Security and CCTV

DVD Rental

TV Lounge

ATM

Entertainment and Special Events

 

A comfy bed for you to stretch out in, a bed side unit to keep all your prized possessions, shelves, a huge notice board, wardrobe and a large desk for you to study at! We have single bedrooms and doubles available with either a double bed or two singles. Every bedroom gets their own en-suite bathroom with a shower, wash basin, toilet and mirror so there will be no fighting for the shower in the morning! Not forgetting the all important free super fast optic broadband with optional upgrades.

Each apartment has a fully kitted kitchen with a dining area. Some of the apartments have also been recently upgraded to include a lounge with an LCD TV. The communal area of your flat is a great place to learn to cook, socialise and hang out with your new flat mates.

Storthes Hall in Huddersfield has long been regarded as one of the best places for students to hang their hats. Situated in beautiful Yorkshire countryside five miles to the South East of Huddersfield, the regular shuttle bus service means the town and the University are only a short distance away, making it an ideal, affordable and a fun place to be.

 

Ashenhurst Student Houses is the perfect accommodation for students who are a little more independent and want to stay away from the hustle and bustle of a large student village. Closely located to the town centre and university, Ashenhurst is a fun and affordable place to be.

The communal house design gives you the best of both worlds. You’ll be sharing a house, kitchen and bathroom facilities with your house mates as you would in a private let, with the added benefit and security of being part of the DIGS community. Broadband internet is included as standard in each room. As with Storthes Hall, Ashenhurst Houses is also staffed 24 hours a day.

Ashenhurst Houses is located within lovely parkland with plenty of outside spaces for a kick around and the all important BBQ area’s for the summer months. Ashenhurst residents are also more than welcome to join in the activities at Storthes Hall Park.

A comfy bed for you to stretch out in, a bed side unit to keep all your prized possessions, shelves, a notice board, wardrobe and a large desk for you to study at! You get a wash basin in your bedroom but as the accommodation is based on a “house” rather than a flat you share a bathroom, shower room and two toilets with your fellow housemates.

At Ashenhurst Houses the kitchen areas are where everyone can mix and get to know each other. Here you'll find cookers, fridge freezers, microwaves, table and chairs, kettle and in the standard houses there is also a leather sofa to relax on.

Built based on a communal house design this accommodation gives you the best of both worlds. Unlike renting a private house in the city, at Ashenhurst you are moving into a fully fledged student village facility and you'll get all the benefits from it. You'll be about a 15 minute walk away or a 5 minute bus journey from the University. You are able to use the public transport service with your Digs bus pass.

 

Family accommodation

If you need to, check into a local hotel for a week or two while you explore Huddersfield and make a decision about what area you want your family to live in, where local schools are and what worship and prayer facilities are available locally.

The University recommends:

Briar Court Hotel which is convenient for the M62 Motorway connection Briar Court Hotel which is convenient for the M62 Motorway connection from the Airport and a short taxi ride into the town centre and to the University.

A single room costs £61 per night or £385 for a week.

A three bed family room costs approximately £85 per night or £525 for a week.

A large family suite costs approximately £95 per night or £595 for a week.

Prices include breakfast and all taxes

Arrange to view a number of apartments and houses until you find one with which you are happy.

If you are looking for a "let" or "lettings" or "rental property" it is best to centre your search on the University postcode which is HD1 3DH.

You should expect to pay up to about £500 per month for a small three bedroom house, up to about £1,000 per month for a large four bedroom house or stylish apartment.

When you have selected a property to rent you will be asked to sign a contract, which will usually be for at least 12 months, for which you will pay one month at a time in advance. You will also be asked for a refundable deposit of approximately one month's rent against any damage to the property while you are living there.

Please try and book your accommodation before you arrive in Huddersfield.

ABOUT HUDDERSFIELD:

 

Huddersfield’s reputation and prosperity was built around the textile industry and its fine woollen worsteds are still sent to customers all over the world. The boom created by the textile industry provided a rich legacy of fine Victorian buildings such as the railway station and its town Hall.

In 1920 Huddersfield Corporation purchased the Ramsden Estate including almost all of its town centre. As a result of this, Huddersfield has affectionately been styled as ‘the town that bought itself’.

The creativity that helped the town to prosper is still to the fore today – the town is becoming known for its award-winning festivals and a growing artistic reputation, earning it the European designation of a ‘Creative Town’.

Dominating the Huddersfield skyline, Castle Hill has been occupied since the Stone Age. The Victoria Tower was built in 1898/9 to celebrate the 60th anniversary of Queen Victoria’s coronation. Visitors can take in panoramic views across Huddersfield and the surrounding countryside.

 

COLNE VALLEY MUSEUM

Experience the atmosphere of these former hand weavers cottages and the working life of the mid 1800’s at the Colne Valley museum. Visit the loom chamber, spinning room and gas-lit cobbler’s shop. There are frequent demonstrations of traditional activities and crafts by museum members.

 

HUDDERSFIELD ART GALLERY

The gallery houses changing displays from Kirklees’ excellent permanent collection of British Art of the last 100 years. Artists represented include Frances Bacon, LS Lowry, Henry Moore, Graham Sutherland and members of the Camden Town Group. An exciting changing programme features artists working in all media from Britain and abroad.

 

TOLSON MEMORIAL MUSEUM

Each intriguing layer of Huddersfield’s past is revealed at the Tolson Museum. From the tools of the earliest settlers – made for hunting in the primitive forest – to the modern-day collections from local people. Learn how the boom in the textile industry changed people’s lives and brought prosperity to the town. Tolson leads you step-by-step through the centuries of Huddersfield’s history.

 

ARCHITECTURAL HIGHLIGHTS

From old to new, Huddersfield has a wealth of attractive and award winning buildings.

In the town centre some of the finest buildings can be found in St. George’s Square. The railway station façade is considered by many people to be the finest in England and has been described as a ‘stately home with trains in’. Many of the warehouses and offices in the adjoining square were built in the Italianate style, magnificently concealing their former industrial use.

The McAlpine Stadium’s pioneering modern design was awarded the Royal Institute of British Architects’ ‘Building of the Year’ in 1995.

A town trail leaflet that explores many of the interesting and attractive buildings will be published in Autumn 1999.

The Kirklees visitor guide available from the Tourist information centre gives details of more things to do in the area beyond Huddersfield. The guide also lists details of accommodation available in Huddersfield and Kirklees.

 

SHOPPING

The town centre provides a contrast for shoppers, from intimate lanes and arcades with small high quality shops to pedestrian areas providing the best in modern shopping and most major international chain stores.

 

BYRAM ARCADE

A Victorian atmosphere pervades this elegant arcade built in 1880 and refurbished in a traditional style. Small units on three floors offer a complete range of merchandise for those with a taste for the individual.

 

QUEENSGATE MARKET HALL

A well designed building containing about 180 stalls, linked to the modern day shopping arcades. Open Monday to Saturday

 

BROOK STREET OUTDOOR MARKET

The hall dating from 1887-89 originally served as a wholesale market but has now been beautifully restored and serves as a general market on Monday and Thursday, plus a bric-a-brac market on Tuesday and Saturday. The building is a fine example of cast iron work with glazed walls and elaborate detailing.

 

CANALS

The beautiful and picturesque canals of Huddersfield historically played a vital role in the development of the town, carrying coal, wool, finished textiles and many other goods. They are now peaceful places to walk, cruise, picnic, and discover a fascinating mixture of industrial heritage and nature.

 

ASPLEY BASIN

Located off Wakefield Road, Huddersfield just outside of the town centre, Aspley Basin is the terminus of the Huddersfield Broad Canal, a cruising waterway which links into the national network. What was once a hive of activity is now home to moorings and a popular canalside restaurant and pub.

 

HUDDERSFIELD NARROW CANAL

Running from Aspley Basin along the Colne Valley, this formed the shortest Trans-Pennine route. It includes the Standedge Tunnel, the longest and highest in the country at 3 miles 135 yds long and standing 645 feet above sea level. A major restoration scheme is underway to re-open the full length of the canal, including the tunnel, by early in the new millennium.

From Huddersfield you can walk along the canal towpath to Marsden, a distance of seven miles through a valley of stark scenic beauty and imposing industrial architecture. A leaflet ‘The Pennine Link’ is available giving full details of the history and attractions along the canal.

 

ENTERTAINMENT

Huddersfield is now firmly on the map when it comes to entertainment. Recent developments have given the town high quality venues to match its cultural output. A comprehensive listing of concerts and events ‘What’s On Kirklees’ is available from the Tourist Information Centre or various venues around the town.

 

LAWRENCE BATLEY THEATRE

Occupying a stylishly refurbished former Wesleylan Chapel, the main theatre offers diverse repertoire of drama and music in a variety of stage formats. The smaller Cellar Theatre provides an intimate venue for late night music, comedy, cabaret and small-scale theatre.

 

HUDDERSFIELD CONCERT HALL

An extensive and varied musical programme begins each autumn at Huddersfield Concert Hall, a grand venue in the Town Hall. Highlights include a top class orchestral season and a season of lunchtime organ recitals.

 

ST PAUL’S CONCERT HALL

At St Paul’s Concert Hall recitals are given by students from the University of Huddersfield and professional artists, ranging from soloists or brass and symphonic groups.

Almost all types of music can be heard in Huddersfield and the surrounding district. Jazz gigs occur at several pubs and clubs and the nearby small town of Marsden hosts a popular jazz festival in October. Folk music centres on Holmfirth and Cleckheaton, both a few miles away, with festivals in May and June.

 

UCI CINEMA

Purpose built nine-screen cinema next to McAlpine Stadium showing the latest films.

 

WINING AND DINING

Huddersfield offers a diverse cuisine to delight the palate. Some of the finest restaurants in Yorkshire can be found here, offering traditional British, Asian, French, Italian and Chinese Cuisine. Traditional fare and innovative menus can be found in many pubs in and around the town, offering good food and great value. Even the fish and chips can claim to be the best in the land!

If you are looking for a night on the town then Huddersfield is the place to be! The town’s pubs scored 8 out of 10 in a recent review by FHM magazine. There’s also a choice of night-clubs where you can dance into the small hours. If you prefer something a bit quieter, why not visit one of the many country pubs where you can sample proper Yorkshire beer and hospitality.

For more details of pubs, clubs, cafes and restaurants in Huddersfield pick up a copy of ‘The Alternative Guide to Huddersfield’ from the Tourist Information Centre or various venues around the town.

 

SPORT AND LEISURE

As you might expect in the place where Rugby League was born, sport plays a vital role in the life of the town. There are a multitude of activities to get the adrenaline flowing for both spectators and participants.

 

McALPINE STADIUM

Opened in 1995, this 24,000 seat stadium is home to both Huddersfield Town Football Club and Huddersfield Giants Rugby League Club. Tours of the stadium are available for groups by arrangement.


HUDDERSFIELD SPORTS CENTRE

Facilities for a wide range of sports include swimming, bowling, squash, badminton and fitness suite, sauna/solarium, many exercise classes and crèche.

The area around Huddersfield is ideal for exploring on foot or cycle. From short strolls to challenging walks there’s something for everyone within a few minutes of the town centre.

Funding Your Studies
 

Studying outside your own country can be expensive and hence you should investigate all possible sources of funding. Many students will fund their studies through family or personal savings. Others will be fortunate to secure sponsorship from the University, government or charitable organisation. However many students are also funding their, or at least part of, studies through a bank loan and additional information is therefore outlined below.


Bank Loans
 

Most public sector banks and private banks provide education loans to students for pursuing higher professional or technical programmes abroad. The sanctioned loan covers university fees, purchase of books, equipment, travel expenses and purchase of computers. Other essentials like study tours, project work and thesis are also often covered by the loan amount.


Obtaining a Bank Loan:
 

Different Banks have different schemes under which they define the amount of the loan they can sanction, the rate of Interest, the time and mode or repayment and all. We must strongly advise you to consult different local banks in your home town for education loans and choose the best option available.

 

Private Company Education Loan:

 

For your benefit and convenience we have tied up with AVANSE EDUCATIONAL LOANS, a private company, to provide you with an educational loan on reasonable terms. They will fund all your fees, travel and other expenses including living expenses. However there is no compulsion for you to take the loan from them; you can exercise your right to take the loan from your own sources also. Just click the ‘Need a Loan’ link on this website for an AVANSE application form. Fill it up, scan and email it to us. It takes about 7 days to get an ‘in principle’ approval.

Documents Needed:

Listed below is a guide to some of the documents that you would need to provide the bank before you can avail of the study loan: Unconditional offer from the university as proof of admission to the course


Bank statements for the last six months, IT returns not more than two years old and a brief statement of assets and liabilities of the borrower Schedule of expenses for the course including accommodation costs, travel costs, food etc
Mark sheets of school exams and graduate studies that you have completed so far. For a more comprehensive list visit a bank near your area and check with them.


Note that official study loans are accepted by the British High Commission or the British Embassy as proof of funding to cover your tuition fees and living costs. However you may still be required to provide evidence of the security you have provided for this study loan


Repaying the Loan:
 

Students are normally given a repayment holiday or moratorium during the study period plus one year, or six months after getting a job, whichever is earlier. The loan has to be repaid in five to seven years after the commencement of repayment, this again varies from Bank to Bank so please check with your banks while procuring the Bank loan. Whilst you are studying your family will usually be required to pay the interest only on the loan
