Why the University of Huddersfield?

Graduate support The Careers and Employability Service is committed to developing the employability of our international students at the University of Huddersfield. We offer students a range of support whilst studying at the University including targeted job fairs on campus. You can also discuss your career options with experienced, professionally qualified advisers who work with up–to–date information and have strong links with employers. The Careers and Employability Service has dedicated members of staff who provide specialist services for international students. Workshops, one–to–one appointments and links to employers all make up an invaluable service that will help international students understand the job market both in the UK and overseas.

Laura Trotter Bird Careers Adviser (International), Careers and Employability Service “All students have the same access to resources but we understand that some international students have additional requirements. We help them with their career direction, offer workshops, discuss their options for remaining in the UK and help them understand the UK market. We also help students find part–time work and talk about the importance of developing global networks if they want to go back home for work.

“For me it’s all about the student; meeting them face–to–face and seeing them progress. That progression could be developing confidence, supporting them to contact employers or helping them to decide their career direction. It’s not all about getting them into that job, it’s about raising their aspirations. We encourage students to take control of their own careers.”

The University’s Placement Unit gave me the opportunity to work for J&J’s directors which meant working in a highly professional environment, with many responsibilities and a chance to lead projects and teams. “For one year, J&J not only entrusted me with the duties of Sales and Operations Planning Coordinator but gave me opportunities to really make a difference. For example one of the projects led by me saved more than €2m for the company.

Ivana Uličná Programme Coordinator, Pontis Foundation Slovakia “The quality education provided at the University of Huddersfield has had a very positive impact on my career and I believe it prepared me for real world situations. The lectures, supervisions and the facilities available are all on a very high level. The professionality of the University staff teaches the students how to work and act as professionals themselves.

“My Bachelor’s course in Criminology and International Politics seemed quite rare and offered a mixture of disciplines showing us correlations between crime and poverty. With our lecturers and classmates, we spent much time debating, discussing and sharing ideas. This motivated and pushed me to learn a lot on my own. It taught me to think more independently and critically, putting emphasis on ability to analyse, which is crucial for effective international development project management, which I wanted to focus on. “My Master’s by Research degree allowed me to look into international development in greater depth. It also required me to take responsibility for my own work and improved my ability to plan ahead. Moreover, I appreciated the opportunity to develop within a multinational environment, learning about other cultures. I think all of these skills were crucial in securing my dream job in international development and the University was where it all began.”

MotoGP Presenter, BBC Sport United Kingdom “I am from Huddersfield so maybe I am biased but it is a great town with friendly people. During the course of my degree in Communication Arts with Spanish I got involved in some good projects in local radio and television that inspired me towards a career in sports journalism, as well as getting to spend a year working in Oviedo, Spain.

“This gave me the opportunity to pursue my early career in Barcelona, which eventually led back to the BBC. I don’t think you fully appreciate the opportunities presented to you whilst at university and how close they are to the real world. The biggest lesson is that you must apply yourself because nobody else will do it for you. As in life, you will only get out what you are prepared to put in.”

The course seemed unusual and offered a mixture of disciplines including linguistics, French literature and media–relations among other areas. I and some other students spent a year in a French university in the city of Besançon which furthered my studies of French television and culture.” Sally has been working for the BBC for over 15 years, starting as a broadcast journalist at her local radio station.

This internship led to a full–time job managing the Marketing, Research and Development Department. It improved my confidence greatly and gave me the freedom to try different approaches. “I had the chance of practicing a broad range of skills, which I now like to believe improved immensely, giving me the confidence that I can undertake any challenge in any role involving Market Research, Digital Marketing, Graphic Design and Product Development. “During my course I have undertook a market research module, which along with my design and product development skills helped me fit perfectly into the requirements of the role.

“During my internship I was given the freedom of making decisions right from the start, which not only helped build up my confidence, but also gave me the real industry feedback I needed. One of the first decisions I made was to design a new brand identity and a new website. I was researching, designing and testing marketing strategies whilst building up the structure of my department. The experience I gained through this complex work is invaluable to me. “The University of Huddersfield offers the greatest international student experience and has one of the highest rates of employability. The Product Design course is also one of the top rated courses in the UK. The set of skills I have gained throughout my studies are just in line with what the industry is looking for.

Electronics Engineer, Dyson Kuwait “I completed my Electronic and Electrical Engineering BEng(Hons) degree at the University of Huddersfield and straight after, I have been offered a PhD fee–waiver scholarship which I happily accepted. My research was about developing a novel method for non–invasive blood flow measurement. Following this, I managed to secure a job as an Electronic Engineer at Dyson Research and Development (R&D). “I have spent 9 years at the University of Huddersfield for both of my degrees and I am lucky to witness the massive transformation that the University went through including new buildings, facilities and services. I had such a great experience at the University, and with the help of the University teaching and support staff, I acquired the skills I needed to allow me to join the industrial world.

“Aside from my studies, I enjoyed very much the vibrant and friendly atmosphere on campus. I always had a passion for sports and particularly volleyball and the University did not let me down. The University helped me to start the volleyball club where I competed in local leagues and won several trophies. The University also organised events throughout the years such as International Sport and Food days. All those sports and social activities gave me the opportunity to meet new students and make friends.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank the staff at the University of Huddersfield to help me to achieve my dream and work for a high–end company.”

Aftab Afzal Electronics Engineer, Rolls–Royce Oman “My Electrical Engineering degree proved invaluable for developing my skills because when you start your first job it can often take time before you are given the responsibility to work on the high profile projects. But because of their confidence in the skills I had obtained from my degree here at Huddersfield, from day one, they have had me working on the important assignments, which is great. I have been involved in certification of Trent XWB EEC which has been installed on Trent XWB engine for Airbus A350. The Rolls–Royce Trent XWB, specifically designed for operation on the Airbus A350 XWB family, is the most efficient large civil aerospace engine ever produced.

“If you are a non–UK national this can often prove very difficult but with the help of the University's Computing and Engineering Placement Unit, in the third year of my BEng degree I took part in a really successful one year work–placement as an Industrial Engineer where I got hands on experience in my chosen industry. This shows just how successful the University is at helping students get into work during and after their studies.”

Marketing Assistant, Kuwait Petroleum International Lubricants UK Ltd (Q8Oils) Advertising and Marketing Communications BA(Hons) Bulgaria “My placement year has been one of the most memorable and valuable experiences in my life. I worked in a massive organisation, operating in the international market. The time I have spent working for Q8Oils has been exciting and beneficial for me as I made a lot of friends and created many useful contacts internally and externally. One of my main tasks has been liaising with the Sales team in the UK and colleagues from branches all around the world.

“Furthermore, I have been dealing with external organisations such as advertising agencies and design agencies. “During my time with Q8Oils, since the very beginning I have been treated as an employee, not as a student. I have been involved in major decisions and also I have been in charge of the marketing budget and expenditure.

“I have significantly improved my organisational skills as I have been organising our exhibition stands for the events we attend. Furthermore, being in charge of the marketing budget has brought the need for me to use Microsoft Excel on a daily basis as a tool to monitor expenses and payments. Working with colleagues from Europe, I often have to proofread content for the website and product bulletins which are sent to customers. “I’ve been involved in the process of launching the new website of the company and I was responsible for updating it on a daily basis. “There is no doubt that the UK is famous for being one of the world’s best spots for Higher Education, therefore, coming to the UK for getting a degree in Marketing has been a goal of mine I set at the age of 13. “In addition, I am a person who likes to leave her comfort zone, a person who looks for new experiences and constantly challenges herself. I just fell in love with the University when I came to see it. “The members of staff are really friendly and helpful. Tutors are very accommodating and always happy to help. During the placement ‘hunting’ process the members of the Placement Unit in the Business School were extremely supportive.”

Dominika Lewandowska Junior Interior Designer, I–AM Associates Interior Design BA(Hons) Poland “Working for this company was an amazing and unforgettable experience. It was the best decision I could make and was definitely worth all the effort I put into creating my portfolio. This work experience helped me to develop my skills as well as to learn new ones. I was given many opportunities to gain more responsibility on projects, some I would run independently. Halfway through my time at I–AM I completed an entire project for a restaurant on my own. “My role was to be responsible for the samples library, creating sample boards and mood boards, helping other designers with their work, doing plans as well as visuals and meeting and building up relationships with suppliers. “From this experience I have learned how to be organised at work and how to manage my time in the most efficient way. I also understood many things about working in a team and exchanging ideas with others. My placement year has also helped me to understand the design process, to consider drawing details and gave me a big knowledge about materials as well as using a design software. I have also been given the opportunity to work and speak with suppliers developing my communication skills. With these perks I am now ready for my final year. “I chose to study at the University of Huddersfield because of the course I was interested in. It is one of the leaders in commercial and retail design in the country. This has given me the opportunity to learn at the highest standards, to become a good designer and to be confident in finding a job after graduation. The environment is very friendly for the students. They have everything they need here and are still able to save some money. “My time at the University of Huddersfield was great and I want to make the last year even better. Thanks to the tutors and their hard work, I gained all the essential skills to start working in the industry. I learned how to be organised, responsible and self–motivated. I made so many friends at the University and I hope we will meet many times in the future or even that we will have an opportunity to work together.”

The event was held in Dubai and has been officially partnered and sponsored by Audi Corporate. “I have had a very broad experience with the leading companies that are based in London, Italy and Monaco. After graduating I worked in the field of superyacht design, private jets and interior design on large–scale residential projects. The short–term internships turned into successful employment that lasted for almost 3 years. Not only did I get the extensive and valuable experience to develop professionally, but I was inspired to create a design company focused on luxury segment in my homeland. “During the operating years the company had a great opportunity to design luxurious jewellery and perfume retail shops, high end luxury apartments and villas in Kazakhstan and Central Europe. “I believe that the degree at Huddersfield gave me a broad variety of skills and knowledge to be successful in the creative industry.

“The employers were amazed on the amount of input that I was giving into the design process during my work experiences. I can't forget how at the end of the first week of a short internship in one of the companies the Director offered me a full time position. “During the employment years I always dreamt of running my own company and just couldn't wait a long time for it. When I decided to work for myself and establish a proper company I was criticised by some experts due to little experience at the field and lack of financial stability. I agree it is very scary to start your own company; you make mistakes and run crazy sometimes. But it is such a great feeling when you see your clients with happy faces using bespoke products and interior spaces which are results of combined creativity and clients wishes. “For those who wish to run their own businesses I would suggest to gain some experience from the best companies in the market, even for free as you are investing in yourself. Do not stay for long time, try to learn as much as you can and find a perfect time to leave and start at your own. I think employers would hate me after reading this!” w. batyrospanov.com

Professor Nicholas Temple Professor of Architecture Nicholas joined the University of Huddersfield as Professor of Architecture in April 2012, having previously taught at the University of Lincoln as both Professor of Architecture and Head of the School of Architecture. Born in Australia, Temple studied architecture at Cambridge University and has a PhD on the subject of architecture and urbanism in early 16th Century Rome. He was a Rome Scholar in Architecture (1986–88) at the British School at Rome, and recently was awarded a Paul Mellon Rome Fellow (2012). Temple’s recent research and scholarship focuses on the historical inter–relationships between architecture, topography, ceremony and geography, examining territorial, symbolic and ideological exchanges between interiors, buildings, cities and regions.

This examination transgresses the conventional boundaries between architecture, painting, inscription, cartography and sculpture, incorporating broader inter–disciplinary research across historical periods and regions.

Why the University of Huddersfield?

Inspiring, Innovative, International.

Much of the research has been focused on the city of Rome, as evidenced in his numerous publications and in Temple’s recent award as the Paul Mellon Rome Fellow at the British School at Rome (2012). At the same time Temple has engaged in detailed research on the study of architecture as a humanistic discipline, examining in particular connections between architecture, language and pictorial representation. This research has highlighted how the humanistic tradition of linguistic enquiry, during the early modern period, served as a critical backdrop to the emergence of modern forms of Encyclopedism and the increasing interest in the possibility of both a universal linguistic system and an architectural language.

Professor Monty Adkins Professor of Experimental Electronic Music Monty has created installations, concert and audio–visual works, and a number of collaborations with contemporary performers. His works have been commissioned by Ina–GRM, IRCAM, BBC Radio 3, Huddersfield Contemporary Music Festival (HCMF), SpACE–Net, ZKM (Centre for Art and Media, Karlsruhe) and Sonic Arts Network (SAN), among others. For his oeuvre he has been awarded over 15 international prizes including the Stockholm Electronic Arts Award (Sweden), Grand Prize at Musica Nova (Prague, Czech Republic), and five prizes at the Bourges International Electroacoustic Music Competition (France).

Having read music at Pembroke College where he studied French mediaeval and Italian Renaissance music, Adkins then studied electronic music with Jonty Harrison at the University of Birmingham where he performed across Europe with the Birmingham Electro–Acoustic Sound Theatre (BEAST), and Simon Waters at the University of East Anglia. He is currently Professor of Experimental Electronic Music at the University of Huddersfield. Adkins is also active as a writer and concert curator. He completed his first book in 2011 on the relationship between art and music (Shibusa – Extracting Beauty), a second on the music of Roberto Gerhard in 2013.

Science // Physics

The International Institute for Accelerator Applications Particle accelerators are well known for their role at the frontiers of science, as in the discovery of the Higgs Boson. They also make a surprisingly important contribution to everyday life, from making better smartphones to treating cancer. The Huddersfield International Institute for Accelerator Applications (IIAA) brings together research in accelerator science and engineering, from low energy devices in its own laboratories eg. Electronic Beam Ion Source (EBIS) and Medium Energy Ion Scattering (MEIS), to the highest energy machines at sites around the world, including the Large Hadron Collider in Geneva and the European Spallation Source in Lund. Research staff link with others across the school and the University on a wide range of projects including FFAGS (Fixed–Field Alternating Gradients), proton therapy, and ADSRS (Accelerator Driven Subcritical Reactors). Researchers also work at national and international centres (CERN, TRIUMF, ESS, ILL, ESRF, ISIS) and play a strong role in The Thorium Energy Association (ThorEA) organisation to encourage the construction of Thorium–fuelled ADSRS.

English language support

Finding a PhD supervisor

All international research students can benefit from English language training to ensure they can reach their full academic potential. Depending on your needs we can support you in a variety of forms including one–to–one advisory sessions, small group workshops and short courses.

The supervision of your research will be conducted by your main supervisor, who will be a suitably experienced member of our academic staff, assisted by a team. Supervisors are there to support and offer you guidance throughout your PhD, helping you to write your best possible thesis.

Research degrees

To give you the best chance of acceptance onto your chosen research degree, it is strongly recommended that you make contact with a potential supervisor to discuss with them how your research interests may be compatible with their own interests and experience. You can use our keyword search to get you started www.hud.ac.uk/ourstaff

We have a number of research degrees that you can apply for including: Master’s level research (1 year full–time, 2 years part–time) • Master’s by Research • Master of Enterprise. Doctorate level research (3 years full–time, 6 years part–time) • Doctor of Philosophy • Doctor of Enterprise • Doctor of Applied Linguistics* • Doctor of Education*. *Please note that these research degrees are professional doctorates and incorporate elements of taught modules.

It is important to feel comfortable with your supervisor; after all they will be your mentor for at least three years. If distance permits, you can arrange a meeting with them or a telephone conversation where you can discuss your proposed PhD and their research interests. We would recommend that you read more about the research expertise of the University on our website. This will give you an overview of the areas in which it is possible for you to undertake a research degree. For further information on how to apply please visit www.hud.ac.uk/research

Dr Muhammad Usman Ghori Research Fellow “After gaining my first degree in Pharmacy and working as a Pharmacist I apprehended the need of patient specific medicine. I decided to transform my dream and move onto a PhD in Pharmacy. I am now a Research Fellow at the University of Huddersfield and I love the way my research has an impact on society and industry.

“My most favourite things about the University of Huddersfield are the friendly people and the great support I receive on different aspects of my research, academic skills, accommodation and social activities.
