STUDYING

SOCIALISING The Library The Library offers a productive environment with spaces across five floors to reflect the way you work – collaboratively, quietly, plugged into a screen or with room to spread out and think. We also provide online access to an extensive range of library resources, from wherever you are, providing flexibility for those times when you can’t make it onto campus. If you are returning to study from work or raising a family it may have been a few years since you were in an academic library; our librarians will help you get the most out of the facilities and are on hand to help you find and access a huge amount of learning material. We also have dedicated services for our postgraduate research students. We’ve designed the Informed Researcher Workshops to help you develop the necessary knowledge, behaviours and attributes of successful researchers. We also run a weekly drop-in session for Doctoral students, giving you the chance to come and chat to our dedicated Research Librarians about any issues or questions you may have.

Students’ Union The Students’ Union (SU) offers lots of opportunities for students, irrespective of age, skill or experience, to get involved in the social side of life at University. There’s a huge range of activities to choose from, including bellydancing to salsa, horse riding to frisbee and everything in between. The SU also hosts special events throughout the year which encompass everything from days out in iconic cities and theme parks, to chilled evening events focused on great food, music and people.

When you’re studying hard, it’s equally as important to take a break or get support if you need it. The SU’s dedicated Advice Centre is staffed by professionals who can help with academic issues, financial struggles, accommodation worries and just about everything else. The Students’ Union can help broaden your experience as a postgraduate student and help you make the most out of your time at Huddersfield – don’t miss out, head on up and say hello!

The SU is an organisation led by students for students, which means nothing is more important to the SU than making sure they are doing everything they can to make your life better at the University of Huddersfield.

“I love the environment here it’s very accessible, supportive and friendly and there are some great facilities, including the Library and online learning resources.”

“Huddersfield is a great University; they really know how to take care of international students and make you feel welcome. There are always events going on across campus where you can make new friends and experience new cultures.”

If it’s character and quirkiness you’re after, Huddersfield takes some beating. It boasts one of the largest number of listed buildings in any UK town or city, from its stunning Victorian railway station to its most conspicuous landmark the Victorian Tower on Castle Hill. The strong transport links to major Northern cities such as Leeds and Manchester make Huddersfield an ideal location for those students juggling work, home-life and study.

SUPPORTING YOU

Employment and careers support EmployableME is our innovative approach to careers and employability – it puts you in control of your career planning and reinforces your professional identity. As a postgraduate student we know that you may not have much time to spend on campus and so our online tool MyCareer gives you 24/7 access to personalised resources.

Academic support Postgraduate study can be daunting and you may not feel fully equipped with the skills you need, especially if you’re returning to study after working or bringing up a family. That’s where our Academic Skills Tutors come in. They’ll help you to get to grips with the tools you’ll need and provide a secure and confidential space to discuss any issues you may have or even just to confirm you’re on track.

When you graduate you’ll also be automatically registered with our Grads Jobs Bureau which includes on-going free careers advice for life and access to graduate-level jobs via the University’s JobShop. Wellbeing and Disability Service The University’s Wellbeing and Disability Service offers students a range of support. Postgraduate study is fun, hard work and often depends on self-reliance to solve and articulate complex topics. It requires absolute focus and without attending to your wellbeing, that focus can be hard to sustain. The Wellbeing team is there to help you with strategies to cope with the added stresses and strain which you may feel during your studies and to ensure that your journey through your postgraduate degree is fulfilling and enjoyable.

Disability Services provides confidential advice and guidance, with a focus on you and the support you require. We’ll work alongside you to get the right support in place to make your time at Huddersfield enjoyable and fulfilling. The University Faith Centre Whatever your beliefs, you’ll find the Faith Centre a vibrant and welcoming place to be. You’ll be able to meet like-minded individuals to explore and discuss spiritual issues in a large community lounge. There are rooms for worship, meditation and prayer as well as ablution facilities.

TYPES OF STUDY Postgraduate taught courses Most of our postgraduate taught courses can be studied full-time or part-time and some courses offer distance learning opportunities so you can fit your studies around your lifestyle. If you wish to study parttime but can’t commit to a Master’s degree at this stage then you might want to consider a Postgraduate Certificate or a Postgraduate Diploma. These qualifications are internationally recognised in their own right and they can be built on for higher qualifications within the University in the future. All of our postgraduate modules can also be studied on an individual basis. If you attend a single module and elect to be assessed, you will receive a Certificate in Continuing Professional Development. You can then ‘cash-in’ this achievement as part of a Postgraduate Certificate, Postgraduate Diploma or Master’s degree later on if you wish. Postgraduate research degrees We have a suite of research degrees that can be studied on a part-time or full-time basis. A research degree programme will provide you with the training in relevant transferable and research skills which will support you in gaining expertise in a specialist area. It enables you to build upon your existing knowledge, acquire new skills and make an original contribution through supervised research.

18

Types of research degrees we offer are: Master’s by Research A Master’s by Research contains little or no formal taught component and is attractive to those wanting a briefer research degree rather than a PhD. Master of Enterprise The Master of Enterprise is a research degree that offers you the opportunity to explore an idea for a business or social enterprise, or for entrepreneurial activity within an institution. Doctor of Enterprise The Doctor of Enterprise is a type of Doctorate where you undertake research that can help you to set up a business, social enterprise, or innovative new service. It differs from a conventional PhD by requiring you to develop a business plan to exploit your research findings. Doctor of Philosophy A Doctor of Philosophy is the highest academic award and allows you to pursue a research project built around a substantial piece of work which has to show evidence of original contribution to knowledge.

Professional Doctorates A Professional Doctorate is suitable if you want your doctoral research to be structured around a particular area of professional practice. This type of Doctorate is most popular with people already committed to a professional area and who are looking for recognition and further development at the highest level of professional and academic achievement. Research projects database Our research projects database enables you to search our research degrees and find specific research projects associated with that degree.
