When choosing overseas study, Indian students are faced with a major decision. Which university will provide the right course and the right environment to help you achieve your goals? How should you go about applying for a course? What support will you need to make sure you have the language and study skills to succeed and go on to achieve an excellent degree and access global employment opportunities, with a period of post-study work in the UK?
Home to some of the world’s top-ranked universities, the United Kingdom is best known for its vibrant historic towns and pulsating city life. There is indeed no surprise as to why students’ hearts are set on pursuing their higher education and getting a degree from there.

The University of Huddersfield is one such popular institution among international students who are looking for an opportunity to discover a safe and welcoming country, as well as learn in a supportive educational environment and gain the practical and career skills required to succeed in a multicultural community.
Gold-rated for teaching excellence (TEF) and ranked joint 1st in England for the proportion of staff with teaching qualifications (HESA 2020), here’s how you can be a part of the University of Huddersfield:
1. Start with choosing a course in your preferred subject route: Whether you are interested in creative arts, computing, engineering or business, there is a programme at the University of Huddersfield International Study Centre to help you get a head start in your chosen degree.
International Year One programmes are a great way to quickly integrate into university life as you start your degree programme straight away and can also access additional study-skills and English Language support.
Once you complete your first year with the required grades, you can seamlessly progress to study the second year of your degree. The centre also offers pre-masters programmes, to support students to successfully start their chosen postgraduate programme.
2. Entry requirements: To study a programme at the University of Huddersfield International Study Centre, you need to meet certain entry requirements.
You would require an Academic IELTS for UKVI score (or equivalent) that shows your English language proficiency, certificates of academic qualifications and meet the minimum age requirement.
However, the admission requirements vary as per the programme chosen at the International Study Centre.
3. Process of admission: You can apply to the University of Huddersfield International Study Centre either online or through a local agent.
In the case of a local agent, they can be contacted for sending out or assisting you with an application form. Once you have received the form from Student Enrolment Advisers, they will review it and explain to you about the documents that are needed and how to send them.
If you are planning to apply online from the University of Huddersfield International Study Centre’s website, head to the application page and fill out all the details along with reading the terms and conditions before applying.
4. Tuition fees: You should consider both education and living costs whilst making your decision on where to study. Huddersfield has a relatively low cost of living for the UK, so you will also benefit from value for money.
For the 2021-22 intake, the programme fees are:
Students will also have to cover the cost of accommodation, airport transfers and insurance.

If you want to study the Pre-Master’s programme, the next intake is in June. There are also a wide range of English Language Preparation courses available if you need to improve your English language ability before your programme.
When studying your programme in the UK, you can expect experienced teachers and support staff, one-to-one support at every stage, additional health and safety measures and blended learning (a mixture of face-to-face and virtual teacher-led learning).
If you decide to study either the International Year One or Pre-Master’s programme at the University of Huddersfield International Study Centre, you will be issued with an integrated study visa, by the university.
The visa will cover the entire duration of your studies in the UK and will allow you to live and work in the UK, as well as accessing placement opportunities during your degree. After graduating, students can now work in the UK for up to two years.
