Our partners offer a wonderful range of traditional higher education courses and a variety of support services for individuals and businesses wishing to re-skill and up-skill. In fact, West Yorkshire probably has the finest selection of higher education providers anywhere outside London (and we would argue anywhere at all!).
It is therefore fantastic to see one of our partners recognised for the second year running in the Times Higher Education Awards. Last year University of Huddersfield scooped the Entrepreneurial University of the Year and last night, 28 November 2013 they picked up University of the Year at the Grosvenor House Hotel in London, with comedian, broadcaster and writer Sandy Toksvig hosting.
“This is the most fantastic honour!” said a delighted Professor Bob Cryan, the University of Huddersfield’s Vice-Chancellor, who accepted the award in person.
“It is a tribute to all the staff who have worked so hard to get us where we are today. We are now well established as one of the country’s innovative universities – and the best is yet to come!” added Professor Cryan.
On behalf of all our partners we offer our HEARTfelt congratulations to all the students, staff and community of Huddersfield who helped deliver such a great result.
