2016

"There is a very strong international student body at Huddersfield. There is also some support for members of the LGBTQ+ community but there is possibly more to be done in an official capacity. A lot of welfare and support positions are handled by students in the LGBTQ+ society."
"I think it does: there are all the different clubs for different cultures, ethnicities and languages."
"There are loads of different ethnicities around the campus and the city."
"There's a wide range of backgrounds within the uni, though I feel more could be done to get people to mix and step outside of their comfort zones. However, there has been an emphasis on encouraging students to be more culturally diverse and to speak to a wider range of students, which is a positive step."
"I think there are a wide range of diverse backgrounds so I feel as though the university does appeal to quite a lot of backgrounds."
"There are places where you can buy halal food on campus."
"The uni is one of the most diverse in the country. There are many different nationalities represented on my course."
"Yes, definitely. There are lots of international students from all over the world."
"One of the first things I noticed about my university was how diverse the student population was. I met people from all over Europe, North America, Asia and Africa."
