2017

"I have made friends with people from all around the world and there are many different nationalities within the uni."
"Considering the large population of international students at the University of Huddersfield, yes, I think they do enough to attract students with a diverse background. The uni is not exclusive and lets everyone know that, if they want to study hard and get the future they want, they can come here no matter their background."
"Yes, more than enough to attract, help and support students from a diverse range of backgrounds."
"A lot of foreign students come to Huddersfield and there is a large international population so they must do well in attracting them."
"I know the uni has a volunteer scheme to welcome foreign students and help them to feel at ease when coming over to study."
"Huddersfield is a very diverse place as it is and the courses attract an even wider variety of people so the uni definitely doesn't need to do much to improve it."
"On my course alone there is a diverse range of students. I see various students from a variety of backgrounds and feel that the university supports all cultures and religions."

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."
