“I took a gap year when I was 16 and went to Cambridge to study. I then went back to Mexico and studied my undergraduate degree and decided to return to the UK for my postgraduate studies. My external examiner was from Huddersfield and offered me to continue my research in food safety at the University of Huddersfield.
"The objective of my project was to evaluate the application and performance of food safety systems by finding out whether the application of such methods prevents pathogenic contamination. The quality of education in Huddersfield is excellent, particularly in Applied Sciences. The staff are very friendly especially in the library and laboratory technicians have been very patient with me.
"I joined the boxing club for recreational pleasure and have made loads of good friends on campus and now the trainers are even thinking of coming out to Mexico for their holidays!
"Coming from a small Mexican city and studied in many different British cities, I can honestly say that I have enjoyed my time here. To put it in perspective, when you are sitting having a drink with people from England, Japan, Germany and Italy, there is something special about that.”

I was very impressed with the facilities and look of the University; everyone seems focused on the individual student.....
"I know the UK has a good international reputation for Psychology and Counselling degrees and so I searched on the Internet and discovered the University of Huddersfield. I want to work on development and support projects around the world and studying in English was very attractive to me.
"I visited several UK universities and found the staff at Huddersfield the most welcoming and supportive, especially with the application process. I was also very impressed with the facilities and look of the University; everyone seems focused on the individual student.
"My course builds on my previous experience in humanity and anthropology studies and is helping me to change direction and give me the foundation to develop my skills in counselling and supporting other people in the future"
"During my time here I have become a student ambassador at the University and have become involved in several charity organisations. This was recognised by the British Council in 2010 and as a result I was nominated at the Shine awards which celebrates international students studying in the UK."
