The University of Huddersfield welcomes almost 20,000 students, including over 3,000 international students from more than 120 countries and is recognised for the quality of its teaching. It was the first university in England to achieve recognition as having the highest proportion of professionally-qualified teaching staff* and the first and only UK university to have achieved 100% of permanent teaching staff as Fellows of the Higher Education Academy**. In 2017, it won the first Global Teaching Excellence Award.

*HESA - First awarded in 2016, maintained in 2017 and 2018 and 2019. Joint first in 2020 and 2021. ** Permanent staff, after probation: some recently appointed colleagues will only obtain recognition in the months after their arrival in Huddersfield, once they have started teaching.
