University of Huddersfield International

Dear Students

We would like to take this opportunity to emphasise that you are welcome at the University of Huddersfield and that we also value the contribution that you make to our community.
The triggering of Article 50 will not lead to any immediate changes for you as current European students of the University. You will continue to pay the same fees for your degree programme as a UK student and you will not need to apply for a visa to stay in the UK.
In addition if you are an applicant for 2017/18 you will also not see any change in your current eligibility for a loan or fee status for the duration of your course (evenafter the UK leaves the EU).
If you have any questions you may wish to contact the University Finance Office or the International Office on Level 4 of Student Central.
These have provided by Universities UK (a body which represents all UK Universities) and give links to the necessary information and government announcements.

Is there any specific help for International Graduates?

There is a possibility (subject to the type of visa you hold) that a recent graduate of the University of Huddersfield can apply for permission to remain in the UK in order to start a business. This scheme is called the Tier 1 Graduate Entrepreneur route. Further information on this scheme is available from the International Office. We deliver workshops which explain how and when to apply for this scheme each term.
