“Since graduating from the University of Huddersfield, I got a job offer from one of the most popular language schools in Thailand. I’m now working as a Chinese representative and helping to develop the Chinese market.

My time in Huddersfield was a gift of life. I had been to many nice places in the UK, Huddersfield is definitely one of my favourite places and the most student friendly place to study and live in. 

My major was Professional Development. The tutors were very impressive and professional. We still stay in contact with each other by sending emails, photos and festival greeting cards. We have become very good friends. 

My study turned me into an active learner and independent thinker. The tutors assessed our learning outcomes in the form of presentations and assignments. These really challenged us as being non-native speakers. The library is all-inclusive that you can get almost all the reading articles you want. We spent a lot of time over there, researching, discussing, sharing ideas and writing until very late at night. But we did feel content and happy.”
