This University is great! The staff are extremely friendly and helpful. During my experience at Huddersfield, I worked in the library therefore, I met different people of different backgrounds and everyone are just a friendly bunch! I love this University, the diverse community, the atmosphere and if I'm not happy with anything and I raise my issue then it is dealt with immediately just like anyone else's issue would be.
