University of Huddersfield

Huddersfield University is the direct descendant of the Young Men's Mental Improvement Society, which started in 1841. After various changes in name and structure it became Huddersfield Polytechnic in 1970 and then the University of Huddersfield in 1992. It continues to invest millions of pounds in buildings around the campus and has over 13,000 students locally, as well as many overseas and surrounding areas. It has recently been awarded the prestigious award of Entrepreneurial University of the Year at the Times Higher Education Awards 2012.
