Organization profile

Profile Information

Academic staff have very close working relationships with the professional field and are engaged in a range of outreach activities.  We strive to reach out with our research, scholarship and partnerships to influence the world around us. Staff consistently rate working in the School very highly in the Quality of Working Life Survey.   We expect high standards from ourselves and take considerable pride in our work. 

The School is located in two adjacent buildings, the Lockside and Haslett (formerly Canalside East) buildings, which are converted mills that run alongside the Huddersfield Canal.  They are well–equipped and maintained, and provide an attractive and welcoming environment for students and staff.

The School has a thriving research culture, and hosts a range of lectures and seminars, which attract external partners as well as staff and research students. Our research activities have a collaborative approach and are organised through our overarching Huddersfield Centre for Research in Education and Society (HudCRES) In the Research Excellence Framework (REF 2014) 94% of the School’s research was celebrated as being world class or of international importance.
