Student Profile(s)

Martyn Richardson

“I progressed onto my Master’s by Research with funding from the Heritage Consortium, after doing my undergraduate course at Huddersfield. The History postgraduate community is friendly and welcoming, encouraging academic professionalism to develop
in a supportive environment. The weekly Graduate Seminars allow for the flow of different ideas and experiences which we can call on for our own research. One of my highlights was a heritage study trip to Budapest where I presented my research to staff and students at Central European University – a nerve-racking but beneficial experience.”.
