Additional information

Exposure to various activities at the University of Huddersfield will enrich your knowledge and skills. An intensive induction pre-course workshop, which will be held in September and January, provides you with an in-depth insight into your course; helps promote an interactive environment between fellow students and meet with your tutors.

The core modules are generally taught and assessed using case studies in lectures and seminars and in some modules group project-based work. Tutors are experts in their field and with many having practical experience in industry and the professions which helps combine your academic knowledge with practical application. Many aspects of teaching and assessment are grounded in real life situations and, where possible, live projects are incorporated into the teaching.

Career support

Whether you’re progressing from education or currently working within the industry, our postgraduate courses aim to provide you with the required knowledge, skills and experience; as well as challenge your approach to complex situations.

Further study

Opportunities for course progression include the traditional PhD or a Master’s by Research; a one year, full-time research degree. It contains little or no formal taught component and is attractive if you want a briefer research-based degree or prepare for a full PhD.

Research plays an important role in informing all our teaching and learning activities. Through research our staff and students are contributing to the latest developments in their field. Our research activity has a strong focus on applied research in the key areas of marketing, branding and innovation that impact on both academic knowledge and professional practice. Our guiding vision is to conduct research that promotes excellence in marketing thought, innovation and application.

Inspiring Graduate

After researching Marketing courses across the UK, Oanh chose to study at Huddersfield, as she found our course had the most interesting and practical content. During her studies, she enjoyed studying the key communication issues that marketers face, and now plans to continue her Marketing career in South East Asia. 

"Initially, I didn’t think that a one-year masters course could offer both essential academic knowledge and real world experience. However, during the course, we had several opportunities to gain experience in strategic planning for real-life marketing cases such as Thorntons, Emirates and Virgin. This gave us the opportunity to implement our academic skills in a fast moving and competitive environment." - Oanh Thi Tram Nguyen, Marketing student
