Being a part of HE at Calderdale means, not only do you have access to first class teaching resources, but if you choose to study on a degree awarded by a partner university, you will also have access to a range of their resources.
Our partner universities fully support our vision of widening access to HE for local people. At the same time the partnerships ensure that we can provide you with the very best opportunities and expertise to make your study experience exciting, interesting and, most importantly, valuable in terms of your own journey.
