You know what one of my favourite parts of Uni life is? Football.
Some of my fondest memories from the past three years in Huddersfield come from playing football with different people at different places. And I am not even good at football. In fact, more often than not, I am the worst player on the field. Continue reading
We are in the last days of the Easter vacation and there are only two weeks of lectures left before the end of the academic year. Two weeks after that, for some of us, will be the last of student life.
The university has lined up some wonderful events to help us deal with the next few hectic weeks of worrying and chasing deadlines. Here are some of them. Continue reading
Spring is coming. It is getting warmer outside and we saw more sunshine last week than in the previous two months combined. Along with nature slowly starting to bloom, the University is getting more energetic too, with dozens of events taking place on Campus this month.
Here’s a glimpse of what to look forward to in March. Continue reading
“When did you first notice that your Mozart sounded like Stockhausen?”
Mozart and Stockhausen are poles apart. They are as similar as football and American football: there is a ball and there are players, but the similarities end there; like black and blue: both are colours, but not exactly the same.
This is why pianist Tim Horton’s choice of playing two sonatas by another classical composer – Beethoven – and a Stockhausen piece in between on his concert at St Paul’s Hall at Uni last Thursday (14 Feb) seemed very peculiar to me at first. Continue reading

It’s been awhile since my last blog in the series in which I talk about the hidden gems in the library. These are items that people would not normally borrow in relation with their studies, but can still prove to be beneficial in some way.
So far in the series I’ve talked about items from the fiction and films areas in the library, and for this blog I decided to have a stroll in the music department on the fifth floor. Continue reading
First of all, happy new year! I hope you’ve had a wonderful time away from Uni and are now back and ready for the second term of this academic year.
For my first blog post this year, I am going to briefly tell you about all the exciting events that are taking place at Uni in the next couple of weeks. Continue reading
The UK’s tallest freestanding structure is the Emley Moor Tower. It is also the 7th tallest in the European Union, and the 25th tallest tower in the world – 1,084 feet (330 m) high.
Why am I telling you that, you ask? Well, it is only a walking distance away from Huddersfield. Continue reading
A lot is happening at Uni this month. There are so many events taking place on Campus, that I had a hard time deciding which ones to tell you about in these 300-odd words.
However, the highlight is undeniably the annual international Huddersfield Contemporary Music Festival. Continue reading
…in which I talk about food, Mexican prisons and blood.
Hello and welcome back to another year at the University of Huddersfield! It’s been a while, but now I am back after a long and hot summer vacation in Bulgaria.
Also, hello and welcome to those of you who are in Huddersfield for a first time, freshly starting their new course and have never come across my humble blog before. It’s the place where you will read about anything and everything concerning life in Huddersfield, the University, or anything that revolves (remotely) around it.
First things first: the annual International Food Festival took place at Uni last week, and it was even better than last year’s. Continue reading
