All at Study Group would like to congratulate Bob Cryan, winner of the prestigious award of Inspiring Leader at the inaugural Higher Education Awards 2013, launched by The Guardian newspaper.
Bob is himself a University of Huddersfield graduate, having obtained a 1st class engineering degree, a part-time PhD and a DSc. He is also a proud Huddersfield man with a deep commitment to his local community.
“Bob is a leader in every sense of the word,” his nomination citation read. “His financial stewardship is exemplary, taking the university out of debt whilst embarking on £100m of visionary developments without borrowing. He is dedicated to ensuring that international students enjoy a high quality education at the University of Huddersfield and so his senior team have put in place mechanisms to ensure that international students influence the University thinking going forward.”
Study Group has maintained a strong partnership with the University of Huddersfield since 2008, when the International Study Centre was unveiled by Cryan himself.
