At the University of Leeds we strive to create, advance and disseminate knowledge, which not only develops outstanding graduates and scholars, but also has a direct impact on global society.

 

Established in 1904, we are part of the prestigious Russell Group – the 24 leading research universities in the UK, and are well known throughout the world for our quality of teaching and research. We have more than 32,000 students from 147 countries, and our total international student population exceeds 5,000.

 

Students are drawn by the excellent standards for teaching and research, with 91% of our final-year students rating their course as intellectually stimulating in the 2015 National Student Survey (NSS). Degrees from Leeds are well respected by employers and universities worldwide. The University continues to appear in the top 100 of the QS world rankings in 2015 – one of only 18 UK universities

 

Leeds is part of the Worldwide Universities Network, which brings together 18 research-intensive universities to collaborate on research, postgraduate degree programmes and continuing professional development. There is a thriving study abroad programme for our undergraduate students and the university has links with over 400 universities around the world.

 

Integrating research with learning and teaching is at the heart of our strategy; courses are taught by staff who are passionate about their subject and engaged in world-class research and cutting-edge professional practice. Our teaching programmes are underpinned by this research - meaning students have the opportunity to learn about the research process and experience how new knowledge is created.

 

We have over 2,600 postgraduate researchers, and in 2014-15 we secured 750 new research awards totalling £141million. We have been awarded 22 National Teaching Fellowships (given to academics in recognition of their imaginative and innovative learning and teaching methods). That’s more than any other institution in England, Northern Ireland and Wales – reflecting the excellence of our teaching. Interdisciplinary research is promoted through our many faculties, research centres and institutes.

 

In the 2014 Research Excellence Framework (which assesses the quality of research in universities and colleges in the UK) we are in the top 10 universities in the UK for research power, 80% of research at Leeds has a top quality rating of either “world leading” or “internationally excellent”.

 

We have one of the UK’s best students’ unions. 92% of final-year students rated the Union highly in the 2015 National Student Survey (NSS) and our students’ union is the only one in the UK to hold an ‘excellent’ status (NUS Quality Students’ Union Accreditation)

There are a wide range of co-curricular opportunities to take advantage of, from volunteering locally or abroad to performing in student productions or joining sports teams. Leeds University Union has over 300 clubs and societies, so students can further their interests or try something completely new.

 

Ours is one of the largest single campus universities in the UK (98 acres) just one mile from the city centre. Leeds is a vibrant city renowned as a centre for arts, sports, leisure, entertainment and nightlife. It has everything you would expect from a major city and is surrounded by beautiful, accessible countryside. With over 200,000 students living within the city boundaries, there is a real student focus, making it an exciting place to live and learn.
