About the University of Leeds

The University of Leeds has been named UK 'University of the Year 2017' by The Times and The Sunday Times' Good University Guide.

The University of Leeds campus is only a 10 minute walk from the city centre. By 2015/16 the university will have spent more than £100m on new buildings and refurbishment to create an environment to pursue excellence in research and teaching, with a further £200m of expenditure in the pipeline. The Edge is a state-of-the-art fitness, sport and well-being facility, which includes a 25m eight lane swimming pool and the largest fitness suite of any UK university.

Leeds has been awarded 22 National Teaching Fellowships – more than any other institution in England, Northern Ireland and Wales – reflecting the excellence of their teaching. The University continues to appear in the top 100 of the QS world rankings in 2014 – one of only 19 UK universities. Leeds is a member of the Russell Group of research-intensive universities as well as the Worldwide Universities Network (WUN), which comprises 16 research-intensive institutions spanning six continents. In the 2015 National Student Survey, 90% of Leeds students said they were either satisfied or very satisfied with the overall quality of their course. The University has been ranked 1st out of 14 participating Russell Group universities for international student satisfaction with learning environment in the latest International Student Barometer survey.

The University of Leeds is affordable and student friendly due to being home to 41,000 graduates. It is situated in Yorkshire, Northern England and is a highly central location for travelling the UK. The train system is efficient and easy to use in the UK with major cities such as Edinburgh being 3 hours away, London 2 hours away and Manchester only 54 minutes away. The stunning town of York is only 22 minutes by train also. The city is famous for its array of shopping destinations, theatres, art, culture and nightlife. With that plus over 300 student societies, there is plenty to choose from to fit any interests. Leeds is surrounded by stunning countryside and is just 2 hours by train from London and 3 hours by train from Edinburgh.
