University of Leeds

With a huge 33,000 students, Leeds is the fifth-largest university in the UK with a serious pedigree to match its size. Currently ranked 10th-best in the country by The Times, its students enjoy an unbeatable social life as well as a brilliant education.

It was ranked in the top three in the UK and top 20 worldwide for graduate employability by QS in 2016, and was named the fifth most-targeted British uni by the UK’s leading graduate employers in 2017. It was named the runner-up in Sunday Times’ University of the Year list in the same year. Its business school is ranked in the top 1% in the world. Quite simply, it’s an outstanding place to study, whatever your course.

It spans over 1200 acres across this Northern powerhouse city, with the main campus just north of the city centre. It has a striking mix of art deco, brutalist, Gothic revival and postmodern architecture with a truly legendary student union that plays host to many huge gigs and club nights. Over £380 million has been spent on improving its campuses over the last decade, bringing with it state-of-the-art facilities.

Our Marsden House and iQ Leeds buildings are an easy 15-minute walk from the main campus, with features including a cinema, a gym, PlayStation rooms, a garden and courtyard and parking spaces.
