“Life on campus is amazing – every time I come in it’s so welcoming.” – Joe Edge, student at Leeds Trinity University

Ranked among the UK’s top universities for graduate employability, Leeds Trinity University turns ambitious student visions into tangible realities. With almost 50 years’ experience in providing student-centred learning and an unparalleled student experience, the Leeds Trinity brand has helped carve its city’s name on the global education stage, and Leeds now stands as one of the UK’s most popular student hubs.

As a world-class provider of higher education, Leeds Trinity prides itself on its ability to provide a personalised, inclusive and above all unforgettable university experience through which every student is urged to unleash their full potential. And with 95 percent of graduates finding work or further study within six months of graduation, the institution’s impactful results truly speak for themselves. But what exactly does it mean to be a Leeds Trinity student?

  • It means breaking social boundaries & becoming an integral part of a warm and inclusive community…

With a diverse student body of just 3,000 students, Leeds Trinity is a relatively small university in the UK education sector. But though it may be small, it certainly packs a punch, providing everything one could possibly need right there on its beautiful grounds – from the Atrium Café to the chilled-out Lounge Bar, the campus comes readily-equipped to fill every hungry student appetite.

One of the things that makes Leeds Trinity stand out among regional competitors is in fact its intimate size; the tight-knit community means every student receives the one-to-one attention they deserve. Not only this, but this personalised approach to learning ensures every student is recognised as a talented and unique individual – at Leeds Trinity University, students are a name, not just another number.

And for students looking to launch a blockbuster class project, the on-campus Media Centre is on-hand with specialist production spaces, cutting-edge equipment hire, Trinity Vision, help and support, and even bespoke media training from experienced professionals to give you the tools you need to succeed.

On top of this, the university has invested millions to ensure it provides students with the ultimate spaces for both living and study. All international students are guaranteed on-campus single room accommodation, giving them a warm, modern and intimate space they can really call their own. This year, the university unveiled its brand-new, state-of-the-art Fountains Court living facilities to serve alongside the cutting-edge All Saints Court student residencies, providing a fully-equipped, contemporary space in which students can learn and grow.

The university also boasts convenient proximity to the city centre and beyond, one of the many perks of living on the edge of a lively UK city. The campus sits a mere six miles from the hubbub of Leeds city centre, meaning students are only a short bus or train ride away from everything Leeds has to offer. And from an international student’s point of view, it’s pretty handy that the campus is set just 1.5 miles from the Leeds Bradford International Airport.

  • It means pushing yourself to be the best you can be…

On top of providing an expansive portfolio of undergraduate and postgraduate courses, Leeds Trinity has a proven track record for effective teaching success. Classes are small and boast an inclusive knowledge culture, while all courses are delivered by leading experts of the field. This year, Leeds Trinity was ranked joint 6th out of 119 institutions for the effectiveness of its teaching by the prestigious Guardian University Guide.

As a university that fully understands and accepts the complex needs of the student, Leeds Trinity’s comprehensive student support services are there to provide help and advice whenever it might be needed. No matter whether student qualms lie in the realm of finance, disability, counselling, health, learning or beyond, this experienced team of professionals will do everything in their power to resolve the situation.

The Learning Hub is another successful faction of the university’s Support Services, providing friendly, personalised support tailored to the needs of the student, and seeking to boost their academic expertise. On top of this, Leeds Trinity provides an invaluable Peer Mentor Scheme – where students can seek help from their fellow students – as well as Development Tutors – academic staff who provide pastoral guidance throughout the students’ time at Leeds Trinity.

  • It means being happy and healthy…

Leeds Trinity is also equipped to indulge a little healthy competition among students, investing millions over the years into its first-class Sports and Fitness Centre. From the Gymnasium to the Athletics Track, the indoor and outdoor pitches and beyond; Leeds Trinity has everything students need to burn off that study stress!

Then there’s the Leeds Trinity Students’ Union (LTSU), encompassing pretty much everything that makes the Leeds Trinity student experience unique and unforgettable. Students can get involved with the clubs and societies; cast your vote for student council; snag a bargain with your NUS card; or really let loose through social activities.

  • It means forging a path to a thriving future…

Ranked among the top universities in the UK in terms of graduate employability, it’s clear that the Leeds Trinity formula for producing work-ready graduates is one that greatly benefits students and society at large.

A pioneer in the provision of professional work placements, Leeds Trinity gives students a meaningful launch pad into their very first graduate job. Its unique portfolio of degrees that offer a balanced blend of employability expertise, real-world work experience, extra-curricular opportunities and one-to-one support combine to make the Leeds Trinity graduate employable on a global scale.
