A proud heritage

With origins dating back to 1824 Leeds Beckett is a modern, professional university with a proud history and an ambitious future. Leeds Beckett is made up of several colleges, all with long histories including Leeds College of Technology, Leeds College of Commerce, Leeds College of Art, City of Leeds College of Education, Carnegie College of Physical Education to name but a few. Throughout our history these respected institutions were brought together, each bringing with them a strong focus on applied, professional education and problem solving to form the university we’re proud to be today.
