who we are

why Leeds Beckett?

Our aspiration is to help create great graduates, exceptional employees, dynamic citizens and enterprising leaders.

We understand there's a lot to consider when your planning your next career move - so in this page you'll find just a few of the reasons why you should choose Leeds Beckett.

  1. Our vision

    Our students are a diverse community with different needs and aspirations. Teaching excellence is at the heart of our culture and academic practice, focusing on the provision of an outstanding education and experience for our students.

    We are proud of our polytechnic roots, and proud to have built on our heritage as a vital source of professional, vocational and applied learning, underpinning the social, economic, and cultural life of our city and region.

  2. Our spirit

    At Leeds Beckett University, we are united in our understanding of what working hard and having a bold, industrious spirit can bring.

    Our innovative, forward thinking is something that is fostered by our people and is shared with our students, helping us to not only create great graduates, but exceptional employees, dynamic citizens and enterprising leaders.

    Wherever we work within the university, we nurture the abilities that shape a lifetime, opening the minds of our students and opening doors to success.

  3. Our community

    Our community is made up of people from a range of social and cultural backgrounds, brought together in a world-class learning environment that celebrates both our proud heritage and exciting future.

    Both our impressive historic Headingley Campus and modern city centre hub offer award winning facilities, great resources and extensive support needed to allow both students and staff to thrive.

    And it's enabled us to become the only university in the UK to hold both the Customer Service Excellence (CSE) and IIP (Gold) accreditations across our whole institution.

  4. Our city

    Of course, also being located in the largest financial district outside of London also makes us a popular choice for staff, students and graduates alike. Leeds is a vibrant, cultural city that offers endless options.

    From the buzz of our thriving arts scene, to our impressive list of destinations for foodies, shopaholics and night owls, there's plenty to explore, right on our doorstep. But it doesn't stop here.

    We live in a truly fantastic county that's just waiting to be discovered, from the scenic Yorkshire Dales and the region's glorious coastline, to wildlife and World Heritage Sites. So whether you're new to the area or a long-term local, there's always something to see and do.
