    A Rich heritage

    Originally, the university was formed as The Leeds Mechanics Institute in 1824 and, since then, has enjoyed a flourishing growth of new buildings and centres to make it what it is today. 

    Our history of delivering quality education and teaching dates back to 1824.

      Diverse student community

      We're proud to say that students from 143 countries and territories choose to study with us.

      I joined the International Society, and mingled with people from all over the world and learned more about their cultures. Hopefully after I’ve completed my studies, I can travel and explore their countries!
