everything you need to know

There’s lots to think about when applying to university. Finding the right course, location, campus and accommodation are just a few. You’ll have flicked through prospectuses, searched through university websites and given it plenty of thought. But what happens next? We've put together an essential guide with all of the information and advice you'll need to take the next steps.

pick the right location

You may want to stay close to home, or perhaps you’d like to move further away and have a little more independence. Do you want somewhere quiet, lively, or a bit of both? The town or city you choose needs to suit your personality and needs. We love Leeds – it has something for everyone –  but don't take our word for it, hear from our students about what they enjoy so much about our great city.
