Meet us

Open days

The best way to get a feel for our impressive single-site campus is by coming to one of our open days.

An open day will give you an opportunity to:

  • Learn more about School of Medicine courses at subject talks
  • View our facilities, including the Medical Teaching Centre (MTC) and clinical skills rooms
  • Watch clinical demonstrations
  • Get hands-on with our Technology Enhanced Learning (TEL) resources
  • Learn about clinical experience and work placement opportunities
  • Meet staff and current students
  • Take a look at our student accommodation
  • Tour the University Union building, indoor sports facilities and libraries.

You're welcome to bring others along with you, including parents or carers.

Our campus is just a short walk from Leeds city centre and we would encourage you to take a stroll in the city to give you a sense of what Leeds has to offer, from shopping and entertainment to the many restaurants and bars.

Applicant days

Your choice of university is very important and we want to make sure you have all the information you need to make the right decision. Suitable applicants are invited to attend an applicant day, a more in-depth introduction to the School and your course than our general University open day.

At an applicant day you'll be able to:

  • Participate in group activities.
  • Tour our facilities, including the MTC and clinical skills rooms.
  • Find out more about your the course you're interested in.
  • Chat to academic staff and current students.

The day will give you the chance to discuss your application, check your course of choice suits your career plans and have your questions answered. You’re welcome to bring others with you, including parents or carers.

Campus tours

If you're unable to attend an open day but would like to visit the University, we offer organised campus tours throughout the academic year. Guided by one of the University's current students you'll have the opportunity to ask questions about life at Leeds.

We offer tours most Wednesdays during term time, with more frequent tours available during peak times.

The student-led tours of the campus will feature the following major facilities:

  • Leeds University Union.
  • Campus libraries.
  • The Edge Sports Centre.
  • One of our halls of residence.

Depending on when you visit you may also be able to visit members of the academic department relevant to your study plans. However, you should contact the School in advance to make an appointment and be aware that during term time departments are not always able to accommodate visitors due to teaching commitments.

For any queries about campus tours please email or call 0113 343 6792.

UCAS fairs

UCAS fairs offer you the chance to have your questions answered and pick up a University prospectus.

Our Education Engagement team attend many local and national HE fairs and conventions. These events provide year 12 students with an excellent opportunity to find out more about the opportunities the University of Leeds has to offer and to have any questions answered in person.

Overseas visits

University of Leeds staff and recruitment officers regularly travel overseas to meet with students interested in studying in the UK. Countries frequently visited include China, India, Nigeria and Malaysia, amongst others. These visits include attending exhibitions or conducting interviews at our overseas representatives' offices.

Our staff are able to give you advice on anything related to studying at the University of Leeds, from choosing the course that suits your career aspirations to guidance on how to apply. Our alumni also attend such events and will share with you their experiences of studying at Leeds and answer any questions you may have.

Take a look at our upcoming visits to find out if we are attending an event near you.

Contact a student

If you are an international student thinking of applying to the University of Leeds or are an offer holder and would like to hear other students' experiences, you can approach a Link to Leeds Ambassador. They will be able to answer questions about life as a student here at the University and what it's like to live in Leeds.
