Open days and campus tours

One of the best ways to get a feel for our campus is by coming to one of our open days. You’ll be able to find out about our courses with subject-specific talks and meeting some of our staff and students.

If you can’t attend an open day but would like to visit the University, you may also be able to visit schools within the Faculty, but you should contact the school in advance. Please be aware that during term time departments are not always able to accommodate visitors due to teaching commitments. There are also opportunities for international students to get a feel for studying at Leeds before you make your decision.

If you are planning to study a research degree, you may wish to discuss your research idea with an identified supervisor.

Applicant days

As your choice of university is very important and we want you to have all the information you need to help you make the right decision, we invite suitable applicants to attend an applicant day, which we encourage you to attend.

Our applicant days are more in-depth than our general University open day. You’ll be able to:

  • take part in group activities
  • tour our facilities
  • find out more about your course
  • chat to current students and academic staff over lunch

During the day you’ll have a discussion with an academic member of staff, to check that it’s the right course for you and your career plans, have your questions answered and find out more about studying at Leeds. For more details about the applicant day relating to the course you have applied for, visit the course page.

HE talks and workshops

Our Education Engagement team attend many local and national HE fairs and conventions. These events provide young learners with an excellent opportunity to find out more about the opportunities at the University of Leeds. Find out more on our higher education events webpage.

Overseas visits

We regularly travel overseas to meet with students interested in studying at Leeds, so you may be able to meet a representative in your country. Our overseas offices provide advice and will guide you through each stage of your application.  We also work with representatives worldwide to provide an international network of advice and support.  

Talk to a current student

Link to Leeds gives you the opportunity to talk directly to some of our current international students. It is ideal if you’re thinking of applying to, or are an offer holder for, the University of Leeds and would like to hear about other students’ experiences or have questions about being a student here.

You can talk directly to some of our current students in the following ways:
