Open Days

Whether you are interested in studying a Masters or research degree, our postgraduate open day is the perfect opportunity to get the information you need to go to the next level.

The Institute for Transport Studies hosts an annual Masters Open Day in spring. This provides a fantastic opportunity for you find out more about our courses, discuss your subject area of interest with an academic member of staff and meet current students.

You’ll also be able to find out more about available scholarships, support for Masters students and discuss any admissions queries you may have.

The University of Leeds organises a Postgraduate Open Day every year. You'll be able to explore campus, attend informative talks and visit subject-specific activities to find out more about the course you want to study.

Campus tours

If you can’t 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 Students’ Union
  • libraries
  • the Edge Sports Centre
  • one of our halls of residence.

Depending on when you visit, you may also be able to visit schools within the Faculty, but you should contact the school in advance to avoid disappointment.

Please 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 phone 0113 3436792.

Talk to an international student

If you’re thinking of applying to or are an offer holder of the Institute for Transport Studies and would like to hear about other students’ experiences, you can speak with one of the Link to Leeds Ambassadors. They will be able to answer questions about life as a student at the University and what it is like to live in Leeds.

International campus tours

If you are an EU or overseas fee paying student, you can book an international campus tour. The tours, led by students, include the International Student Office, the Brotherton Library and our sports centre. They do not include visits to individual departments or accommodation.

For further information contact the International Office.

Visits to your country

Every year, academic staff and other representatives from the University of Leeds travel overseas, to meet with students interested in studying in the UK. Take a look at our upcoming visits to find out if we are attending an event near you.
