Celebrating 50 years in 2016, Leeds Trinity University has transformed itself from two small Catholic teacher training colleges to an acclaimed university with an excellent track record for launching the careers of its students.
We were one of the first universities to include compulsory professional work placements with every undergraduate degree, and we now work closely with over 2,000 businesses who offer our students placements that are relevant to their degrees. The results speak for themselves, with 95% of our graduates employed or in further study within six months of graduating.
Our small community means we know each of our international students by name, helping them feel at home from the moment they arrive. The University is made up of a number of academic departments that offer a range of degree subjects such as Education, Film, Journalism, Sport, Business and Psychology. We are based on a beautiful campus just six miles from Leeds city centre – voted one of the UK's best student cities.
