Schools liaison

A college student talking to someone from The University of Leeds

We offer a range of outreach events aimed at raising the aspirations of young people at school or college. Contact us to arrange an event for your students.

Opportunities for all

We are committed to attracting and supporting the very best students, whatever their circumstances.

The University of Leeds has a dedicated Education Engagement Team who aim to build strong links with local schools and colleges. Working alongside academics, they offer a range of resources and events, delivering a wide-ranging programme of both aspiration-raising and curriculum-enhancing activities. 

Register for the quarterly teachers' and advisors' Ezine to stay up-to-date with the latest news, information and opportunities available.

Leeds Loves... Business

Would you like your class of Year 11 or Year 12 pupils to hear directly from current students about what it is like to study a business degree? Our Social Sciences Outreach Team offer a number of activities for your students to connect with us.

Visit the Social Sciences Outreach website to find out more. 

Access to Leeds (A2L)

The Access to Leeds programme is for students who want to study an undergraduate degree with us, but their background means they are less likely to attend university. It offers eligible students the chance to study an undergraduate degree with lower entry requirements than those listed on our course pages. 

Around 900 eligible Access to Leeds students register on an undergraduate course at the University of Leeds every year. 

Visit the Access to Leeds website for more information on the eligibility criteria and how to apply.

Additional activities

If your school is interested in a more specific business-related activity with a view to raising the aspirations of your students in applying to a research-intensive university, please get in touch

Activities the Business School has provided include taster days, campus tours, parent information days, admissions talks, speakers at schools and a Summer School scheme. We also provide mentoring to local schools as well as working with Reach for Excellence and Gifted and Talented pupils.
