Overseas visits

University of Leeds staff and recruitment officers regularly travel overseas to meet with students interested in studying in the UK. These visits include attending exhibitions or conducting interviews at our overseas representatives’ offices.

Our staff are able to give you advice on anything, from studying at the University of Leeds, choosing the right course for your future career and guidance on how to apply.

Our alumni also often attend such events, so you can find out more from them about their experiences of studying with us.

Upcoming visits in your country

Academic staff and other representatives from the University of Leeds International Office regularly travel to countries such as China, India, Nigeria, Malaysia, among others, 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.

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 campusvisits@leeds.ac.uk or phone 0113 343 6792.

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.

Contact a student

If you’re thinking of applying to or are an offer holder of the University of Leeds 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.
