Open days

Following government guidance, our undergraduate open days will not take place on campus as planned.

We have developed a digital alternative through our Virtual Open Days platform to help you get a feel for campus and find out what it’s like to study and live at Leeds. You’ll be able to take part in a range of sessions from subject information, to accommodation guidance and more.

Our autumn Virtual Open Days are planned from 21 September to 3 October,  where we’ll be running a series of live talks where you can ask questions to our academic staff, admissions team and current students. 

For the most up to date information visit the University of Leeds Virtual Open Days 

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.

The day will give you the chance to discuss your application, check your course is right for you and your career plans, and have your questions answered. You’re welcome to bring others with you, including parents and carers.

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.

Campus tours

Following government guidance, we are unable to offer campus tours at this time.

However, ordinarily, we offer tours most Wednesdays during term time, with more frequent tours available during peak times. Find out more.

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.

UCAS fairs

UCAS fairs are a great opportunity to have your questions answered and pick up a University prospectus. 

Our Education Engagement team attend many local and national HE fairs and conventions. These events provide Year 12 students with an excellent opportunity to find out more about the opportunities at the University of Leeds and have any questions they may have answered in person.

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.

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.
