We've been helping students find the right postgraduate course for over a decade.
Leeds is one of the largest cities in the UK, located in the Yorkshire and Humber region in the north of England. It is home to three universities, with over 60,000 resident students on a wide range of degree programmes.
The history of Leeds is closely associated with its role as a centre of the textile trade in both pre- and post-Industrial Revolution Britain. The city is still a major manufacturing centre, but has now become established as an important financial hub.
Leeds is also associated with a growing creative and digital entertainment industry and is home to the offices of many major UK and international videogame developers.
Leeds offers postgraduate students a unique combination of heritage and cultural innovation, with a famous carnival, a range of theatres and art galleries and some of the UK’s biggest live music events.
If you decide to take a break from the urban experience, Leeds’ road and rail transport links also make it easy to access nearby parts of England, including historic cities and university hubs such as York and Sheffield as well as attractive rural areas such as the Yorkshire Dales and Peak District National Parks.
The oldest university in Leeds is the University of Leeds, established in 1904. It is a member of the Russell Group of elite UK Research Universities and is usually ranked in the top 100 institutions worldwide and within the top 20 universities in Britain.
The two other universities in the city are Leeds Beckett University (formerly Leeds Metropolitan University) and Leeds Trinity University.
In addition to the city’s three universities, you’ll also be able to study a Masters in Leeds at smaller higher education institutions, including the Leeds College of Music and the Northern School of Contemporary Dance.
Leeds has a robust and diverse economy, with major business sectors including legal and financial services, creative industries and advanced manufacturing. Many national and multinational companies have significant presences in Leeds, including Asda, First Direct, BT and Yorkshire Bank.
