Campus tours

Offer holder days

We understand how important your choice of university is and we want you to have all the information you need to help you make the right decision.

In addition to the university open days which anyone can attend, we also invite our offer holders to subject-specific events.

Offer holder days give you the chance to discuss your application, your career plans, and check that your course is right for you before submitting your final choices to UCAS.

These events usually include the opportunity to:

  • find out more about your course
  • chat to current students and academic staff
  • tour our school buildings as well as the wider campus and its resources
  • meet other students who may be joining Leeds at the same time as you.

International events

Our staff regularly travel overseas to meet with international students interested in studying within the United Kingdom. Visits include attending education exhibitions and fairs, or conducting interviews at our overseas representatives’ offices.

We'll be able to give you advice on all aspects of studying with us; from choosing the right course for your future career to guidance on how to apply.

Take a look at our upcoming visits to find out if we are attending an event near you.
