Leeds Beckett University
On 22 September 2014, we became Leeds Beckett University. Our name may have changed but our proud history and excellent reputation remain. We offer world-class learning, an incredible campus and city environment, and a lively social scene that makes for the perfect student experience.
We have more than 100 years quality teaching experience and offer a range of courses shaped by industry and taught by expert lecturers. We are also proud to be the only university in the UK to hold both the Customer Service Excellence and Investors in People Gold accreditations.
Our Campuses & Facilities
Situated in the heart of Leeds, our City Campus is ideally placed. Our learning spaces include the award-winning Broadcasting Place, home to our art, design, architecture and built environment courses, The Rose Bowl which has an outstanding reputation as a business hub, and the Portland and Calverley buildings where you’ll find our specialist health facilities.
Less than three miles from the city, our Headingley Campus sits in 100 acres of parkland. Alongside its historic buildings, the campus has modern sport science laboratories, animation and music studios and the latest computing labs. It’s also where our main sports facilities are based, including pitches, inside and outside tennis courts and a running track.
Both campuses have libraries, open 24-hours a day, seven days a week, every day of the year.
Invest in Your Future
You’ll benefit from our great links with local business and, with more than 100,000 companies in the region, there are plenty of opportunities on your doorstep. Many of our courses offer a placement year and some are accredited by professional bodies.
We offer a host of study abroad and volunteering opportunities, as well as opportunities to network with industry employers through our graduate fairs and guest lectures. Past speakers have included World Cup Final Referee Howard Webb, creative director Kate Hawkins who worked on the London Olympic ceremonies and Hugh Pym, BBC Chief Economics Correspondent.
