University of Leeds

University of Leeds Good University Guide

Leeds is runner-up for our University of the Year award once again, having reached its highest position ever in successive league tables. It is now ranked 14th having stood 30th just three years ago. It has powered ahead off the back of high levels of student satisfaction and strong outcomes in the latest research ratings, published last December.

Already among the most popular universities in the country, Leeds attracted an additional 5,000 applications in 2014. The university has increased its intake of undergraduates for the past two years and has been investing heavily in more academics, as well as campus improvements.
